It looks like my OLCC app is up on the web. Erin from Eater has already asked me about it. I applied for a liquor license at the Blue Pig Cafe spot because I am currently in lease negotiations to take over the spot. Many of you already know that I've been looking for a spot for a taqueria for a couple years now and have come close in negotiations before. If I'm able to ink a deal, I'll be sure to post a preliminary menu and give more details. For now, though, it's a taqueria with a full liquor license serving a unique style of street food from Mexico City. Name of the place would be Mi Mero Mole.

Nothing to congratulate yet. Lawyers still have to be lawyers.

Hopefully, mole is not just in the name but the menu. Good luck.

Best of luck on the long, strange journey you are about to engage in.

Great news! I was wondering if something was going on after one of your tweets about various City of Portland depts being closed at 3 the other day.

MSG, if you can serve papadzules at least ONCE (that's all I ask) at your new place, I will be a happy, happy man.

A niche that needed to be filled by the right person, in the right location, with the right food. Best of luck and count us in as one of your first patrons.

Thanks everyone. I guarantee that if this ends up being a go, there will be pre-opening PortlandFood.org tastings.

Yeah, Division really needs more really good restaurants...a real dearth in the area.

Jimminy.....we're DYING here in NoPo....please...something...ANYTHING!!! Is there no hope?!?!?

Sorry, still hurting Tanuki not getting the MLK/Fremont.

Congrats on the new place. I'm sure it will rule.

No sympathy. You have tons of great stuff in NoPo. Killingsworth & 30th: DOC, Autentica, Yakuza and so on. Then Podnah's, FOTM and more. And Kim Boyce's bakery going in on 50-something and Sandy, pho places, the $1/lb Chinese noodle shop, Gartners, the works.

You'll just have to drive over to Mi Mero Mole like we Westsiders will be doing. At least you won't have to cross bridge traffic to get there.
