Birding in Peace
Summer Birding Sundays
Except for some lingering individuals, by the end of the first week in June nearly all the northbound migrants will have disappeared from the city. Locally nesting birds will be incubating eggs or busily raising their first broods. In July we should see the offspring of our resident Red-tailed Hawks bravely preparing to leave the nest. Warbler songs will be replaced by chirring Cicadas and the tweets of fledgling birds. Butterflies and dragonflies are abundant. By late-July, expect the arrival of the first southbound migrants.

Before our gates open to the general public, birding expert Rob Jett leads these peaceful Saturday/Sunday morning walking tours to discover the many birds that call Green-Wood home. Green-Wood’s official birding checklist is available to pick up from the security guard at the main entrance on 25th Street or to print here. Comfortable footwear is recommended.

Ridgewood Reservoir ​​​Community Tour
The Ridgewood Reservoir in Highland Park is a 50+ acre natural oasis that straddles the border of Brooklyn and Queens. Built in 1859 to supply the once independent City of Brooklyn with high quality water, it became obsolete with the addition of new reservoirs in the Catskills in the 1950’s and was decommissioned in the 1980’s. Since then, nature took its course in a perfect case study of ecological succession. A lush and dense forest has grown in its two outside basins while a freshwater pond with waterfowl sits in the middle basin.

Fifty years ago the area now known as the Bloomingdale Woods was a sandy, pine-oak woodland littered with everything imaginable; burnt cars, discarded housewares and un-recycled cans and bottles. A hike through the woodlands of Bloomingdale Park will reveal the effects of a half century of time and human intervention. Protectors of Pine Oak Woods fought a protracted fight to keep the woods a natural area. Participants will meet at the corner of McGuire Avenue and Ramona Avenue.

          Wingmans, Kilburn      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

There was a time, not so long ago, when we thought we knew burgers. Available on every pub menu in Britain, not to mention all of the familiar international chains on every high street, they were as familiar to the average Briton as fish and chips or bacon sandwiches, a staple of the late-night kebab shop and Saturday afternoon back garden BBQ. Bun, minced beef, tomato, lettuce, ketchup, done. What's the big deal? What's the drama?


It took a wobbly streetfood van in the corner of a car park in Peckham in the summer of 2009 to wake us from our collective delusion. Britain had not, it turned out, actually known burgers. At all. Oh sure, we thought we had - we'd known things that looked like burgers, that had the vague form and texture of burgers, that were labelled as "burgers" on menus. But no, we hadn't ever known real burgers because here Yianni of the Meatwagon finally was to show us how it should be done, and how utterly misguided we were as a nation in thinking those sad, grey little piles of watery mince hiding inside floury bread rolls were anything approaching the real deal. No, the Meatwagon made real burgers, and a nation's eating habits were transformed.


The problem with the state of burgers in the UK pre-Meatwagon was that people thought they were already in their final form and never really put much of an effort into discovering they were wrong. And much can be said about the state of the country's Buffalo wings. Properly done, Buffalo chicken wings - named after the city of Buffalo in upstate New York and nothing to do with bison - are the ultimate American drinking food, the combination of spicy cayenne sauce (usually Frank's) cut with butter, crisp fried wings and fresh chunky blue cheese dip hitting all of the sour/sweet/hot/soft/crunch pleasure points. But order them from the majority of pubs and bars in the UK and you will be presented with chicken that has been any combination of smoked, grilled or baked, covered in anything from BBQ sauce to sweet chilli. And as for a decent blue cheese dip? Well, good luck with that. A trip to the Peckham "WingJam" last week confirmed the sad state of wing affairs in the capital - out of eight or so stalls, only one - from Brother Bird - were any good at all.

There are precious few wing specialists in London - and therefore the UK - offering anything approaching an acceptable product. My previous favourite was Orange Buffalo, who make probably the best blue cheese dip around, but their "Buffalo" sauce, nice though it is, is made using mango and is therefore non-standard. I'm a strong believer that you have to get the basic recipe correct first before experimenting with variations, and was happy to discover Wingmans (stupid name I know - should there be an apostrophe there? Why not Wing men?), newly installed on Kilburn High Road, seem to be playing things fairly straight. Frank's buffalo sauce, celery, blue cheese dip. Hopes were high.


First the good news, and it is very good news. The chicken wings themselves are basically perfect. Large, healthy looking things with a delicate fried crust, the flesh was moist and firm, and the sauce just exactly the right balance of tangy cayenne heat and dairy. Unfortunately (and it's a very big unfortunately) they'd seen fit to offer them with quite the worst "blue cheese" dip I'd come across outside of Domino's pizza, a horrid thin and artificial pile of gloop with no discernible texture and very little taste other than a faint note of chemical grease. The fact the same kitchen could make chicken wings so good and saw no issue in serving them with this travesty of a blue cheese dip is genuinely baffling. What were they thinking?


A couple of days before my trip up to Kilburn I'd found myself in the Temple Brew House, a friendly little spot near the office with an astonishing selection of draught beers. More out of hope than expectation I ordered their "Buffalo wings" and wasn't entirely surprised to discover they were disgusting - soggy, formless little things so overcooked they'd dissolved into mush, in an insipid "Buffalo" sauce that tasted more like Heinz tomato soup than anything involving Frank's Hot Sauce. However, bizarrely, the blue cheese dip they came with was wonderful - fresh and vibrant with huge chunks of blue cheese, it was everything a blue cheese sauce should be. Someone should get these guys together; with the Temple Brew house dip and the Wingmans chicken, they'd have an unbeatable combo. It would be like when Yianni met Scott Collins.


Wingmans (I hate saying that word) also do the usual Asian-influenced variations. Shanghai Oriental was decent, with the same good chicken and addictive crunch of the Buffalo paired with ginger, spring onion and coriander. I've certainly had far worse. And "Jamaican Me Crazy" wings were certainly the advertised "HOT!#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000" although I'd quite liked to have seen scotch bonnet chillis being used instead of red for extra Carribbean authenticity.


Truffle parmesan fries were good, although leaving the skins on always smacks slightly of laziness. And a bowl of "spicy Korean gochujang and sesame cucumbers" was underpowered, tasting of little more than rubbery cucumber. So yes, the sides need a bit of work.


I don't know how to come to any easy conclusions about a restaurant that can get one half of a dish perfectly right, and another half incredibly wrong. I really want to give 10/10 for the chicken and 1/10 for the blue cheese dip, but that way madness lies so instead I'll just go for a score that vaguely reflects my overall satisfaction with the place; namely, not very satisfied but not completely disappointed either. Plus there's every chance that one day soon Wingmans may realise their blue cheese dip is a disaster and will have another shot at it. Until then, the search for the perfect product goes on. Is anyone out there ready to be the Meatwagon of Buffalo wings?

          Busted Melon (Rebroadcast) - 4 June 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

When writing textbooks about slavery, which words best reflect its cold, hard reality? Some historians are dropping the word "slave" in favor of terms like "enslaved person" and "captive," arguing that these terms are more accurate. And raising a bilingual child is tough enough, but what about teaching them three languages? It's an ambitious goal, but there's help if you want to try. Plus, a class of sixth-graders wonders about the playful vocabulary of The Lord of the Rings. Where did Tolkien come up with this stuff? Also, funny school mascots, grawlixes, that melon's busted, attercop, Tomnoddy, purgolders, and dolly vs. trolley vs. hand truck.

FULL DETAILS

In an earlier episode, we discussed funny school mascot names. Listeners wrote in with more, including the Belfry Bats (the high school mascot of Belfry, Montana) and the Macon Whoopie hockey team, from Macon, Georgia.

A Fort Worth, Texas, couple disagrees about how to pronounce the word gymnast, but both JIM-nist and the more evenly stressed JIM-NAST are fine.

A musician from Youngstown, Ohio, is designing an album cover for his band's latest release. He wants to use a grawlix, one of those strings of punctuation marks that substitute for profanity. "Beetle Bailey" cartoonist Mort Walker coined the term, but is there a grammar of grawlixes?

Quiz Guy John Chaneski has a puzzle about words and phrases that people have tried to trademark, including a two-word phrase indicating that someone's employment has been terminated, which a certain presidential candidate tried unsuccessfully to claim as his own.

He's a native English speaker who's fluent in Spanish. She grew up in Cameroon speaking French. They're planning a family, and hoping to raise their children to speak all three. What are the best strategies for teaching children to speak more than two languages? The Multilingual Children's Association offers helpful tips.

Offbeat mascot names from Montana include the Powell County Wardens (so named because the high school is in the same county as the Montana State Prison), and the Missoula Loyola Sacred Heart Breakers.

Growing up in Jamaica, a woman used to hear her fashion-designer mother invoke this phrase to indicate that something was good enough, even if it was flawed: A man on a galloping horse wouldn't see it. Variations include it'll never be seen on a galloping horse and a blind man on a galloping horse wouldn't see it. The idea is that the listener to relax and take the long view. The expression has a long history in Ireland and England, and the decades of Irish influence in Jamaica may also account for her mother's having heard it.

The country of Cameroon is so named because a 15th-century Portuguese explorer was so struck by the abundance of shrimp in a local river, he dubbed it Rio dos Camaroes, or "river of shrimp."

The organization Historic Hudson Valley describes the African-American celebration of Pinkster in an exemplary way. It avoids the use of the word slave and instead uses terms such as enslaved people, enslaved Africans, and captives. It's a subtle yet powerful means of affirming that slavery is not an inherent condition, but rather one imposed from outside.

A sixth-grade teacher from San Antonio, Texas, says he and his students are reading The Lord of the Rings. They're curious about the words attercop, which means "spider" (and a relative of the word cobweb) and Tomnoddy, which means "fool." Grant recommends the book The Ring of Words, as well as these online resources: Why Did Tolkien Use Archaic Language? and A Tolkien English Glossary.

If you're in the Ozarks, you might hear the expression that means the same as water under the bridge or spilled milk: that melon's busted. The idea in all three cases is that something irrevocable has happened, and there's no going back.

A listener from Abilene, Texas, recounts the incredulous reaction he got when he was in England and asked some burly fellows for a dolly, meaning a wheeled conveyance for moving heavy loads. He asked for a two-wheeler, then a hand truck, and finally learned that what they were expecting him to ask for a trolley.

Madison East High School in Madison, Wisconsin, is the proud home of the Purgolders. That school mascot resembles a golden puma in purple attire, with a portmanteau name that combines those two colors.

This episode is hosted by Martha Barnette and Grant Barrett.

La Nouvelle Académie suédoise, créée il y a quelques jours pour qu'un Prix Nobel de Littérature alternatif soit malgré tout remis en 2018 après l'annulation de la distinction officielle, a dévoilé la liste de ses auteurs et autrices nommés. 46 auteurs, en majorité de Suède et des États-Unis, mais aussi trois Français, Nina Bouraoui, Maryse Condé et Édouard Louis.

Le report du Prix Nobel de Littérature 2018 pour l'année 2019 a choqué un certain nombre de personnalités de la culture suédoise, qui ont décidé, début juillet, de créer une Nouvelle Académie, afin de décerner un Prix Nobel de Littérature alternatif. « Nous avons fondé la Nouvelle Académie pour rappeler à tous que la littérature et la culture dans leur ensemble doivent promouvoir la démocratie, la transparence, l'empathie et le respect, sans privilège, arrogance ou sexisme », ont indiqué les créateurs de cette organisation au moment de sa création.

 

Après avoir lancé un appel aux candidatures, avec des noms d'auteurs et d'autrices du monde entier fournis par les bibliothécaires suédois, une liste de 46 noms a fait son apparition sur le site de la Nouvelle Académie. On y retrouve des noms régulièrement cités pour le Prix Nobel de Littérature, comme Margaret Atwood, Paul Auster, Don DeLillo, Joyce Carol Oates, Amos Oz ou encore Haruki Murakami (la liste complète en fin d'article). 

 

On découvre également les noms de trois auteurs français : Nina Bouraoui, née en 1967, Maryse Condé, née en 1937, et Édouard Louis, né en 1992.

