|Besaw's (at NW 23rd & Savier) has been around since 1903 - wow!
Don, the Yelp community manager for Portland, explained that Besaw's is primarily known for breakfast and brunch. So, this event was to highlight some of their lunch and dinner items, as well as their signature drinks, in hopes of drawing in more evening business. (Case in point: about half the people at the event had been there for breakfast or brunch, but none had ever been there for dinner.)
Cara enjoyed good food, good Sangria, and did make a new friend named Tom, who also wasn't able to bring his +1 (his wife).
