Booksigning for New Best Places Portland on May 18

Published 05/04/2010

(Portland, Oregon) - Travelers can again find out what locals have known all along: Portland is one hot city.

Author and Portland resident Elizabeth Lopeman will be appearing at a booksigning/happy hour party for her new guide, Best Places Portland 2010, (Sasquatch Books) on Tuesday, May 18 from 5 - 6 p.m. at Kenny & Zuke’s Delicatessen (1038 SW Stark). Copies of Best Places Portland will be available for purchase for $19.95 and Elizabeth Lopeman will be personalizing copies.

Elizabeth also worked with local contributors including Mike Thelin, Lizzy Caston, Dana Cuellar, Joan Cirillo and Terry Richard. Kenny & Zuke’s will host small tastes of their house-smoked pastrami sandwiches, miniature knishes, and a “make your own hot dog” stand. Draft beer and wine will be available for $2.50 per glass. For more information, please call Kenny & Zuke’s at 503-222-3354.
“Seeing our delicatessen on the cover of this new Portland guide book was a huge surprise,” said co-owner Ken Gordon. “We are excited to give Elizabeth the backdrop for her book signing party and of course serve up some good locally made food.”
Best Places Portland is a much revered and in-depth look at Portland, Oregon. Whether it's munching on crepes in northwest Portland or an afternoon exploring the Garden of the Awakening Orchid, travelers will find expert opinions, insider information, and honest advice from the country's most respected regional travel series. The guide includes information on walking tours, fine and performing arts, shopping, and nightlife. Also included are reviews of new restaurants, hotels, brewpubs, and wine bars. The shopping chapter focuses on uniquely Portland boutiques and specialty stores. Lodging reviews have been streamlined, and restaurant reviews have been reevaluated as hot new establishments have taken the city by storm.
Kenny & Zuke’s is a Jewish-style delicatessen featuring many housemade ingredients, from pastrami and corned beef to pickles, bagels and rye bread. After starting a successful venture at the Hillsdale Farmer’s Market selling pastrami, Owners Nick and Ken began offering Saturday brunch at Ken’s restaurant, Ken’s Place. They renamed the venture Kenny & Zuke’s and now have two locations in Portland, including Kenny & Zuke’s Sandwichworks, which opened in 2009. Gourmet Magazine called them “one of the top 10 delis in the country” and The Oregonian named the Pastrami Burger one of the city’s “Best Bites.”

Kenny & Zuke’s is open for breakfast, lunch, happy hour and dinner. For more information, visit or call 503-222-3354. Locations include: 1038 SW Stark and 2376 NW Thurman St., Portland, Oregon.