 

D'autres noms, dans cette liste, détonnent, car il est peu probable que l'Académie suédoise les ait elle-même sélectionnés dans sa liste du Nobel de Littérature : on retrouve ainsi J.K. Rowling, l'autrice de Harry Potter, et Neil Gaiman, alors que l'Académie Nobel est réputée tourner le dos à la littérature de genre.

 

Scandale à l'Académie Nobel : Jean-Claude Arnault
sera jugé pour viol

 

Pour rappel, le Prix Nobel de Littérature 2018 a été reporté, événement rarissime, après un scandale lié à des agressions sexuelles perpétrées dans l'entourage du jury du Prix Nobel, et passées sous silence.

 
Il est possible de voter en désignant trois auteurs sur le site de la Nouvelle Académie. Le nom du lauréat ou de la lauréate sera dévoilé le 14 octobre 2018.

          Antarctica's monster iceberg is still alive 1 year after its birth — but the Maryland-size ice block is floating toward its doom      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

antarctica iceberg a68 larsen c ice shelf nasa earth observatory usgs

  • A Maryland-size iceberg broke off Antarctica in July 2017.
  • One year after calving, iceberg A68a has floated about 40 miles away from its birthplace.
  • A68a is wandering north, where it should eventually break up and melt.
  • Although the process may take a few years, some large icebergs survive for decades.

One of the largest icebergs ever documented is still mostly intact one year after it broke off Antarctica, despite losing a big chunk and having its northern flank smashed to bits.

The huge ice block, called A68 or A68a, calved from the Larsen C ice shelf in July 2017. It's hard to say exactly when A68 was born due to limited satellite coverage and thick cloud cover, but it happened sometime last year between July 10 and 12.

Scientists at the time estimated iceberg A68 to be about the size of Maryland. It measured 1,000 feet thick and weighed 1.1 million tons — roughly the weight of 20 million Titanic ships.

Iceberg A68 appears mostly intact today; satellites are watching as it floats in the Weddell Sea about 40 miles off the ice shelf on the Antarctic Peninsula.

However, an animation shared by the Antarctic research program Project Midas shows that the 'berg has taken a beating.

"The iceberg has been pushed around by ocean currents, tides, and winds, and its northern end has repeatedly been grounded in shallower water," the authors of a Project Midas blog post wrote on Monday. "These groundings led eventually to further pieces of the iceberg being shattered off in May 2018. Whilst not quite large enough to be given labels themselves, the total area of icebergs lost from A-68 in May was the size of a small city."

The time-lapse animation below shows part of the Antarctic Peninsula from March 12, 2017 through July 5, 2018. You can see a huge crack in the Larsen C ice shelf creep north until the iceberg completely breaks off, then follow the path it has taken since.


"Over the last year A-68 has not drifted far because of dense sea-ice cover in the Weddell Sea," Project Midas said.

What will eventually happen to iceberg A68

Antarctic icebergs calve naturally as snow piles up, forming ultra-dense ice that gravity then drags toward the ocean.

From there, a predictable yet erratic story plays out.

historical iceberg tracks scatterometer climate record pathfinder esa

Most icebergs that calve from the Antarctic Peninsula get caught up in wind and water currents that drag them clockwise around the Southern Ocean as they move north.

Scientists can't be sure where iceberg A68 will ultimately float, though some think it could drift more than 1,000 miles north to the Falkland Islands. The largest 'bergs can even reach South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands before vanishing.

Martin O'Leary, a researcher at Swansea University and Project Midas, said on Reddit last year that A68 could take a couple of years to drift that far.

It could be many years before it completely melts.

In the case of B15, the second-biggest iceberg in recorded history, the process has taken nearly two decades. B15 snapped off Antarctica's Ross ice shelf in 2000. It had a surface area of 4,200 square miles — about the area of Jamaica and twice that of A68. Today it's drifting in warm waters near South Georgia.

Warmer air causes surface melt that "works its way through the iceberg like a set of knives," Kelly Brunt, a glaciologist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, said in a NASA Earth Observatory post in October 2017. "This is often the end of the life cycle of a lot of Antarctic icebergs."

Scientists continue to study and debate what caused A68 to break off, including the role of climate change driven by human activity.

"To me, it's an unequivocal signature of the impact of climate change on Larsen C," Eric Rignot, a glaciologist at NASA JPL, told CNN in July 2017. "This is not a natural cycle. This is the response of the system to a warmer climate from the top and from the bottom. Nothing else can cause this."

          Sex work, labour unfreedom, and the law      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

‘Free’ labour exists when it is guarded by a system of rights and protections. This places the vast majority of migrant and citizen sex workers at the extreme end of unfreedom.

On 2 June, sex workers and activists gathered globally to mark the struggle for sex workers’ rights. International Sex Workers Day is just one day of the year dedicated to the struggle for sex workers. Activists gather on 3 March to mark International Sex Worker Rights Day and on 17 December to mark International Day to End Violence against Sex Workers.

These dates occur because of the historical and ongoing violence against, and exclusion of, sex workers. Sex workers are subject to interpersonal forms of violence, including from police officers and clients, and the structural violence of criminal justice and immigration institutions. They are frequently criminalised or otherwise negatively affected by anti-trafficking laws and policies, and are subject to heightened immigration controls. In the United Kingdom, the Tory government’s hostile environment has created additional layers of institutionalised insecurity for many migrant sex workers, including restrictions on access to housing, healthcare, education, and banking services.

In a recent article I wrote for Feminist Legal Studies, I argue for a Marxist feminist methodology capable or describing and opposing these intersecting exclusions and oppressions as they apply to migrant sex workers in the UK. However, this method can be used to understand the precarious living and working conditions of all sex workers. The fieldwork I am currently conducting with Julia O’Connell Davidson, Jacqueline Sanchez Taylor and Cecily Jones in Jamaica demonstrates this nicely with regard to citizen sex workers.

A Marxist feminist understanding of sex work

My methodological starting point is capitalist relations of (re)production. I believe that the exploitative and alienating relationships we develop with each other and nature as we interact to (re)produce the necessities for life sit at the core of our problem as activists and workers. Our labour, or practical human activity – the work we do for a wage, in the home, and in the community – is being harnessed by capitalism. We are being exploited, alienated, and dispossessed, and this is happening in and through gender, ‘race’, and the law.

We are being exploited, alienated, and dispossessed, and this is happening in and through gender, ‘race’, and the law.

I argue that capitalist relations of (re)production exist on a continuum of unfreedom. At one end of the continuum is ‘free’ labour; the quotation marks signalling that freedom within capitalism cannot exist because we cannot reproduce families, communities, and ourselves without dispossession, exploitation, and alienation. ‘Free’ labour, then, is characterised by the limitation of labour unfreedom. It exists where waged and unwaged labour is embedded in a system of labour and social rights and protections, including a living wage, freedom to change employers and to contest conditions, freedom of movement, access to affordable housing, education, childcare, and eldercare.

In order to understand how we strive for freedom, Marxist feminists reject any approach that privileges ‘structure’ over ‘agency’, ‘experience’ or ‘consciousness’. In other words, because our everyday labour relationships are constitutive of, and are constituted by, capitalist relations of (re)production it is immanently possible for us to collectively contest these very same relations. This is particularly important in the context of sex work and debates about sex work or ‘prostitution’. Sex workers voices are not often heard and academics tend to focus too much on constraints or choice rather than the dynamic interplay between structure and agency.

Unfree migrant and citizen sex workers

What, then, does this tell us about the expression of capitalist legal relations and sex work? To start with migrant sex workers in the UK: immigration law repressively incorporates these workers. Migrant sex workers do not arrive with a visa to work in the sex industry. Heightened policing – through a combination of immigration law, anti-trafficking law, and absent labour and social protections and rights – further pushes sex work into the margins and associates it with ‘other’ jurisdictions and spaces. This legal ‘othering’ is reinforced by media discourses and prevailing gender, sexual, and racial stereotypes in the UK. By this point solidly ‘othered’, this status becomes a justification for their devaluation and abuse by the state, employers, intermediaries, and clients.

Citizen sex workers experience many of the same legal exclusions in the UK as migrant sex workers. Labour law rarely touches the sexual services sector. Citizen sex workers who work in managed environments experience employment precarity. The dominant employment relation in such contexts is false self-employment, and so workers have no certainty of employment, little control over the labour process, and no regulatory protection. While wages can be adequate there is no certainty that a debt relationship between the worker and management will not emerge. Unless sex workers register as self-employed they will not be able to access many social welfare protections that depend on being in paid employment.

Invisibility, devaluation, criminalisation, and state disavowal all combine to allow managers and clients to practice high levels of exploitation, control, and abuse.

As a form of work that often takes place in the ‘private’ sphere (the ‘thick walls’ of the home, apartment, or brothel) it is not seen as ‘real’ work by the employers, clients, or the state. The relationship between sexism, the desire to control female sexuality, and the stigmatisation of sex workers also helps to explain on-going criminalisation and the widespread reluctance to see sex work as a legitimate form of service work. This mix of invisibility, devaluation, criminalisation, and state disavowal all combine to allow managers and clients to practice high levels of exploitation, control, and abuse.

Through conversations and a collaborative workshop with the Sex Worker Association of Jamaica, we have learnt that Jamaican sex workers are also rendered criminals and second-class citizens in a host of ways that do not turn on having illegal status.

If ‘free’ labour exists where all labour – paid and unpaid – is embedded in a system of labour and social rights and protections, we must conclude that the vast majority of (migrant) sex workers globally populate the extreme end of unfreedom. At the same time, Marxist and social reproduction feminists stress the fact that:

“interests and relational dynamics can and do compete with the capitalist imperative. Struggles for access to abortion, childcare, better wages, and healthy drinking water, for example, reshape relations between workers and capital, and those among workers themselves. If successful, they chip away at patriarchal and other forms of relations; if they fail, they tend to reinforce such relations” (Ferguson 2016).

Sex workers and activists in the UK, Jamaica, and globally are discussing and demanding labour ‘freedoms’. They are arguing for individual and collective labour rights in combination with regulation of labour intermediaries, recruitment agencies and brothels/clubs, decriminalisation, social welfare entitlement, and radical restructuring of border controls in recognition that these ‘freedoms’ will transfer a significant amount of power to (migrant) sex workers. In the words of one Jamaican sex worker, it is time to stop “using, abusing, and refusing sex workers”.

          T&T opens with big win      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

T&T Under-17 cricketers opened the defence of their Cricket West Indies (CWI) Regional U-17 title, with a crushing win over Barbados in the opening round at the Brian Lara Academy in Tarouba.

Led by brilliant batting from Leonardo Julien and excellent spin bowling from Samir Ali, the T&T boys ran away winners by 154 runs.

Batting first, the two-time defending champions got 83 from Julien to post a competitive 250 for eight off their 50 overs. Barbados had no answers to the T&T slow bowlers and Ali picked up 3/13, as they crashed to 96 all out.

Julien, the Merryboys left-hander, was in fine form from the moment he went to the crease and took charge of proceedings. He and Tariq Mohammed posted 60 runs for the second wicket before Mohammed left for 31.

Julien battled on and posted his half-century. He found an able partner in Rivaldo Ramlogan and they shared 82 runs for the fifth wicket. When Julien departed for 83, he had faced only 115 balls in 158 minutes of batting, striking six fours and three sixes.

Ramlogan scored a quickfire 57 off just 49 balls with two fours and three sixes. Towards the end, Isaiah Gomez made 22 not out from 17 balls. The pick of the bowlers for Barbados was Mathew Forde who took 2/37.

When Barbados batted it failed to forge any meaningful partnerships and this crippled its reply. Opener Rashawn Worrell hit a top score of 19. Apart from Ali, fellow spinner Anderson Mahase took 2/25. Ramlogan, Jaden Seales, Gomez and Nicholas Ali each took one wicket.

In other matches, the Leeward Islands defeated Jamaica by one wicket at Gilbert Park in California. Batting first the Jamaicans made only 137 all out and the Leewards, although losing wickets regularly, made 139/9 in reply.

