Here are some notes on this and that and the other thing - including Vitaly Paley, Guns N' Roses and Bon Jovi and Winter Light Festival

New restaurant

Chef Vitaly Paley has opened his fifth restaurant in Portland, Rosa Rosa at 750 S.W. Alder St., on the ground floor of the Dossier Hotel.

The James Beard Award-winning chef also has Paley's Place, Imperial, Headwaters and The Crown. He opened Rosa Rosa with his partner and wife, Kimberly Paley, and executive chef Kenny Giambalvo. Rosa Rosa was named after Paley's grandmother and as an ode to the City of Roses. It takes inspiration from the rich culinary traditions of the Ottoman and Roman empires, from the Caucasus Mountains to the Mediterranean Sea.
