For those of us still in denial about the onset of fall weather, Belly owners Cameron and Linda Addy invite neighbors and friends to an ice cream social to thank them for a warm welcome to the neighborhood on September 20th. This friendly café on the corner formerly occupied by the way-too-upscale-for-the-neighborhood and extremely short-lived Terroir has been doing a decent business with approachable food at approachable prices and seems to be on the road to becoming a neighborhood staple.
Details: Ice Cream Social at Belly. Sat., Sept. 20, 2-4 pm; free. Belly, 3500 NE MLK Jr Blvd. Phone 503-249-9764.