Across at the National Cricket Centre in Balmain, Couva, Windward Islands signed on with a thumping 59-run victory over Guyana. The Windwards made 284/8 and Guyana stumbled to 225 all out.

          CSME implementation on fast track      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

KINGSTON, Jamaica—Heads of Government of the Caribbean Community (Caricom) have put measures in place to fast-track the full implementation of the Caricom Single Market and Economy (CSME).

Among the strategies is a special meeting of Caricom Heads to focus solely on the CSME, to be held in T&T in November.

Caricom Chairman, Jamaica’s Prime Minister Andrew Holness, added that the Prime Ministerial Sub-Committee on the CSME will now have quarterly meetings beginning in September in Barbados, which will be hosted by Prime Minister Mia Mottley “to give urgency to the implementation process.”

He further noted that Government leaders also put greater focus on advancing those areas that would help to create enabling support measures for a competitive Single Market.

These include an investment policy and investment code, an incentive regime, an integrated capital market and securities legislation.

“As leaders, we expect that these matters will be ready for full adoption at the 40th meeting of (Caricom Heads of Government) in July 2019.These mechanisms will enable strong support measures for a successful CSME,” Holness said.

He also stressed the Heads’ recommitment to making the mechanisms within Caricom work, by taking decisive action.

“I am resolved as the Chair to ensure that we take action. We must get things done to make a difference. We are resolved to now begin to implement the decisions we take to improve the perceptions, especially amongst our youth,” he said.

The CSME is an integrated development strategy that is intended to benefit the people of the region by providing more and better opportunities to produce and sell goods and services and to attract investments.

It is built on five core regimes – free movement of capital, free movement of goods, free movement of skills, the provision of services, and the right of establishment. In addition, the CSME facilitates hassle-free travel for all Caricom nationals. (CMC)

While approximately 80 per cent of the enslaved children born to white fathers in 18th and early 19th-century Jamaica remained in slavery, thousands of elite ‘coloured’ or ‘brown’ boys and girls were sent to England or Scotland to be educated, either in the hope of improving their prospects when they eventually returned to the island or in the expectation that there would be a better life for them here rather than there.

          Shuler Hensley, Andrew Kober, and More Complete Cast of The Public's TWELFTH NIGHT      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Public Theater has announced complete casting for the Shakespeare in the Park production of Twelfth Night.

The complete Equity cast of Twelfth Night features Kim Blanck (Female Understudy), Ato Blankson-Wood (Orsino), Lori Brown-Niang (Maria), Troy Anthony (Sebastian), Nanya-Akuki Goodrich (Olivia), JW Guido (Featured Illyrian), Daniel Hall (Sir Andrew Aguecheek), Javier Ignacio (Male Understudy), Nikki M. James (Viola), Jonathan Jordan(Antonio), Andrew Kober (Malvolio), Patrick J. O'Hare (Fabian), and Shaina Taub (Feste), with Shuler Hensley joining the company as Sir Toby Belch, replacing the previously announced Jacob Ming-Trent who had a scheduling conflict. The Equity company is joined by two rotating ensembles of community members from all five boroughs who will perform together on the Delacorte stage in this enchanting comedy.

Conceived by Kwame Kwei-Armah and Shaina Taub, with music and lyrics by Shaina Taub, choreography by Lorin Latarro, and directed by Oskar Eustis and Kwame Kwei-Armah, Twelfth Night will officially open on Tuesday, July 31 and will run through Sunday, August 19.

TWELFTH NIGHT features scenic design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Andrea Hood, lighting design by John Torres, sound design by Jessica Paz, hair and wig design by Cookie Jordan, fight direction by Lisa Kopitsky, orchestrations by Mike Brun, and music direction by Shaina Taub.

In celebration of five extraordinary years of Public Works, a Public Theater initiative that invites community members across New York to create ambitious works of participatory theater, Free Shakespeare in the Park presents a re-imagining of Public Works' 2016 musical adaptation of Twelfth Night for a full five-week run in Central Park. Professional artists and two rotating ensembles of community members from all five boroughs will perform together on the Delacorte stage in this enchanting comedy about Viola (Nikki M. James), a young heroine who washes up on the shores of Illyria, disguises herself as a man, is sent to court a countess, and falls in love with a Duke. Featuring music and lyrics by critically-acclaimed songwriter Shaina Taub, this very special Twelfth Night is a unique partnership between two Public Theater programs that exemplify The Public's commitment to radical inclusion. Oskar Eustis, The Public's Artistic Director, and Kwame Kwei-Armah, incoming Artistic Director of London's Young Vic, helm this unforgettable musical about love in all its many disguises.

Public Works is a national and international initiative currently affiliated with four theaters throughout the U.S. and Europe to create ambitious works of participatory theater in the Public Works model. The current theaters are Dallas Theater Center in collaboration with SMU Meadows School of the Arts; Seattle Repertory Theatre; Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit; and The National Theatre in London. In March 2017, Dallas Theater Center presented their inaugural Public Works Dallas production, The Tempest, directed by DTC Artistic Director Kevin Moriarty and featuring 200 Dallasites. Seattle Repertory Theatre presented their inaugural Public Works Seattle production of The Odyssey in September 2017, directed by Marya Sea Kaminski. In October 2017, London's National Theatre announced a new partnership with The Public, PUBLIC ACTS, inspired by The Public's successful Public Works model. The partnership launches with a new staging of Pericles performed on the National Theatre's Olivier stage in August 2018, directed by National Theatre resident director Emily Lim. The Public Works productions of The Tempest, The Winter's Tale, and The Odyssey are also available to be produced through Theatrical Rights Worldwide. Additionally Public Works' As You Like It and Twelfth Night are available to be produced through The Musical Company.

The Public Works Shakespeare in the Park musical adaptation of Twelfth Night will run for five weeks during the summer in an expansion of the model that has been presenting Public Works pageant shows for limited performances in early September over the past five years at the Delacorte. The expanded five-week run this summer will allow 50,000 more New Yorkers to see this inspiring community initiative.

Tickets to The Public Theater's Free Shakespeare in the Park are distributed, two per person, at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park on the day of the show. The Public continues its partnership with TodayTix, who will again be offering the exclusive Mobile Ticket Lottery for Free Shakespeare in the Park. Tickets will be distributed by mobile lottery on the TodayTix app each date that there is a public performance at the Delacorte Theater. On each public performance date, a limited number of vouchers for that night's performance will also be distributed via an in-person lottery at The Public Theater, 425 Lafayette Street at Astor Place.

TWELFTH NIGHT ticket vouchers will be distributed, while supplies last, on July 17 at Hunts Point Library (877 Southern Blvd, Bronx); July 19 at St. George Library (5 Central Avenue, Staten Island); July 20 at Center for Family Life (PS 503/PS 506 at 343 - 60th Street, Brooklyn); July 25 and August 8 at Mott Haven Library (321 E. 140th Street, Bronx); July 27 atFlushing Library (41-17 Main Street, Queens); July 29 and August 14 at Snug Harbor (1000 Richmond Terrace, Staten Island); August 2 at Windsor Terrace Library (160 E. 5th Street, Brooklyn), August 4 at Stapleton Library (132 Canal Street, Staten Island); August 10 at Long Island City Library (37-44 21st Street, Queens); August 11 at Brownsville Recreational Center (1555 Linden Blvd, Brooklyn); August 16 at Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning (161-4 Jamaica Avenue, Queens); and August 18 at DreamYard (1085 Washington Avenue, Bronx).

The Delacorte Theater in Central Park is accessible by entering at 81st Street and Central Park West or at 79th Street and Fifth Avenue. To learn more, or to make a contribution, call (212) 967-7555, or visit www.publictheater.org.

          U.S. Coast Guard Medevacs 89 Year Old Passenger From Carnival Vista      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Turks and CaicosThe U.S. Coast Guard medevaced an 89-year-old man suffering from a stroke from a Carnival cruise ship on Monday.

The Carnival Vista was heading from Miami to Ocho Rios, Jamaica, sailing around the north-eastern corner of Cuba, when the Carnival cruise ship contacted the Coast Guard for medical assistance. The Carnival ship had left Miami on Sunday and was sailing near the western waters of the lower Bahamian islands. 

At around 1:30 p.m. on Monday, the Carnival Vista contacted the Coast Guard which reportedly dispatched  a MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter from the Coast Guard station in Clearwater, Florida. The Carnival ship was approximately 138 miles west of Great Inagua, Bahamas.

The man, suffering from chest pains and accompanied by a nurse, was taken to Cheshire Hall Medical Centre on the island of Providenciales in the western Turks and Caicos. He arrived around around 6:45 p.m. at the hospital. His medical condition is currently unknown.

          Sex work, labour unfreedom, and the law      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

‘Free’ labour exists when it is guarded by a system of rights and protections. This places the vast majority of migrant and citizen sex workers at the extreme end of unfreedom.

Sally T. Buck/Flickr. CC (by-nc-nd)

On 2 June, sex workers and activists gathered globally to mark the struggle for sex workers’ rights. International Sex Workers Day is just one day of the year dedicated to the struggle for sex workers. Activists gather on 3 March to mark International Sex Worker Rights Day and on 17 December to mark International Day to End Violence against Sex Workers.

These dates occur because of the historical and ongoing violence against, and exclusion of, sex workers. Sex workers are subject to interpersonal forms of violence, including from police officers and clients, and the structural violence of criminal justice and immigration institutions. They are frequently criminalised or otherwise negatively affected by anti-trafficking laws and policies, and are subject to heightened immigration controls. In the United Kingdom, the Tory government’s hostile environment has created additional layers of institutionalised insecurity for many migrant sex workers, including restrictions on access to housing, healthcare, education, and banking services.

In a recent article I wrote for Feminist Legal Studies, I argue for a Marxist feminist methodology capable or describing and opposing these intersecting exclusions and oppressions as they apply to migrant sex workers in the UK. However, this method can be used to understand the precarious living and working conditions of all sex workers. The fieldwork I am currently conducting with Julia O’Connell Davidson, Jacqueline Sanchez Taylor and Cecily Jones in Jamaica demonstrates this nicely with regard to citizen sex workers.

A Marxist feminist understanding of sex work

My methodological starting point is capitalist relations of (re)production. I believe that the exploitative and alienating relationships we develop with each other and nature as we interact to (re)produce the necessities for life sit at the core of our problem as activists and workers. Our labour, or practical human activity – the work we do for a wage, in the home, and in the community – is being harnessed by capitalism. We are being exploited, alienated, and dispossessed, and this is happening in and through gender, ‘race’, and the law.

We are being exploited, alienated, and dispossessed, and this is happening in and through gender, ‘race’, and the law.

I argue that capitalist relations of (re)production exist on a continuum of unfreedom. At one end of the continuum is ‘free’ labour; the quotation marks signalling that freedom within capitalism cannot exist because we cannot reproduce families, communities, and ourselves without dispossession, exploitation, and alienation. ‘Free’ labour, then, is characterised by the limitation of labour unfreedom. It exists where waged and unwaged labour is embedded in a system of labour and social rights and protections, including a living wage, freedom to change employers and to contest conditions, freedom of movement, access to affordable housing, education, childcare, and eldercare.

In order to understand how we strive for freedom, Marxist feminists reject any approach that privileges ‘structure’ over ‘agency’, ‘experience’ or ‘consciousness’. In other words, because our everyday labour relationships are constitutive of, and are constituted by, capitalist relations of (re)production it is immanently possible for us to collectively contest these very same relations. This is particularly important in the context of sex work and debates about sex work or ‘prostitution’. Sex workers voices are not often heard and academics tend to focus too much on constraints or choice rather than the dynamic interplay between structure and agency.

Unfree migrant and citizen sex workers

What, then, does this tell us about the expression of capitalist legal relations and sex work? To start with migrant sex workers in the UK: immigration law repressively incorporates these workers. Migrant sex workers do not arrive with a visa to work in the sex industry. Heightened policing – through a combination of immigration law, anti-trafficking law, and absent labour and social protections and rights – further pushes sex work into the margins and associates it with ‘other’ jurisdictions and spaces. This legal ‘othering’ is reinforced by media discourses and prevailing gender, sexual, and racial stereotypes in the UK. By this point solidly ‘othered’, this status becomes a justification for their devaluation and abuse by the state, employers, intermediaries, and clients.

