Thu April 30 at 6:00 PM, Prost
4237 North Mississippi Avenue, Portland, OR, USA (Map & Directions)
I'll be staying in Portland April 28th through May 4th! I'd love to have a beer or 3 with some mefites while I'm in town.
I'm staying near the intersection of MLK and Skidmore, and would prefer to go somewhere within a reasonable distance of there, or on a not-too-complex bus ride away. Basically, I'd like to do some drinking and still be able to get home safely.

Other than that, suggestions? I tend towards the beers rather than fancy cocktails.

Do Portland folks go to weekday meetups? I am not a huge fan of big weekend crowds.

OK, Thursday the 30th at Prost at 6 p.m. Excited to meet you folks!

Also, the is a fantastic opportunity to make SF mefites jealous! I never make it to meetups back home because I work nights and weekends.

MLK & Skidmore puts you about a half-mile from a great stretch of Mississippi (a few long blocks between Skidmore and Fremont), so very walkable; the Alberta district is also not too far off but probably more like a mile and a half to get from most stuff to where you'll be and vice versa.

One of my favorite places on Mississippi is Prost, a pub on Skidmore and Mississippi that specializes in German/Bavarian beer on tap and tasty sausages and pretzels and such; it's also adjacent to a pod of food carts so there's a lot of other food choices available (that they're fine with bringing onto their patio to go with your beer) if you're not specifically into e.g. currywurst.

But also a bunch of other stuff in the area.

I don't know if anybody's really against a weekday meetup but it can be sort of catch-as-catch-can depending on schedules. Maybe the evening of Thursday April 30th?

I have a day job, but could make a weekday evening meetup.

Thursday the 30th at Prost it is! I'll probably show around 6 and hang out until 11 or so. Unless my concept of timing is total shit. Which it often is.

Prost has really great outdoor seating so if the weather is good we'll probably come.

I have arrived in Portland! Woooo! It is raining, which, coming from the CA drought, is actually quite lovely. See you all the day after tomorrow.

Looks like the weather will be nice for sitting outdoors, huzzah!

Getting an outdoor table might be pretty tough. I just arrived, will be lurking in short order. In a purple shirt with an orange bag.

Yeh, small table inside (shade!) for now.

I'm about 10 minutes out. Grey shirt with purple flower, black bag with pink wing.

Me and Sec and knuck tats just got here as well. I was sort of hoping it'd be all rainy and shit today, this nice-ass weather really brought out a crowd for a weekday.

We are en route. ETA 6:50.

Good to meet you, mollymayhem! Could you post or memail me pictures of the Mefite's Guide to Portland? No rush, just whenever. Lots of good suggestions in there!

I just popped in here to look for the Mefite's Guide, too! I hope it was useful to you, and I would definitely pass it along to some upcoming visitors of mine.
