Sun November 8 at 3:00 PM, Oregon Public House
700 NE Dekum St, Portland, OR, USA (Map & Directions)
The holiday season is nearly upon us (say it ain't so!), so we are having a meetup before things get too crazy!
But where would be a good place to go?
Something tried and true? Or something new?

The Oregon Public House is our destination.

I may have something going on the weekend of Nov.1, I'm not sure yet. Otherwise my calendar's pretty open.

Oh, and I'd be open to checking out a new place.

There is a chocolate meetup on 10/31- but that's not to say back to back meetups is impossible, since different people may be interested in different meetups!

Verboort! Bulk Sauerkraut! Beer Shuttlebus! I like the sound of that.

bulk sausage is important to me.

There's a bingo hall near us.

mimo: BINGO!

This would be something new.

The Verbort Sausage thing is Nov 7th. Ticket sales start at 10 am and the dinner goes until 8pm.

Or we could try Loyal Legion for reals.

We had a meetup at Loyal Legion when backseat pilot was in town, and it was very loud. They also only take cash, which isn't a deal-breaker but is something to be aware of if we do go there.

There is BINGO! at the sausage fest.
[not a euphemism].
posted by mimo at 9:01 AM on October 23, 2015

Oh? What is "BINGO!" usually a euphemism for?

What about doing dinner someplace again? Olympia Provisions?

We haven't been to Bridgeport in a while.

As I recall it gets really loud when it's busy. Maybe we could find a quieter time to go?

I just heard of the Oregon Public House from a former co-worker. It's non-profit and serves beer!
posted by fiercekitten at 5:59 PM on October 29, 2015

Menu looks good, beer list not what I'd call outstanding. A bit of a jaunt for anyone on the west side of town. But otherwise I'm okay with it.

Let's just go with the Oregon Public House. It looks pretty good.
Sunday, November 7th? 3:00pm?
posted by nickthetourist at 3:37 PM on October 30, 2015

Did you mean Sunday the 8th? Or Saturday the 7th?
posted by Greg_Ace at 4:23 PM on October 30, 2015

I mean Sunday the 8th. Does that work for peeps?
posted by nickthetourist at 9:48 PM on October 30, 2015

It does for me.
posted by Greg_Ace at 12:16 AM on October 31, 2015

We can even catch happy hour!
posted by fiercekitten at 11:05 AM on November 1, 2015

Ah shoot. I have family coming in this weekend. Next time!
posted by Sibrax at 4:28 PM on November 2, 2015

It doesn't look like this is happening at this point, unless some other folks plan to come to it but haven't formally committed to attending....
posted by Greg_Ace at 6:58 PM on November 6, 2015

We might go over there anyway since it's someplace to scope out for future reference.
posted by fiercekitten at 10:42 AM on November 7, 2015

My Saturday family thing has switched to Sunday so I'm out. :(
posted by vespabelle at 5:23 PM on November 7, 2015

I don't think I can make it, either. Thought I was over this cold but I'm not.
posted by knuckle tattoos at 12:56 PM on November 8, 2015

We will be heading over shortly.
posted by nickthetourist at 2:13 PM on November 8, 2015

I just got here and grabbed a table near the door.