Citizen sex workers experience many of the same legal exclusions in the UK as migrant sex workers. Labour law rarely touches the sexual services sector. Citizen sex workers who work in managed environments experience employment precarity. The dominant employment relation in such contexts is false self-employment, and so workers have no certainty of employment, little control over the labour process, and no regulatory protection. While wages can be adequate there is no certainty that a debt relationship between the worker and management will not emerge. Unless sex workers register as self-employed they will not be able to access many social welfare protections that depend on being in paid employment.

Invisibility, devaluation, criminalisation, and state disavowal all combine to allow managers and clients to practice high levels of exploitation, control, and abuse.

As a form of work that often takes place in the ‘private’ sphere (the ‘thick walls’ of the home, apartment, or brothel) it is not seen as ‘real’ work by the employers, clients, or the state. The relationship between sexism, the desire to control female sexuality, and the stigmatisation of sex workers also helps to explain on-going criminalisation and the widespread reluctance to see sex work as a legitimate form of service work. This mix of invisibility, devaluation, criminalisation, and state disavowal all combine to allow managers and clients to practice high levels of exploitation, control, and abuse.

Through conversations and a collaborative workshop with the Sex Worker Association of Jamaica, we have learnt that Jamaican sex workers are also rendered criminals and second-class citizens in a host of ways that do not turn on having illegal status.

If ‘free’ labour exists where all labour – paid and unpaid – is embedded in a system of labour and social rights and protections, we must conclude that the vast majority of (migrant) sex workers globally populate the extreme end of unfreedom. At the same time, Marxist and social reproduction feminists stress the fact that:

“interests and relational dynamics can and do compete with the capitalist imperative. Struggles for access to abortion, childcare, better wages, and healthy drinking water, for example, reshape relations between workers and capital, and those among workers themselves. If successful, they chip away at patriarchal and other forms of relations; if they fail, they tend to reinforce such relations” (Ferguson 2016).

Sex workers and activists in the UK, Jamaica, and globally are discussing and demanding labour ‘freedoms’. They are arguing for individual and collective labour rights in combination with regulation of labour intermediaries, recruitment agencies and brothels/clubs, decriminalisation, social welfare entitlement, and radical restructuring of border controls in recognition that these ‘freedoms’ will transfer a significant amount of power to (migrant) sex workers. In the words of one Jamaican sex worker, it is time to stop “using, abusing, and refusing sex workers”.

          Microsoft engineer shares her immigration story and sheds light on a broken system      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Microsoft engineer shares her immigration story and sheds light on a broken systemIn a heart-wrenching post, a Microsoft software engineer opened up about her personal immigration story. Sri Ponnada shared on Facebook that she must leave the United States in six months because of the nation's current immigration issues that have forced her and her family to wait years for green cards, despite proper documentation. Her post is starting conversations about how the system is also impacting children who came to this country, and those who are now adults still navigating a complex green card process.   SEE ALSO: 5 books about immigrant and refugee experiences that you'll want to read with your kids On a page dedicated to support for her case, Ponnada, who is currently residing in Washington, offered a detailed account of her experiences as a child who immigrated to the country with her parents when she was 14 from Jamaica, though she is originally from India. In the post, she discusses the opportunities she seized while a student at University of Iowa, and the contributions she and her family have made — such as her mother's work as "a doctor in an underserved community in Iowa." Ponnada also shared that she has worked with non-profits, encouraging girls to join STEM fields and is involved in social service projects with the city of Seattle outside of her work at Microsoft.  "I have had great opportunities in this country so far, but I still face the same anxiety I’ve had since childhood about my visa status," she explains. "Even though I have lived here practically my whole life and work at Microsoft, I had to apply for a H1B visa — which is a LOTTERY — just to be able to stay in the country because there is no way for kids like me to stay here with our parents who become lawful permanent residents through the green card process." The immigration status of Ponnada's parents is unclear, but we've reached out for additional information.  H-1B visas are temporary visas filed by employers. Due to the amount of people seeking the visa, petitions are chosen via lottery. Those who are selected are granted three years of work within the United States. According to the New York Times, many (though not all) visas are granted to software engineers and those working in tech, like, Ponnada.  "I haven’t been selected for a H1B in the lottery - so when my STEM OPT expires next February, I’ll have to leave my family, my friends, and my home in the United States — the only country I’ve known since I became a teenager," she explains on Facebook. STEM OPT is a program facilitated by the Department of Homeland Security for those who have graduated from a STEM program at an accredited U.S. college or university.  "Where should I go? Jamaica - where I came from? Or to India where I was born but haven’t lived in since I was 3 years old?," she continued. Ponnada explains that while she is currently  working and residing in the country on a STEM OPT extension, she initially came on a dependent children's visa. "Due to the huge green card backlog for individuals from India, I lost my dependent visa status at the age of 21 as I was no longer a minor," she recounted. This meant she had to convert her initial dependent children's visa to a student visa in order to complete her education.  When her extension runs out in six months, she will have to "self-deport" because she was unable to obtain a visa, despite having a permanent job. "That makes no sense to me," she wrote. "And I hope it doesn’t make sense to you either."  In another post, Ponnada shared the ways in which people can support her efforts to stay within the country. Many action items, like calling Congress or sharing personal stories, are similar things one can do if seeking ways to help immigrant children and undocumented youth throughout the country.   Within Microsoft, the company's Assistant General Counsel Jack Chen offered his support for Ponnada, along with U.S. Rep. Kevin Yoder, (R-Kansas) who met with her in June.  I'm proud to call Sri a Microsoft colleague. Thank you @RepKevinYoder for taking the time to hear our employees stories, and for your commitment to eliminating #percountry limits. #HR392 https://t.co/FlFWbwzGI6 — Jack Chen (@jakchen) June 21, 2018 You can read Ponnada's full post here.  WATCH: 'We're being used': Rapper Vic Mensa pleads for gun control legislation.

          U.S. Coast Guard Medevacs 89 Year Old Passenger From Carnival Vista      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Turks and CaicosThe U.S. Coast Guard medevaced an 89-year-old man suffering from a stroke from a Carnival cruise ship on Monday.

The Carnival Vista was heading from Miami to Ocho Rios, Jamaica, sailing around the north-eastern corner of Cuba, when the Carnival cruise ship contacted the Coast Guard for medical assistance. The Carnival ship had left Miami on Sunday and was sailing near the western waters of the lower Bahamian islands. 

At around 1:30 p.m. on Monday, the Carnival Vista contacted the Coast Guard which reportedly dispatched  a MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter from the Coast Guard station in Clearwater, Florida. The Carnival ship was approximately 138 miles west of Great Inagua, Bahamas.

The man, suffering from chest pains and accompanied by a nurse, was taken to Cheshire Hall Medical Centre on the island of Providenciales in the western Turks and Caicos. He arrived around around 6:45 p.m. at the hospital. His medical condition is currently unknown.

          JOSEPH IN; ROACH HAS BEEN ORDERED TO REST      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

KINGSTON, Jamaica – Young fast bowler, Alzarri Joseph is in the 13-man Test Squad to face Bangladesh in the 2nd Test to start at Sabina Park this Thursday.

Joseph on his return to international cricket was the most successful bowler for the President’s XI side vs Bangladesh with 4 for 53 from 15 overs just under two weeks ago.

Absent from the squad is Kemar Roach who has been ordered to rest following a hamstring strain in the first innings of the Test in Antigua that the WINDIES won by an inning and 219 runs.

The squad reads:

Jason Holder – Captain
Devendra Bishoo
Kraigg Brathwaite
Roston Chase
Miguel Cummins
Shane Dowrich
Shannon Gabriel
Shimron Hetmyer
Alzarri Joseph
Shai Hope
Keemo Paul
Kieran Powell
Devon Smith

The win in the first Test, saw some positive movements in the ICC rankings for several players. Roach, 20th and Brathwaite, 16th are now in the Top 20 in bowling and batting respectively; while Captain Holder moves up two places to 52nd and to 23rd in the bowling. Other players to be tagged in the ranking are Powell up five places to 61st and Cummins, up 12 places to 55th.


          Brooks' Century Leads Windies 'A' Recovery      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A fighting century from West Indies 'A' captain Shamarh Brooks led a West Indies A fightback, but honours were left evenly shared at the end of the opening day of the second four-day "Test" against India yesterday.

Brooks led from the front, stroking an unbeaten 121 as the Windies closed on 301-9 after winning the toss and electing to bat at the Cooper Associates County Ground. His knock was one of the few bright sparks, as no other Windies batsman made 50, and only two made more than 20. Brooks was the mainstay of the innings, having batted for one minute shy of five hours and faced 224 balls. He has so far struck 15 boundaries.

Sharmarh Brooks scored an unbeaten century to lead a West Indies A fightback

With the Windies struggling on 222-8 and in serious danger of being bowled out, the skipper found an unlikely partner in Sherman Lewis.

The two added 70 valuable runs in a ninth-wicket partnership which helped to carry the Windies to relative safety and frustrated the Indian bowlers in the process.

By the time Lewis was dismissed for 18, caught behind off the bowling of Mohammed Siraj, the score had grown to a respectable 292.

Oshane Thomas (2) is the other unbeaten batsman. Earlier, the West Indies had wasted a decent start from John Campbell and Devon Thomas, who added 49 in an opening partnership.

          UK government pauses hostile immigration policies after Windrush      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Home secretary Sajid Javid confirms he has paused programme of data sharing between departments

The government has paused a wide range of hostile environment policies in the wake of the Windrush scandal to prevent more people who have lived in the UK for over 30 years from being “erroneously impacted by compliant environment measures”, the home secretary has revealed.

Officials had already announced that some policies had been suspended in the wake of the of the scandal, but Sajid Javid acknowledged that he had paused a comprehensive programme of “pro-active data sharing” between different government departments in order to prevent those from the Windrush generation being wrongly hit by measures designed to combat illegal immigration.

More than half of the passengers on the Empire Windrush had left homes in Jamaica. According to the official passenger list – held by the National Archives – 541 people gave their last country of residence as Jamaica, out of a total 1,027 onboard.

          Comment on How the Hudson Valley Mall can survive the ‘retail apocalypse’ by JamaicaonHudson      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Well, glory Hallelu...I agree. The Hudson Valley Mall is a property that can, if redeveloped properly, thrive: It's near outdoor recreation sources (i.e. Catskills, Hudson River, local lakes, state parks), in-between two large MSAs (NYC Metro & the Capital District), and has that view. However, it cannot realize its potential if it relies on an old model which has no link to reality--it has to reflect our evolution. Personally, I'm all for an indoor soccer stadium (or year-round ice arena) w/ retail shops and specialty supermarkets. Slap some solar panels on the (living) roof of that 'sucker, "The Mall" could be a real income generator (and pay hommage to Victor Gruen's true vision). P.S. Desperation being the enemy of proper development, I'd avoid placing noisy and polluting/smelly industries in close proximity. Nobody's going to visit a sports complex/aquarium/botanical garden/ice arena if it's in the shadow of a smelting plant (run on fracked gas). The whole "pig-in-a-palor" thing...

          Croacia, el renacimiento de una nación      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
El pequeño Luka Modric, de apenas seis años de edad, se enteraba que su abuelo era asesinado por el ejército yugoslavo-serbio. Era el año 1991, Croacia se independizaba de Yugoslavia, aun así el futbol era de las cosas que estaba en su cabeza.

Las mudanzas eran seguidas, no había tiempo de echar raíces, pero Luka y cientos de niños croatas tenían al balón como aliado para olvidar los bombardeos. No era la infancia que un niño debía vivir.

Eran años raros para jugar futbol; sin embargo, Croacia puso de pie a un equipo nacional y días antes de anunciar su independencia, su selección ya jugaba un partido oficial; se medía a Estados Unidos. En 1992, el equipo fue reconocido por FIFA y por la UEFA.

