The good news: Byways Cafe indeed is having a popup at Sisters Gourmet Deli. The bad news: it’s on a Sunday when all of Portland’s brunch spots already are super-crowded. Why isn’t this happening on an off-day (by which I mean a slow day, not a day off) at Sisters Gourmet, so that it’s not effectively a competition between their regulars and the jostling Byways refugees? That would be more consistent with the venue’s “community over competition” branding for these popups. This scheduling likely keeps me away from the event.
