SEATTLEDamn the Weather, the highly anticipated cocktail bar with a menu from The Walrus and the Carpenter alum Eli Dahlin that's as interesting as its drink list, launched in Pioneer Square this week. Look inside the new space from former, founding Fleet Foxes member Bryn Lumsden. [ESEA]

PORTLAND— Portland's unofficial "Restaurant Row" of SE Division Street (already home to Pok Pok, Ava Gene's, and dozens of other worthy restaurants) has welcomed another new spot: Pizza Maria, a neighborhood pizzeria by baker Sean Coyne, who happens to be an alum of Thomas Keller's Bouchon Bakery and NYC's acclaimed Sullivan Street Bakery. And Division's dining options will expand even more later this summer, when a new hybrid food cart pod and nursery brings several food carts and a beer garden to the already-hoppin' street. [EPDX]

SEATTLE— If you've had dinner in Seattle, chances are you've eaten in one of Ethan Stowell's ten restaurants. If not, Chippy's just opened and it's as good a place as any to start. The chef/restauranteur is an avid cookbook collector, with around 2,000 titles spread between his home, restaurants, and storage. Eater talks with Stowell about his favorites. [ESEA]

PORTLAND— It's officially summer in the Pacific Northwest (in Portland, anyway), so with a nostalgic nod to 7-Eleven Slurpees, Eater PDX has compiled a handy map of 10 Spots to Score Boozy Frozen Drinks. On the other end of the depressant/stimulant spectrum, this week also saw the launch of Unfiltered, a new column honoring the new, the old, and the futuristic in Portland's coffee scene. Check out the inaugural interview, with C.J. Speelman of Tanager Coffee Roasters. [EPDX]
