In Vino Veritas
As many of you know, my brother, Bruce Bauer, owns Vino, a wine shop in Sellwood. He opened the shop in the late 90s when the neighborhood was still a little backwater of antique shops and small industrial businesses. In the decade since then, he has watched it grow into another of Portland's neighborhood gems, with thriving boutiques, restaurants, small businesses and places for neighbors to meet and exchange news.
"For me personally to leave the Sellwood neighborhood after more than a decade is quite devastating, and has been the cause of much lost sleep," he said in an e-mail to customers, explaining that issues with his landlord had forced him to make the move. "I am very saddened to think that I won't be seeing many of you as often as I have become accustomed to. I treasure what Vino has become over the years here…much more than the simple retail store I thought it would be."
Ken's Artisan Pizza. He'll be closing the Sellwood location on Sept. 25 (the last Friday tasting will be on Sept. 17), and is hoping to reopen in the new location in late November.