Vinieron actuaciones dignas, como en el Mundial de 1998. Croacia se presentaba ya como una selección seria. Primera ronda discreta. Ganaba a los representativos de Jamaica y Japón, perdiá con Argentina. En eliminación directa comenzó a llamar la atención.

Primero superó a Rumania y después arrasó con Alemania. En semifinales cayó ante Francia (2-1), pero ya habían hecho historia. En el juego por el tercer lugar dieron cuenta de Holanda y su delantero Davor Suker se proclamó campeón de goleo.

Modric comenzaba a destacar. Jugador de poca talla física lucía por entrega. Quería jugar en el Dínamo de Zagreb, pero fue cedido a un club de Bosnia en el cual debutó a los 16 años. Regresó al Dínamo, después se marchó al Tottenham, para llegar a inmortalizarse en el Real Madrid.

Pero queda el recuerdo del abuelo muerto por la guerra, esa a la cual Luka negaba con el balón, ese que hoy lo tiene en las puertas de la final de una Copa Mundial, que para una joven nación vale oro, quizá tanto como su independencia.

Sixty Places to Get Inexpensive Noontime Eats by Mercury Staff

SW 9th & Washington, 5226 SE 26th, 10100 SW Park
If you happen to live or work downtown, and can avoid alpha male drivers who don’t care about pedestrians, and work in a swank private office, or just give no fucks what anyone sees you shove in your face hole, I highly recommend this food cart and especially the Loco Moco (hamburger, fried egg, and brown gravy on white rice, $9.50), served with thick and creamy macaroni salad and the stickiest of sticky rice (to go with your rice dish). Note: There is no outdoor seating, so I ate mine in the car, like a savage.

Alberta Market

909 NE Alberta
This little market on the corner of Northeast Alberta and 9th is famous for two things: fried chicken wings and jojos. You’ll smell the chicken from a block away; and the wings, sizzling inside the luminescent case, will be the first thing you see when you walk in the door. For the money, nothing in town beats Alberta Market’s wings. You can order as few as three for $3.50, or you could feed your whole family for under 10 bucks (if you’re not particularly concerned about your family’s nutrition). Your best bet is four wings and jojos for $5, with a side of ranch. You’ll want to grab a pounder of Sprite ($1.49) to wash it all down with. Get there early in the day if you want fresh jojos, because if they haven’t already sold out by late afternoon, they’ll have lost their crispiness. Also keep in mind that there isn’t any seating, so prepare to eat in your car or sit out on the curb. Either way, don’t forget to take a lot of napkins. This stuff is greasy.

An Xuyen Bakery

5345 SE Foster
I have been going to An Xuyen a couple of times a month for the better part of a decade and love it every time. I always get the veggie meat, which is a glutinous protein doused with a sweet-ish savory sauce, topped with the standard banh mi toppings of carrots, cilantro, jalapeños, and a healthy spread of mayo. Sometimes they run out of the veggie meat around lunchtime so I go early, which works great, because a spicy sando and an iced coffee for $5 at 10 am will guarantee an A+ Sunday. Also, the other morning I went there for breakfast treats and purchased FOUR GOURMET, HOMEMADE pastries for SEVEN DOLLARS AND FIFTY CENTS. TOTAL! There are some places in town where you’re lucky to get two hard vegan donuts for that price. So please, by all means go, but don’t start going before me and making them run out of the veggie meat even earlier. ELINOR JONES Tues-Sat 7 am-6 pm; Sun 7 am-3 pm

Baby Doll Pizza

2835 SE Stark
Tucked directly between Southeast 28th and 29th on Stark, Baby Doll Pizza stands and delivers what we’ve all come to love about Portland-style New York-style pizza—big, floppy, yet crispy slices on silver pans tended by hipsters with sleeve tattoos on the verge of heat stroke from running around making the city’s finest pizza. The menu includes gluten free and vegan options, but I order the meat slice ($3.75) topped with locally sourced pepperoni, perfectly seasoned sausage, basil, and the ooey-gooeyiest of mozzarella, because I know how to enjoy my life. Since I’m a pig, I also snag two garlic knots (75 cents each) and half a Greek salad ($5)—a meal easily shared by two, eaten by one for $10.25.

Basilisk

820 NE 27th
There aren’t a ton of perfect things in this world, but the fried chicken sandwich ($9) at Basilisk is one of them. Nestled inside the Zipper food hall on Northeast Sandy, the space is casual and inviting, with plenty of room to sit—or take your plunder of poultry to the cafeteria room next door, or, better yet, sit outside. If you go later in the day, maybe grab a whiskey cocktail or a beer at the Zipper’s bar, Paydirt, which opens at 3 pm. But whatever you do, get that chicken. A thick wodge of unbelievably tender bird, coated in crispy-fried goodness, stuffed between two pillow-soft buns and accompanied by pickles, slaw, and a gently tangy sauce, Basilisk’s chicken sandwich is so precariously high that it arrives with a knife stabbed through the middle. There’s a spicy, Nashville-style option for daredevils ($8); get a side of their yummy mac salad ($3) and you’ll be able to skip dinner. NED LANNAMANN Daily 11 am-10 pm

Beeswing

4318 NE Cully
Beeswing’s menu willfully straddles breakfast and lunch, with buttermilk biscuits ($2.50) coexisting alongside breakfast enchiladas ($11) and meatloaf sandwiches ($11). But that’s what makes it great! My advice: Pick something sweet from the wide variety of baked goods and order the fresh farm salad, whose ingredients change with the seasons ($10). The salad’s summertime incarnation features soft-boiled egg, avocado, clementine, super thin banana chips, succulent pork belly, and parmesan tossed into arugula—it sounds like a weird medley of flavors, but it’s surprisingly delicious. Eat it outside on one of the city’s pleasantest patios to complete your adorably twee Beeswing experience. CIARA DOLAN Mon & Tues 8 am-3 pm, Wed-Sun 8 am-9 pm

Bing Mi!

SW 9th & Alder, NE 60th & Halsey
Hailing from the streets of Northern China, jian bing is Asia’s breakfasty answer to the Crunchwrap Supreme—a savory crepe stuffed with scrambled egg, crunchy wonton-style crackers, black bean paste, cilantro, chives, and pickled veggies. After experimenting, here’s my preferred customization of the $6 basic bing: choose the spiciest option—it’s a chili-laced kick that burns without demolishing—add the plum sauce, which brings an umami-sweet balance to the savory ingredients, and definitely invest in extra wonton crackers (50 cents), which kick up the texture at the bottom of the bing where things tend to get soggy. Sausage ($1) is pleasant, but only necessary if you’re super hungry. ANDREA DAMEWOOD SW 9th & Alder: Mon-Fri 7:30 am-3 pm, Sat 11 am-4 pm, NE 60th & Halsey: Tues-Sun noon-8 pm

Best Baguette

8308 SE Powell
Best Baguette is where I go if it’s the wrong time of day for An Xuyen or if I’m heading east on Powell. Their banh mi is just a little too big, which maybe is not a deterrent for most people. And there’s a drive-through, which more non-fast food places really should offer. My go-tos at Best Baguette are the sweet chili chicken banh mi that’s more sweet than chili, and from the European sandwich menu, the egg and cheese on a croissant that is a protein-packed gut bomb. All of the sandos at Best Baguette are less than $5. If you go on a weekend, it’s filled with families gossiping in Vietnamese and you can pretend they’re talking about you and feel popular.

Bless Your Heart Burgers

126 SW 2nd (Inside Pine Street Market)
Inspired by the downhome goodness of the Carolinas, chefs Drew Sprouse and John Gorman’s burger joint magically transports the flavors of the South into a much more politically comfortable atmosphere. Perfectly seared and juicy beef from the Northwest is wedged between a soft Martin’s potato roll, and can be dressed with a regular array of condiments. OR! You can order in the appropriate manner and get it “Carolina-style” with chili, onions, cole slaw, yellow mustard, homemade pickles, and American cheese for the criminally low price of $6.95. Slip in some fries (small $2.50)—or perhaps the “Down n Dirty” version with griddled onions, peppers, mushrooms, beer cheese sauce, ranch, and barbecue spice ($5.50), though that’s between you and your god—and you’ve got an affordable meal that will remind you of back home, even if you’ve never been there. WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY Daily 11 am-9 pm

Boke Dokie

3646 SE Hawthorne
A little fried chicken (and tofu) sandwich shop from the minds behind Boke Bowl, Boke Dokie recently hopped from its downtown spot to a cute, red window inside Rachel’s Ginger Beer. Boke Dokie’s taste profile asks you to marry sweet and salty, at all times. Their Brussels Sprout Salad ($6) contains mango, which I disliked here (for the first time ever!). I was not a fan of the flavor mix, which was also a problem with their tiny Chicken Sandwich ($7). Somehow the fried chicken was bland while the Asian slaw topping was too sweet. I’m not opposed to salty and sweet, but this was a bad romance. SUZETTE SMITH Sun-Thurs 11 am-10 pm, Fri & Sat 11 am-11 pm

Brunch Box

620 SW 9th 
It’s a little hole-in-the-wall with super limited seating and overly loud pop music, but Brunch Box is a great carry-out lunch if you’re obsessed with breakfast like I am. Their breakfast sandwiches range from $6 to $9.50 on whatever bread you like, but if you pick anything other than the magnificent biscuit, you’re making a mistake. It’s the perfect blend of buttery and crumbly, and pairs perfectly with the greasy breakfast sausage, fried egg, and cheese for a quintessential morning sandwich. Burgers are similarly inexpensive, and everything is easy to customize and comes out fast. To really indulge, throw in a milkshake for $3.75. KELLY KENOYER Daily 8 am-10 pm 

Bunk Downtown

211 SW 6th
Portland’s various Bunk Sandwiches spots have all kinds of fancy-pants sandwiches, and because not everything in this world has been irredeemably corrupted, most of ’em hover right around that sweet $10 price point. But EVEN CHEAPER is their simplest, most perfect offering: The Egg & Cheese on a Hard Roll is exactly what it sounds like—a fried egg, some melty cheese, a toasted poppy-seed roll—and it costs a mere $5. Sure, these things work great for breakfast (they’re best when the yolk is runny), but I grab them for lunch, squeezing into Bunk’s hole-in-the-wall location downtown. I also drop an extra buck to get some avocado on there, because fuckin’ obviously. ERIK HENRIKSEN Mon-Fri 8 am-3 pm, Sat & Sun 9 am-3 pm

Checkerboard Pizza

126 SW 2nd (inside Pine Street Market)
You’re in the heart of downtown and you’ve only got 15 spare minutes to gulp down a lunch. (In other words, just a typical workday at the Portland Mercury.) Checkerboard Pizza will fire up a substantial slice for you in a matter of minutes. Don’t turn your nose up at plain ol’ cheese ($3/slice), which is elegant in its simplicity, but if you must go to fancy-land, their specialty pies ($4/slice) won’t disappoint; a recent visit found a wonderfully spicy concoction with Alps soppresatta, salami, and mozzarella, and an intriguingly lemony slice with asparagus, ricotta, red onion, and mint. Checkerboard’s thin slices veer toward the crusty side, and can sometimes turn crackly after reheating, but if the stars align, one or two perfectly chewable slices is just what you need to get through the rest of the day. NL Sun-Thurs 11 am-9 pm, Fri & Sat 11 am-10 pm

Chez Dodo

427 SW Stark
One comes to the Chez Dodo food cart for Shyamosas ($5-6). I’ve gobbled down a big mound of their spicy, oily Mine Frire yakisoba noodles ($7-12) many times too. Whatever you order from Chez Dodo is guaranteed to fill you up, but those Shyamosas—fried pastries the size of two fists, full of spiced potatoes, vegetables, and meat—are the best thing on the menu. I often eat vegan at this cart because, quite frankly, I think the vegan Shyamosas (filled with lentil fritters, eggplant, mushrooms, and tofu) have a better spice game. They never believe that I can handle the hotness. Respect me, Chez Dodo! One day, you will. SS Mon-Fri 11 am-8 pm

