Big’s Chicken, the smoked chicken shack that lived fast and died young in its original Northeast Portland location before making it big in Beaverton, will return to the Rose City with a second restaurant less than 10 blocks from the first.The restaurant, which started life as the Five Napkin Chicken pop-up in the parking lot of Laurelhurst Market, closed in 2017 near the height of its popularity after fire destroyed its Northeast Glisan Street building. After searching for a new location nearby, Your Neighborhood Restaurant Group owners Ben Dyer, Jason Owens, David Kreifels and chef Ben Bettinger took the concept to Beaverton last year, opening a much larger restaurant in the former Beaverton collector’s shop The Peddler’s Pack. It’s been a hit. Big's Chicken goes to Beaverton, gets bigger, adds burger Big's smoked chicken and Alabama-style White Gold sauce are back, this time in the 'burbs.

Big's Chicken's Northeast Portland location lived fast and died young. The roadhouse-style shack opened on an underserved-stretch of Northeast Glisan Street in April, 2017, serving dirty rice, JoJos and excellent smoked chicken sandwiches basted and drenched in Alabama-style "White Gold" sauce. Riding an outsized wave of neighborhood support, the restaurant emerged as one of the hottest of the summer. And then it was on fire, literally, burning to the ground in mid-July. Today, the restaurant's old two-story apartment building is a gravel lot. And Big's has moved to the 'burbs. If you visited Big's Chicken during its brief Northeast Portland run, the first thing that you'll notice about the Beaverton restaurant, which opened in the old Peddler's Pack collector's shop near longtime Korean restaurant Nak Won in August, is the size. Compared to the original, the new Big's Chicken … [Read more...] about Big’s Chicken goes to Beaverton, gets bigger, adds burger

Barry Svrluga, The Washington Post Published 10:05 pm, Thursday, June 21, 2018 Even with Stephen Strasburg's balky shoulder and Ryan Zimmerman's healing oblique and Daniel Murphy's creaky knee, there is no greater issue hanging over the Washington Nationals than Bryce Harper's Slump - and that's what it is, with a capital "S", because the would-be best player in baseball has been one of its least productive offensive performers for the better part of a month. In good times, the microscope on Harper is worthy of the world's best biology labs. When he is hitting .133 for the month of June, as he was entering Thursday's series finale against Baltimore, well, let's just say there are theories. He's hurt. Defensive shifts are messing with his mind. He's frozen by his impending free agency.

It’s a Slump with a big ‘S’.
