Little Big Burger coming to Lake Oswego
Chanticleer Holdings Inc. announced Wednesday that it has signed a lease and received permits to begin the build-out on a Little Big Burger restaurant in Lake Oswego. The restaurant will be located at the Oswego Towne Square shopping center near the New Seasons Market on Monroe Parkway, the company said.
The store is expected to open sometime in the first half of 2018.
"We continue to be very pleased at the progress of our continuing national rollout of our Little Big Burger brand," says Mike Pruitt, Chanticleer's CEO. "Currently we have 12 stores and expect to double that count in 2018, with an additional 8-12 more locations planned."
Little Big Burger has developed almost a cult-like following in the years since Portlander Micah Camden opened his first storefront in the Pearl District, offering cooked-to-order burgers, truffle fries and root beer floats. Chanticleer bought the chain in late 2015.
LO adds faster downtown charging station
The public electric car charging station on A Avenue has received a facelift, courtesy of Tesla Motors and Durst Energy LLC. The station can now charge two cars at once and has been upgraded to Level 2, which allows it to deliver power much faster than its predecessor.
The new unit was jointly donated by the two companies, along with the electrical work to install it. City Electrician Eric Richardson assisted Durst Energy with the project.
The station is located in the same place as the old one: on A Avenue just past the intersection with Second Street, next to the Shell station. It remains free for public use, although city officials are asking drivers to limit their charging time to two hours.
According to Lake Oswego Public Information Officer Diana Smith-Bouwer, electric car owners have already noticed the upgrade, and the new station has been very popular during its first week of operation.
Spring Master Recycler course to begin
Concerned about recycling, natural resources and a healthier environment? The regional Master Recycler course is making its once-a-year visit to Clackamas County this spring, providing a hands-on opportunity to learn about recycling and waste reduction — and use that knowledge to make an immediate positive difference in the community.
Offered only three times a year, the eight-week class meets once a week in the evening and twice on Saturdays for half-day field trips. The spring session will start on Wednesday, March 28, and run for eight consecutive Wednesdays at Clackamas County's Development Services Building, 150 Beavercreek Road in Oregon City.
Participants agree to attend all classes and field trips and, after completing the course, apply their skills by volunteering 30 hours of public outreach to help others conserve natural resources. Master Recyclers work at information booths at community events, provide presentations in the community, work on original projects, and inspire their neighbors and co-workers.
A $50 fee covers course materials. Limited scholarships are available. For more details and to apply, go to http://www.masterrecycler.org. Registration closes March 1 at noon.