ChickPeaDX

2707 NE Sandy
When ChickPeaDX—the popular and awkwardly named food cart—evolved three years ago into a brick-and-mortar micro-restaurant in the Zipper building, owner Yair Maidan expanded his menu just enough to justify the move, while staying true to what won the restaurant all of its well-deserved accolades. While the falafel, made fresh from Washington chickpeas, remains as mouth-wateringly crisp as ever, they’ve recently switched to a different supplier for their pita bread, and this is where they’ve made the first misstep. The falafel pita wrap ($9.50)—packed with cabbage slaw, carrot ribbons, fried eggplant, tomato-cucumber salad, and generous amounts of falafel—came apart upon my very first bite, and only got worse from there. The pita, which I was informed is now vegan, was dry and flavorless, and couldn’t hold its own against the abundant fillings. Go with the salad bowl or rice bowl (both $10.50), which have all the same ingredients as the wrap, but won’t leave you with falafel all over your shirt. SEH Tues-Sun 11 am-9 pm

Du’s Grill

5365 NE Sandy
Take notice: this little Rose City Park hole-in-the-wall has the good shit. The plates ($9-$11.50) are huge, fast, and fucking delicious. Primary offerings are teriyaki plate lunch—choose chicken, pork, beef, or some combo of the three—and you get a pile of protein, a steamy football-sized quenelle of rice, and a refreshing iceberg salad with creamy poppy-seed dressing. The chicken ($9.75) is my favorite; you get about two or three juicy thighs’ worth, with smoky-charred edges and sauced in sweet-sticky-garlicky teriyaki. There’s a tofu bowl or yakisoba noodles for the vegetarians in your party, and a side of tangy, probiotic kimchi ($3.50) is big enough to take home for later. HEATHER ARNDT ANDERSON Mon-Fri 11 am-8:45 pm

East Glisan Pizza Lounge

8001 NE Glisan
This lounge is a little dark, a little grungy, and very tasty. It feels way more like a bar than a pizzeria, but the ’za is to die for. I grabbed a 12-inch margherita pizza for $11, and it was plenty to feed me and a ravenous teenager. The key to a good margherita is high quality, fresh ingredients, and East Glisan has it down. Beautiful, chewy mozzarella with slightly tangy, freshly made tomato sauce, and whole fresh basil leaves to top it off. I’d eat that any day of the week. A solid tap list of local brews is the perfect touch, because what goes together better than beer and pizza? KK Daily 4 pm-midnight

Edelweiss Sausage & Delicatessen

3119 SE 12th
Condor Airlines offers direct flights from PDX to Frankfurt during the summer, but for a much more affordable dose of Deutschland, go to Edelweiss, the deli and specialty foods store that’s been an enclave of all things German and edible for nearly 40 years. The place is a wünder-land of weird and delicious-looking things, from candies with unpronounceable names to mayonnaise that comes out of a toothpaste tube, and there’s a wraparound deli with all kinds of meats stacked high (take a number!). There’s also counter in the corner offering simple sandwiches, sausages, and schnitzel, with three fantastic German biers on tap. Get a juicy, pale weisswurst made with pork and lemon ($5.25), or a kickass ham and Swiss on dark rye bread ($7) with a side of their haus potato salad ($3.50), served hot and mushy like mashed potatoes. Grab a seat in the tiny luncheonette and feel like you’re half a world away. NL Mon-Sat 9 am-6 pm

Enat Kitchen

300 N Killingsworth
While perhaps not as cheap as many of the cheap eats on this list, Enat Kitchen likely offers one of the most rewarding and satisfying meals for the money. Though they’ve discontinued their lunch buffet, Enat offers reasonably priced lunch or dinner entrees, from $9.99 to $14.99, with choices of chicken, beef, lamb, fish, or veggies. My date and I ordered the beef key wot—small chunks of tender beef, marinated in spicy berbere sauce—and the veggie combo, which comes with five veggie sides, all of which tasted fresh and uniquely spiced. A frequent complaint of some Ethiopian restaurants is when I need to request (and pay for) additional injera; not so with Enat, who offered so much that neither of us could finish what we started. Enat has a cozy vibe inside, which is a good thing, because service, though friendly, was a little on the cozy side of prompt. SEH Mon-Sat 11:30 am-9 pm

Frank’s Noodle House

822 NE Broadway
Located in an old Craftsman right next to the Crown Memorial Cremation and Burial Center, Frank’s Noodle House is endorsed by celebrity chef Guy Fieri (who once stopped there with his show Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and even signed the wall), which should be enough reason to visit. If it’s not—shame on you—go because the restaurant’s lunch special is “lights-out delicious,” as modern cuisine’s frosted-tipped hero would say. After enjoying complimentary hot and sour or egg flower soup, along with kimchi and pickled daikon (for dine-in customers only), order Frank’s signature stir-fried, hand-pulled noodles (or else just GTFO)—the dish can be made vegetarian with thin-sliced bell peppers, onions, and cabbage, or elevated with a variety of meat options (my favorite is pork belly, $7.95). With its lovely porch, customizable spiciness levels, dynamite prices, and super-fast service, Frank’s Noodle House is the closest thing Portland’s got to Flavortown.

Gastro Mania Deli

1986 NW Pettygrove 
Gastro Mania packs a lot into a small space under a brick building in Slabtown: namely a lot of octopi. The eight-legged sea critter is the mascot and logo of this little restaurant and it’s a great spot for Mediterranean seafood at a low price—you can get a massive plate with pita, salad, and meat or fish on rice for just $10. And they don’t skimp on the fish—you get several big, lightly fried fillets when you order the salmon. Ample outdoor seating makes it a great spot for summer.

Grant’s Philly Cheesesteaks

1203 NW 23rd, 15350 NE Sandy
Philly cheesesteaks are something I am morally opposed to. But, since I was assigned to eat one for this blurb, I wound up ordering one at Grant’s and was... not disappointed. I recommend “the Portland” half sandwich ($7.75), which switches the classic Philly provolone with Tillamook cheddar. I added mushrooms ($1.50) and chose sweet (over spicy) peppers. It was juicy and filling—I’d stay away from ordering a whole sandwich unless you’re able to immediately take a nap. If you’re feeling weird, get “the Whiz,” a normal cheesesteak doused in Cheez Whiz. I don’t recommend watching someone eat the Whiz. Especially if it’s the kid sitting next to me who licked his sandwich before eating it. Licked.

Güero

200 NE 28th
Sometimes I dream about Güero. It’s Portland’s ultimate torta hub—they offer seven different sandwich options, but my favorite is the vegetarian Refrito ($11), which smooshes refried beans, pickled onions, avocado, roasted serrano peppers, poblano crema, and chile-lime mayo between a fluffy toasted telera roll. I can’t visit without also getting a side of the Esquites ($3), corn sautéed with chile garlic and served with aioli, cotija cheese, lime, and ground ancho chile. It’s hot, spicy, creamy, and citrusy—basically all of the holiest flavors contained in one paper cup. Smother everything with Güero’s impossibly perfect homemade carrot-habanero hot sauce and you’ll be crying salty little tears of joy. (Bonus: They sell jars of the sauce to-go, so you can also smother everything in your fridge with it.) CD Daily 11 am-10 pm

Hat Yai

1605 NE Killingsworth
I think the argument can be made that fried chicken, in all its forms (nugget, strip, on-the-bone, etc.) is the best food in the world. Every country has a version, and each one is finger-lickin’ good. And Earl Ninsom’s perfect bird at Hat Yai could put anything the Colonel ever made to shame. This fast-casual concept from the owner of Langbaan and co-owner Alan Akwai serves Southern Thai style fried chicken, delectable curries, chewy fried roti breads, and some seriously spicy salads. At lunch, $9 will get you a fried thigh and drumstick with a mound of sticky rice, or a curry of braised chicken thigh with roti to sop it all up. You’ll secretly want to order both, but remember you can go back the next day. AD Sun-Thurs 11:30 am-9 pm, Fri & Sat 11:30 am-10 pm

Ha VL

2738 SE 82nd, Suite 102
Ha VL is a small shop located in a teensy tiny strip mall off Southeast 82nd that you’ll miss at least once while looking for it. That said, this place is hardly an unknown hole-in-the-wall—lots has been written about its ridiculously delicious Vietnamese noodle soups—and has gotten national attention from far fancier food writers than me. But here I am as well to tell you: YUM. Ha VL offers two soups daily, and while it still has sandwiches on their menu, they also have many signs up telling you that sandwiches are no longer available. But who cares? Soup is the name of the game. I like chicken curry Wednesdays but really want to get there sometime for snail Thursdays. (SNAIL!) Lunch costs $10, but an extra 50 cents to-go, so I’d recommend picking up your favorite free weekly newspaper and tucking in there among foodie tourists and Southeast Asian immigrants. EJ Wed-Mon, 8 am-4 pm

Huong’s Vietnamese Food

546 SW 10th
Huong’s tofu banh mi sandwich ($5) is hands down the best lunchtime deal in town. As someone who usually opts for a traditional grilled pork banh mi, Huong’s vegetarian take on the sandwich hit me like foot-long freight train the first time I ventured outside my comfort zone. The lemongrass tofu is pulled, tossed in a spicy sriracha sauce, and generously distributed along the base of the baguette, with a sprinkling of diced peanuts mixed in to provide additional flavor and texture in every bite. The crackling and crisp baguette is topped off with shredded pickled carrot, and thick slabs of tomato, cucumber, and jalapeño, leaving you with a fresh and filling lunchtime meal that’s easy to devour while on the go.

Jamaican Homestyle Cuisine

441 N Killingsworth
Immediately recognizable for the pungent clouds of smoke wafting from the barrel smoker outside, Jamaican Homestyle Cuisine has carved a respectable niche for itself on North Killingsworth, near PCC’s Cascade campus. The décor, with Jamaican flags and portraits of Bob Marley on the walls, falls somewhere between authentic Jamaican decoration and a college student’s impression of authentic Jamaican decoration, but Homestyle’s jerk sauce—smoky, spicy, and a touch sweet—leaves no room for doubt. Menu options include pricier dishes like oxtail and curry goat, but if you’re a broke-ass college student, try the jerk meal ($10/small): chicken leg quarter, sides of rice and beans, and steamed cabbage. The rice and beans and cabbage are nothing spectacular, but you’ll want something to relieve some of the heat from the chicken, especially if you add Grace Hot Pepper sauce (which you absolutely should).

Kenny’s Noodle House

8305 SE Powell
Kenny’s Noodle House is a legit choice for Cantonese cuisine with no MSG. When I arrive, most tables are populated by Chinese people speaking their native tongue, which is always a good sign. Service is polite and friendly, and the prices are downright cheap—especially relative to the quality of the food, which is mostly meat dumplings, noodles, and soup. Maybe not the most exciting, but it keeps things simple. I order fish ball and fish fillet with lai fun noodles ($7.15), the second most expensive dish on the menu. Hot tea is complimentary and served in plastic water cups. So, you can either pay $1.80 for ice tea, or pour a little of your water into the free tea you already have.

