FEAST — The fourth annual Feast Portland swarmed Thursday through Sunday with chefs, mixologists, magazine editors, food lovers, and security guards. Most of the events were all about eating and drinking like a rockstar, but there were educational panels, too. To help those who attended to relive the waist-band-stretching reality that was Feast 2015, as well as satisfy the curiosity of those who missed it, here are the highlights, including scenes from the industry-only afterparties.

BOOZE MAP — It isn't hard to find a great craft brewery in Portland, but how easy is it to find a great brewery that also has great food?

NEXT LEVEL BURGER — On a vegan fast food mission, Next Level Burger announced on Facebook that it will open its first Portland location at 4121 SE Hawthorne Blvd on October 19 (plans to expand to Seattle are already in the works). Previously aiming for a September opening, the Bend-based vegan burger company is one of the city's most anticipated restaurants to open this fall and promises a menu of all plant-based, non-GMO, and dairy-free food.
