Whiffies and Food Carts Portland featured on MSNBC, Strange Love Live gets a cameo


Whiffies and Food Carts Portland featured on MSNBC, Strange Love Live gets a cameo

We’re a fairly tight-knit community here in the Portland startup scene. Even if those startups have nothing to do with tech.

One of the best examples? The Portland food cart scene. We know it’s awesome. And it’s also a primary source of sustenance that fuels any number of late night hacking session—or even daytime hacking session depending on the cart.

Arguably, there is no more beloved cart—at least by the local geeks—than Whiffies, the fried pie cart at Cartopia on SE Hawthorne. Especially because Whiffies’ strong Twitter presence. So it was great to see Whiffies, Food Carts Portland‘s Dieselboi, and even Strange Love Live getting a little love from the national press.

Nice to see some of the most hardworking folks I know get some of the recognition they so richly deserve.

  1. Yeah Dieselboi! Had the chance to sit next to him at a Portland Ignite event. Was quite a shock to see him pop up on my tv.

    Very cool exposure for Portland startups.
