Sat November 18 at 5:00 PM, Lucky Lab SE Hawthorne
915 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland, OR, USA (Map & Directions)
Hey PDX it's been awhile since we met up for drinks and it's time to remedy that.
Last night I met several lurkers and less-active members and urged them to come to a meetup. Then I realized I should put my money where my mouth is (that sounds gross) and propose another meetup.

Since Sibrax is hosting a game day on November 4 and Veteran's Day is the weekend of November 11, would November 18 or 19 work?

Any suggestions for venue? One possibility is the Lucky Lab - either the NW location or Hawthorne. They both have plenty of space for gathering and beer and food.

Howsabout Mod Pizza at 204 SW Yamhill St on Tuesday evening the 14th? Looks like they sell local beer.

I'll be downtown anyway because I'm skipping town for the winter and it would be great to see y'all before I catch the bus out of town late that evening. Any food place in the orange bike zone that evening that's not a pub/bar/etc sounds good to me!

Since I’m job hunting I have to go to networking events every weeknight except Fridays... That night is a really interesting event that got me some leads last time I went. I’ll wait to see what others say.

I could make a weekday evening (such as Nov. 14) after 6-ish, or any time the weekend of Nov. 18-19.

I've been meaning to come to a meet up ever since I moved to Portland a year ago. I recently moved to Vancouver (WA) and stick out like a sore thumb here, so I'd be thrilled to go anywhere in Portland to meet y'all around Nov 18–19!

I'm amenable.

I'm into meeting up! My preference would be someplace where I don't have to navigate stairs, as I'm on a knee scooter.

Lucky Lab is next door to my work & therefore would make my attendance basically mandatory

Take that as you will

cortex and I discussed this the other night! That's why I was thinking Lucky Lab - big, open space.

It's been almost a year since I've made it to a meetup, so it seems about time for me! Any of the proposed dates look good to me.

The lucky lab on Hawthorne was the site of the very first metafilter meetup I attended in, like, 2006 or something.

I'm just saying, is all.

It sounds like the Hawthorne Lucky Lab has the majority vote. The 18th-19 is wide open for me. Are there preferences for time or day? I don't see any listing for happy hours on their site. churl, you could do some reconnaissance and see if they have one...

Either Sat 11/18 or Sun 11/19 works for me!

I am taking a workshop on dyes from fungi on the 19th. In Eugene. I vote for the 18th!
posted by janell at 5:27 PM on October 30


11/18 at the Lucky Lab on Hawthorne is the current plan. Any objections? Suggestions?
posted by bendy at 10:02 PM on October 30


Sounds good to me.

Hey, look at me suddenly having plans on a Saturday like a fancy person who leaves the house!

No objections. Eat, drink, be merry! But I'l be outta here by then, time to get a lot closer to the equator. If anyone wants to get a little extra socializing on, I'm down for downtown on Tuesday the 14th.

Won't be able to stay too long because of a later event, but I should be there!

Thanks everyone for coming out! It’s always great to see Meefites[!] and always great to meet new ones. I love our community and let’s do this more often.
