Wallbangers (915 SW 2nd Ave), the bar with dueling pianos, appears to be no more. At least, there's paper over the windows, and not a lot left in the building.
And in Pho Van news, the Pho Van on Hawthorne (3404 SE Hawthorne Blvd) is now open as of lunch today (Wednesday, March 1, 2006). They're open everyday (but Monday!) for lunch and dinner, with the same menu as Pho Van on 82nd's lunch menu (eg, no Bo bay mon, or whole catfish).
Pho Van Bistro (1012 NW Glisan St) in the Pearl might be closing for remodeling. When? Hmm, not entirely sure. It may not even close. Who knows? Anyhow, the rumor is that they want to incorporate the popular dishes into a new menu for a new high-end restaurant called Silk.
