End of an era, guys. After ten years, the Half and Half is closing and the distro side of the Eggy universe will most likely be closing with it. This Friday will be your very last chance to buy a slice of the best pie in Portland, a cup of the best coffee in Portland and the new Jefre Cantu-Ledesma tape all at the same place, so make sure to stop by this week if not on the 30th itself, which will be a day-long celebration filled with booze, tears and maybe the Woolen Men. The space will be taken over by Courier Coffee, who are good, good friends of mine, and there's really no one else out there with the chops to step in. 923 SW Oak will no doubt remain a Portland institution under their care, and however sad I am to see the Half and Half close, I am also very proud of my friends as they take the next big steps forward with the business that is their life's vision.
