Spice Mix Mixing Party

Every cuisine in the world seems to have its own spice mix or mixes. I figure if we all get together and everyone brings a few spices, we could make a lot more spice mixes than if we each mixed them at home, and everyone could take home some of each variety. Here's a few common ones for a starting point. Let's get together and make some of them! [more inside]

Having taken Seattle by storm the previous week, my west coast pre-nursing-school vacation continues with a stop in Portland from April 21st-27th. I haven't been here since I've been old enough to drink, and I gather you've got a lot of tasty beer. Can you show me some good examples? [more inside]

New to Portland, OR

Um, hi. I've been in Portland for two months now and will probably be staying here. I'm taking a javascript course at Portland Code School and I don't know anyone here besides my classmates. I live in the Pearl District right now and am looking to meet people to hang out with, drink beer with and just generally do stuff with. I love local lore, local adventures and meeting new people. Want to meet up?

Meetup at The Mash Tun

This New Englander will have some free time in Portland next month and I've never met the local MeFites. After some discussion we've settled on talk and drinks and food at The Mash Tun Brewpub on Alberta. We'll start around 6pm and stay there until we feel the need to walk the block to Salt and Straw or somewhere else the locals suggest. See you soon!

Portland, ME food and drink

Hi! We'll be meeting up (some of us for the first time in Portland!) at Great Lost Bear on Saturday, 10/4, at 4 pm. We'll be bringing our one-year-old daughter, and hope you'll bring your young kids as well! (Of course you're welcome to bring your old kids but they probably don't want to be seen with the likes of us.) Food, beer, whatever...it's going to be superb.

Cambridge is kicking our ass, Portland. We need more meetups.

I was thinking we should have a game day/evening here in Portland again. Any suggestions for days/times/locales? Just cards, like that one time that devolved into cards against humanity? Board games? Which also usually devolves into cards against humanity. How do we feel about just playing cards against humanity, or do we not want to do that at all? [more inside]

Portland Visit

Howdy! I'll be in Portland on business and would be up for a meet-up in April. I'm arriving on 13th, but very late. But I'll be there until the morning of the 16th, which means I'll probably be available on the evening of the 14th or 15th. Anyone interested in having a beverage or two with an east coast Mefite? I'll have a car, so I'm flexible on venue. LMK, thanks!