Kim Jong Smokehouse

413 NW 21st, 126 SW 2nd
Picture Southern-style barbecue merged with Korean street food, and you’ve got the odd, but delicious verve of Kim Jong Smokehouse, which produces one of my fave go-to inexpensive lunches in town. Check out these ingredients: scorched rice, sweet potato noodles, and season vegetables topped with a runny egg ($9), and topped again, if you like, with smoked salmon, mushroom, pulled pork, chicken (an extra $4), or short rib ($5) if you’ve got a little extra change in your pocket. Personally I forgo the toppings, because when mixed together and devoured with chopsticks, this is a bowl of heaven that can easily last for two meals. That is, if one possesses an ounce of self-control (which I do not). WSH Sun-Thurs 11 am-9 pm, Fri & Sat 11 am-10 pm

La Piñata Takos

432 SW 3rd
For years, I’ve studiously endeavored to discover what makes the veggie burrito from La Piñata Takos INCREDIBLY, VASTLY SUPERIOR TO ALL OTHER BURRITOS. Thus far, my thorough experiments have led to this hypothesis: Uh, it’s the cheese, maybe, I think? Unlike other places that just cram some shredded cheese in the mix and call it good, the friendly heroes at Piñata melt theirs between the layers of the tortilla—where it complements perfect proportions of beans, tomatoes, guac, sour cream, and lettuce. (Basic ingredients, yes, but there’s some straight-up alchemy going on here.) It’s hefty and filling—a fantastic deal for $6.50—and, if you load it up with their green sauce, has just the right amount of kick. But more research is needed, so goodbye, I’m going to go get another one. EH Mon-Thurs 11 am-4 pm, Fri-Sat 11 am-3 am

Laurelhurst Market

3155 E Burnside
Portland has some good sandwiches, sure, but let’s be real: In this city, a deli is where you go to play lottery, not get a good meal. Which is why the gourmet sandwiches that steakhouse Laurelhurst Market whips up during the daylight hours are so dang special—these are carefully crafted vessels of meat and gluten, made with top-notch ingredients and flavors all working in concert. At $10.95 a pop, these ain’t Subway six-inches—and thank god. You can’t go wrong with the corned beef or pastrami options, the ever-changing daily special, or my standby, ham and salami with pepperoncini, oil, and vinegar. If the sumptuous slabs of meat in the deli case aren’t your thing, they always have a vegetarian option, too. Get it to go, or chow it down in Laurelhurst’s airy restaurant space, with the bustle of the kitchen in the background. NL Lunch hours daily 11 am-5 pm

Lauretta Jean’s

3402 SE Division, SW 6th & Pine
Pies: They’re not just for dessert! At least not at Lauretta Jean’s. The cozy, colorful pie shop offers both savory and sweet slices for your lunchtime pie fix. I liked the fluffy and crisp Ham, Gruyere, and Leek Quiche ($5.75) paired with a tart slice of Strawberry Rhubarb Pie ($5). But I wouldn’t be mad if you went for a slice of Key Lime Pie ($5). Or just had two slices of sweet pie for lunch because you are a damn adult and are living your most authentic life. Not into triangle-shaped food? Try the Baker’s Salad ($9)—it’s both delicious and astoundingly large. AZ Sun-Thurs 8 am-10 pm, Fri & Sat 8 am-11pm

Los Gorditos

1212 SE Division, 3420 SE 50th, 11155 NE Halsey, 922 NW Davis, 902 N Killingsworth, 4937 SE Division
I never thought I would be advocating for trash lunch, but in the case of Los Gorditos, the garbage burrito is the way to go. The legs of the burrito are the taqueria’s traditional chicken, beef, and pork, and it’s filled out with beans, rice, cheese, sour cream, two kinds of salsa, onion, and cilantro. The Garbage Burrito is like a half-dozen street tacos stuffed into one extra large flour tortilla and at $9.50, it’s a steal. Not into carnivorous feasts? Fear not! Gorditos is well respected for their vegetarian and vegan menus—yes, that’s a full menu for each, not just one or two dishes without meat. The majority of menu items is less than $10, and the lower Division location adjoins Apex, a beer bar that’s home to one of Portland’s many epic patios. Gorditos will even deliver your burrito next door so you can make it a three-IPA lunch—just be sure to let them know where you’re sitting! BRI BREY Daily 9 am-9 pm

Lúc Lác

835 SW 2nd
Popular Vietnamese spot Lúc Lác always has a line these days. Once you’re in that line, though, it moves along pretty swiftly—providing there aren’t tourists (there always are) acclimating to Lúc Lác’s clever counter service flow of ordering, and having your meal served after you sit. Respect the flow! Know what you want! Lúc Lác’s Vermicelli Rice Noodles ($8-12) are perfect for avoiding that post-lunch heaviness. Choose a grilled item of your choice (it’s weirdly satisfying to have just crispy rolls) to sit atop a bed of rice noodles, spicy vinaigrette dressed slaw of cabbage, peanuts, pickled carrots, and other crunchy delights. For colder, rainy days, Lúc Lác serves an excellent pho ($9-11). Their vegetarian pho contains an especially resplendent amount of veggies.

Matt’s BBQ

4233 N Mississippi
Matt’s BBQ runs the gamut of prices. An ambitious carnivore could spend more than 20 bucks on a single meal, but you don’t need a Scrooge McDuck-sized budget to enjoy this food cart. The pulled pork sandwich ($8) is a solid cheap lunch option nestled within a menu of smoky decadence. Matt’s nails the pulled pork. It’s juicy but not sodden or souplike, yet it still has that fall-apart-in-your-mouth quality that pulled pork needs. It’s topped with pickled veggies to give the meat some contrast, and served on a bun that withstands the moisture while still being the kind of thing you can indecorously stuff into your face like a meat-craving barbarian on a budget.

Mekong Bistro

8200 NE Siskyou
Mekong Bistro bills itself as the first (only?) Cambodian restaurant in Portland, located next to a beauty school in a strip mall on a particularly unattractive part of Northeast 82nd. You’re here for their soups, broadly influenced by the convergence of Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia along the banks of the Mekong River. The Kao-Pune soup is a shockingly low $8.75, a price increase of just 75 cents from when it was featured in the New York Times in 2014. It’s a hulking bowl of red curry with vermicelli noodles, topped with ground pork and vegetables. There’s a pork blood cake and kefir leaves, and a hearty helping of chilis. If you are a fan of Asian soups, or good deals, you can’t miss this one. AD Sun-Thurs 11 am-midnight, Fri & Sat 11 am-2 am

Nong’s Khao Man Gai

With Nong Poonsukwattana’s trademark sauce now readily available in bottled form, I can’t be the only one who’s attempted to replicate her deceptively simple take on chicken and rice in the confines of my own kitchen. While my meal prep session wasn’t a complete disaster, the experiment left me with even more respect for the empire Nong has created serving up her signature Khao Man Gai ($11) to hungry locals and tourists alike. The strips of poached free-range chicken are always tender and moist, layered atop a hearty scoop of jasmine rice that’s been simmering in the flavorful stock, all packaged up neatly with a side of the one-of-a-kind dipping sauce, as well as a light chicken soup that’s perfect for warming your belly on a rainy day.

Olympia Provisions Public House

3384 SE Division
With the recent redesign of hot dog joint OP Wurst into Olympia Provisions Public House, the crowded restaurant row of Southeast Division now has a wonderfully German-feeling (and kid-friendy) biergarten. For a quick and satisfying lunch, get a pale-colored bratwurst ($9), cooked so it snaps when you bite into it, and served with sauerkraut and the right kind of mustard. The cheeseburger ($9), served on a sesame-seed bun and nearly liquefied American cheese, is also a solid choice. Wash them down a half-liter of delicious, locally made beer from Rosenstadt ($5-7), who are making damned authentic German style brews—their Kölsch is crisp and refreshing, their dunkel is roasty and full of flavor, and their radler combines their thirst-slaking weissbier with tart lemon soda.

Otto’s Sausage Kitchen

4138 SE Woodstock
The Woodstock neighborhood, if you didn’t know, is cute as hell. And it also has the pleasure of being home to one of the best, classic German-style delis in all of Portland, Otto’s Sausage Kitchen. Slip inside to drool over the cases of fresh meats to take home for dinner, or for a quick, inexpensive bite, step outside where employees are grilling up savory old-fashioned wieners, chicken or beer sausages, and my favorite, the pork link ($5) on a soft, flavorful bun. Dress it appropriately (with Coney Island-style mustard, diced onions, and relish), take a bite, and feel the satisfying snap of the casing breaking between your teeth, and the smokiness of the mouth-watering pork rising up into your grateful nostrils. I’m sharing too much information, I know. But it’s that good. WSH Mon-Sat 9:30 am-6 pm, Sun 11 am-5 pm

Pho Oregon

2518 NE 82nd
As far as I’m concerned, this is the best pho in town. The huge banquet hall can fill up during weekend hours, but if you go for an early lunch on a weekday, it’s likely to be you and a few older Vietnamese guys, slurping up vermicelli noodles and rare steak slices that cook in the rich five-spice and anise-tinged broth. My order is a small No. 2, with noodles, round steak, flank, fatty brisket, tendon, and tripe for $9.95. If that’s too much adventure meat, there’s all manner of combo options. A small is still huge, both in size and flavor, but the gargantuan large bowls top out at no more than $10.95. If you haven’t had Pho Oregon, you haven’t had Portland pho. AD Daily 9 am-8:30 pm

Pine State Biscuits

2204 NE Alberta, 1100 SE Division Suite 100, 125 NE Schuyler
In a city that’s overflowing with restaurants, waiting longer than 10 minutes for a table in Portland has always felt unnecessary—unless that line’s for Pine State Biscuits. Pine State has delivered consistently delectable biscuit sandwiches since a trio of North Carolinians opened the shop in 2006. If it’s your first time at Pine State, I’d suggest going with their classic: The Reggie ($9). Imagine a pile of fried chicken, bacon, cheese, and gravy lovingly stacked between two flaky biscuits. And then imagine that all mushed up in your mouth. Want that in real life? Get your butt to Pine State Biscuits and stand in line (hint: bring a crossword to do instead of staring at the wait staff and sighing dramatically). It’s worth the wait. AZ Daily 7 am-3 pm

Pizza Jerk

5028 NE 42nd, 621 SE Morrison
Pizza Jerk is a traditional family pizza parlor that serves Connecticut-style pies and slices. The original location on Northeast 42nd looks like it got sucked up out of the East Coast in a Wizard of Oz tornado and flung to the opposite side of the country—it’s got an old-school vibe you don’t often find in these parts, with red-and-white checkered tablecloths, booths, and stained-glass light fixtures. For lunch, Pizza Jerk offers $10 sandwich specials for meatball, chicken, or eggplant parmesans, along with a few slice specials: either two slices and a soda for $7, two slices of Lydia (their veggie option with spinach, mushrooms, and onion) and a PBR for $10, or one slice, a salad, and a soda for $9.

Pollo Norte’s succulent rotisserie chicken is outstanding on its own ($9/quarter chicken), but for a buck more you can have it in a bowl ($10) with rice, black or pinto beans, and other flavorful stuff depending on your mood (vegetarians even have their own option). For another buck you can add tortillas, avocado, extra chicken, or those dank potatoes that have been soaking up schmaltz as they roast, getting all sticky and moreish. If you’re really watching your budget, you can always opt for a bowl of beans ($5) and tortillas (three for $1). HAA Daily noon-9 pm

Potato Champion

1207 SE Hawthorne
What’s better than the Canadian classic of cheese curds, gravy, and fries when you’re stumbling around drunk at 1 am? Literally nothing: It’s the best drunk food imaginable. And Potato Champion has it DOWN. A medium sized portion runs for $8.25 and it’s plenty for a ravenous drunk, and the large portion for $11 is great for sharing. I suggest the satay poutine—it comes with a house-made Thai peanut sauce drizzled over your french fries. And if your friends are picky, they have many other great food carts to choose from. Everyone can come back together in the spacious seating area to enjoy their various crepes, noodles, pizza, and poutine. KK Sun-Thurs 11 am-1 am, Fri-Sat 11 am-3 am

Que Bolá?

