Thu August 9 at 5:30 PM, Tugboat
711 SW Ankeny St, Portland, OR, USA (Map & Directions)
I'm in Portland Sunday afternoon (5th) through Friday mid-day (10th). I'd love to meet some mefites over drinks. Ideal days for me are Sunday (I get in around 3) or Thursday night. I'm staying a few miles south of downtown and am happy to get anywhere that public transport takes me.

Argh! I saw in the sidebar that you posted this, and got all excited. Alas, you are cheating on us with Portland.

I'd come out on Thursday.

I'd be available either Sunday or Thursday.

Thursday'd work for me.

Thursday it is. Can one of you suggest a venue?

Hmmm....umm....Green Dragon?
Sorry, it's all I can think of.

If special-k is staying "south of downtown", somewhere downtown might be the best bet - especially if public transport is involved.

Sorry that south of downtown is a bit vague. I'm staying in this hood if it helps but I'm happy to getting anywhere.
posted by special-k at 3:43 PM on July 31, 2012

Ah, looks like somewhere downtown would be the best plan then, yeah; you can catch a bus up, everyone else can converge centrally.

I'm all for Tugboat if folks are down; one of the more idiosyncratic brewpubs going, if you haven't been there special-k.
posted by cortex at 3:49 PM on July 31, 2012

I haven't so I'm totally down for it.
posted by special-k at 3:50 PM on July 31, 2012

So, just to be clear, Tugboat has a somewhat limited menu of food, and I think only serves beer (no hard alcohol, and I think no wine type stuff either). However, it is good beer that they brew themselves. I love tugboat, so I'm not steering you away from it, but just wanted to mention in case you had any specific food or drink concerns. It's also possible that they will have live jazz playing sometime that night- it's a pretty small place, so if the music isn't good, you can't really avoid it.

Not that it's a big deal, we'd be right downtown so there's a lot of other places within walking distance.

Oh, and count me in for Thursday, wherever it is. :)

Capt. Ankeny's?

Thanks for that explanation, Secretariat!
I'm easy as far as bars go so I'd be happy to see y'all at tugboat or anywhere else. I like the idea of moving somewhere else downtown (and updating the thread) if it gets too loud.

Is 7:30 a good meeting time? Too early? Too late?
posted by special-k at 4:30 PM on August 1, 2012

I was thinking just after 5:00.
posted by nickthetourist at 1:16 PM on August 2, 2012

that works too. I'll post this for 5:30 and update it if needed.
posted by special-k at 3:51 PM on August 2, 2012

I too am visiting Portland, so I might join y'all.

Yay, that would be fun.
posted by Secretariat at 7:22 PM on August 6, 2012

I'll try to get there too.

I'm here, peeps.

We're headed out now.

We are at the round table, sans King Arthur.

Thanks for coming out, special-k! It was fun.

Shoot I never cashed in my free beer from Greg! The shame is considerable.
posted by churl at 10:45 PM on August 9, 2012

Yeah, it was fun! special-k, just so you don't think I'm crazy- the other SpecialK was the one who used to live in Portland. I'm just unobservant of username specifics.

churl, that just means you'll have to come to another meetup.
posted by Greg_Ace at 8:03 AM on August 10, 2012

You should be warned that the free beer in question is a can of Miller Highlife that Greg purchased at the time the debt was incurred and has carried on his person at all times since.

Ha. That was really fun guys. See you in a couple weeks!

Spoilsport - you ruined the surprise!