Que Bolá? (Cuban for “what’s up?”) is one of the crown jewels of the Portland Mercado food cart pod, and it’s true, there are many dishes to enjoy: Picadillo Cubano (Cuban beef hash simmered in tomato sauce, $9), Papas Bravas (spiced Yukon Gold potatoes with chorizo, $9), and Pan con Bistec (grilled steak sandwich, $8). But then there’s God’s favorite sandwich, the Cubano ($8), which features island-style roasted pork, ham, pickles, mustard, and Swiss cheese on a grilled hoagie roll—and time comes to a stop when you’re eating it. The pork is tender and flavorful, the pickles and mustard are its best friends, and ohhhh that melted Swiss. If there is a better sandwich in the world, I’ll be happy to give it a try—but I won’t hold my breath. WSH Daily 11 am-8 pm

Reel M’Inn

One of the last remnants of Old Portland along the shiny new stretch of Southeast Division, Reel M’Inn is the neighborhood dive bar that your favorite dive bar is probably based on. Along with healthy pours, the bar’s known for perfecting one classic pairing: fried chicken and jojos. I suggest the Two Piece Meal ($9), which comes with one chicken breast and a choice of a leg or wings, and four jojos. The chicken hits a magical balance of tender and crispy, and comes with tasty sauces to dip into (hello, honey mustard). And the jojos? Perfection. These delicacies are made to order behind the bar, which can take around 30 minutes—so grab a drink while you wait. Patience is part of the journey. AZ Mon-Sat 10 am-2:30 am, Sun 10 am-1 am

Richi’s Modern Japanese Cuisine, situated in the Southwest 3rd food cart pod, boasts “a new approach to healthy Japanese comfort food.” Among their many vegan options and alongside some “meat-friendly” versions, Mayumi and Ichiro Sato’s slurp-worthy vegan ramen ($8) is made with a curry-style spice blend, seaweed broth, pickled daikon radish, mixed greens and cilantro—it’s more affordable than the $12 bowls at Marukin and Afuri just a few blocks down. Plus they’re open late. Also try the cart’s really tasty salad bowls like the Hearty Veggie East ($5.50 small/$7 regular), which is made with kale that’s thoroughly massaged in their zesty signature sauce, brown rice, and quinoa, avocado, edamame beans, tomatoes, and sesame seeds.

This newish location is the younger cousin of the world famous Ha VL. It follows their model of offering two soups daily in the $10-11 range. “That seems like a lot for soup, Elinor,” you say. “Soup is mostly water,” you say. No, it’s not!! It’s some intricately flavored combinations of stuff that you and I probably wouldn’t recognize at Fubonn and it’s served in a gigantic bowl that you will loudly slurp while closing your eyes and going “MMMMMMM” and making other diners uncomfortable. And you won’t care. Because that’s some good-ass water. I’ve only ever had the chicken curry because I don’t eat pork or beef, but I don’t know why anyone would eat anything else.

The newly minted brick-and-mortar home of Sammich sits in the cozy corner of the former Knuckle Sandwich, slinging Chicago-style Italian sandwiches, plus a few sides, adult beverages, and Tab cola. The Tre ($11; add zippy/crunchy giardiniera for another buck) is everything you want in a classic cold cuts sandwich: high-quality meats—salami, Mortadella, and prosciutto—cured in-house, sliced onions, and delicately shredded iceberg to provide crispness without getting in the way, and most importantly, soft baguette that will not shred your palate while simultaneously ejecting the sandwich’s fillings. Mayo and mustard provide appropriate lubrication, and plates come buried in generous handfuls of kettle-style potato chips. HAA Daily 11 am-8 pm

Scottie’s Pizza Parlor

A pair of schoolkids swung at a ninja turtle piñata filled with gummy pizzas on my first visit to Scottie’s Pizza Parlor. While it was the shop’s first anniversary, every day at Scottie’s is worth celebrating. They make the best pizza in Portland, offer employees fair wages, and run a pay-it-forward system for patrons to redeem free slices. Try the deservedly raved-about DeFino, a square “grandma style” slice with a limited daily run, smothered in a chunky tomato sauce and topped with juicy mozzarella, fresh basil, and more ($3.75). Even better—you’re almost always guaranteed an edge of crunchy, melted cheese. The white-sauce Bianca ($3.50) is also delicious. Check the chalkboard for cheesy, pun-laced specials like the mushroom-laden ALL CAPS ($4). EMILLY PRADO Daily 11:30 am-9 pm

Spice Kitchen

8245 SE Division
This place is in one of those low-profile buildings around 82nd and Division that you’ll drive by a million times and foolishly not notice. But you should! Because it. Is. Incredible. The cuisine is Halaal Indian-by-way-of-Fiji, and run by an extremely nice immigrant couple. There’s a sign outside that says “lunch 5.99” and that’s what drew me in, but once I saw the buffet, I opted to pay $11.99 instead because I couldn’t just not eat everything I saw. As I write this I am literally licking a to-go container of the coconut spinach soup that smells sweet but has a sneakily spicy kick. The chicken tikka masala, egg curry, and veggie samosas are also on point. Spice Kitchen just opened a couple of months ago so now’s your chance to get in on the ground floor and tell everyone you used to go before it got super crowded. Which I hope it does. Because it’s great. EJ Mon-Thurs 11 am-8 pm, Fri 11 am-9 pm, Sat 4 pm-9 pm

Hanging plants and roasted ducks line the entrance of no-frills Chinese eatery, So Good Taste Noodle House. Located in the heart of a strip mall with other tasty gems, patrons come here for the meat and enjoy an almost identical sprawling menu like that of Chen’s Good Taste in Chinatown. Dive into a heaping bowl of wonton soup with crisp roasted pork for $8.95. If they’ve run out for the day, consider a swap with barbecue pork. Each bowl boasts plentiful servings of bok choy and succulent wontons simmered in a subtle, savory broth. Stir in copious spoonfuls of chili oil for good measure.

Sushi Ichiban

24 NW Broadway
Sushi Ichiban is the best damn sushi restaurant in Portland, and I will hear nothing else. It’s not the kind of place where you’ll find a whole fish spiraled into some kind of sculptural centerpiece or giant slices of rolls slathered in sauce. This is focused, brass-tacks sushi done with precision. Sushi rolls around on a model train, you grab it, and there’s plenty of good stuff for less than three bucks a plate. Inari ($1.50) and salmon nigiri ($2) are nearly always available and delicious. The best deal in the whole place is the tuna roll ($2.50), a satisfying portion of rice and fish that costs less than most tall boys.

Tambayan Restaurant

You may not be as familiar with Filipino cuisine as you’d like, but if you’re ready to give it a go, Tambayan Restaurant is the local place to start. Regulars swear by the tapsilog (sweetened beef, $9.99) and the fried chicken ($9.99), but if you’re looking for the most delicious bang for your buck, go for the adobo ($9.49). This deceptively simple dish of tender pork chunks perfectly marinated in garlic, vinegar, peppers, and soy create a magic elixir that soaks the accompanying rice, and delivers a hearty meal that can easily be stretched into two lunches. On weekdays it opens at noon, but it’s not rude to be waiting at the door. WSH Wed-Thurs noon-6 pm, Fri noon-8 pm, Sat 11 am-8 pm, Sun 11 am-7 pm

Teppanyaki Hut

8145 SE 82nd, 4233 N Mississippi
Fusion foods often get a bad rap, but the nori-wrapped sushi monstrosities at Teppanyaki Hut have justly earned an exception to the rule. Fusion mostly in name, the food cart offers a handful of colossal sushi burrito options, each essentially giant rolls, stuffed to the gills with fresh fish or veggies and decorated with unique additions like crispy onion, masago, and/or tobiko. Mt. Fuji—a great go-to—is an Instagram-worthy technicolor tube filled with a trifecta of seafood (tuna, salmon, crab salad), lettuce, cucumber, avocado, red cabbage, and crispy onions ($9). While the NoPo location has udon, vegan and meat ramen, nigiri, and regular ol’ sushi rolls on the menu, the Southeast location serves up bento boxes and udon for less than $10.

Tierra del Sol

7238 SE Foster
Maize is sacred in Mexico and the crop has been an indigenous culinary and cultural staple for thousands of years. Amalia Vázquez, a Native Oaxaqueña, honors the traditions of her region’s cuisine with an emphasis on organic blue corn products at food cart Tierra del Sol in the colorful Portland Mercado pod. Snag hard-to-find dishes like tetelas (thick masa pockets filled with black beans and topped with crema and queso fresco, $4-6) and mole enchiladas ($9.50), or opt for classics like tacos ($3) and quesadillas ($7-8.50). Expect incredibly flavorful meats, lots of queso Oaxaca (the queen of stretchy quesadilla cheeses), and full bellies. EP Sun-Thurs 10 am-8 pm, Fri & Sat 10 am-9 pm

Tortilleria y Tienda de Leon

16223 NE Glisan
Conveniently located right next door to a Gresham plasma center, the hot deli inside this tienda is well worth the drive. Choose from a wide range of combo plates ($9.99-11.99) or go à la carte with gorditas, burritos, chile relleno, and tons more for just a couple bucks each. I opted for a guisado of cochinita pibil ($9.99): a plate groaning with shredded hunks of red pork; my choice of rice (red) and beans (refried, and appropriately creamy with lard); and house-made tortillas. Vegans and vegetarians aren’t forgotten here, either—there’s a solid menu just for the herbivores, including a succulent nopal salad (pun intended). Folks avoiding carbs can just buy meat by the pound ($9.99-10.99). HAA Mon-Sat 9 am-7 pm, Sun 9 am-6 pm

Whole Bowl

701 SW 6th, 827 SW 2nd, 2590 NE Sandy, 3540 N Vancouver, 4411 SE Hawthorne, SW 9th & Alder, 1100 NW Glisan, 4615 NE Sandy
Like tech bros and shitty life decisions, Whole Bowl locations are EVERYWHERE in Portland, and for good reason: Whole Bowls are fantastic! It’s simple stuff: rice, beans, olives, avocado, cheddar, sour cream, salsa, and curry-esque Tali Sauce. A 12-ounce bowl is $6 and a 16-ounce bowl is $6.50, making them equal parts affordable, delicious, and portable. Please note: The otherwise amazing and wondrous Whole Bowl, by default, comes with cilantro, which I did not mention above, as it is Satan’s cursed weed. Get it without cilantro but with extra Tali Sauce, and soon you, like me, will realize that Whole Bowls have become 75 percent of your diet. EH Hours vary by location; see thewholebowl.com for details, and charitably overlook the unfortunate fact Whole Bowl employees are called “bowlistas”

Wolf & Bear’s Downtown

522 SW 10th
There is no shortage of excellent Middle Eastern food cart options open for lunch in the Southwest Portland block that’s been dubbed “Shawarma Square,” but Wolf & Bear’s unique approach to the popular street food staple manages to satisfy an entirely different craving than a traditional gyro or shawarma sandwich. While the cart’s falafel holds its own in relation to its neighbors, I prefer to order the vegetable-loaded Olea Wrap ($9), which leaves more room for hearty slabs of grilled eggplant, roasted red peppers, grilled red onion, and crisp mixed greens. The warm and fresh pita is coated with thick and creamy labneh and a mouthwatering kalamata tapenade, with gorgonzola crumbles and caramelized walnuts distributed throughout the wrap to ensure an unrivaled explosion of flavor in every bite. CT Daily 11 am-4 pm

XLB

4090 N Williams
XLB easily works if you want to do a feastlike lunch with a large party. But unlike a lot of other restaurants oriented around family-style dining, it scales down. The cold sesame noodles ($11) make for a satisfying single-plate lunch on their own. The thin, flat rice noodles swim in a sesame and mustard sauce, and cucumbers and scallions give the dish the feel of a salad that’s filling without weighing you down. The price tag includes either chicken or tofu, and if you’re attacking it on your own, you’ll likely need a box to go. Also of note are the baozi ($10), steamed buns filled with either mushrooms or pork if you’re looking for something more carb-centric. JS Daily 11 am-3 pm & 5-10 pm

          My Bob Marley musical: Kwame Kwei-Armah on his reggae emancipation      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

One Love tells the story of Bob Marley fleeing Jamaica after an assassination attempt and finding new inspiration in a Britain embracing punk. Our writer meets its creator at last-minute rehearsals

Kwame Kwei-Armah didn’t want to be a Bob Marley fan. For a start, his big sister was into reggae, which put him off. What’s more, as he was growing up in London in the 1970s, white kids were forever coming up and asking “Are you jammin’, mon?” or “Do you want your doughnuts with jammin’?” They’d call him golliwog and sambo, too.

“It used to really freak me out,” he says, on a break between rehearsals of the world’s first Bob Marley musical, One Love, which he has written and directed. “My natural instinct would be: there’s more to me than just whatever you know about black culture. So I disassociated myself from anything Bob-like.”
