Thu December 31 at 12:00 PM, Portland Mercado
7238 SE Foster Rd, Portland, OR, USA (Map & Directions)
Me and baniak will be in Portland, FOR REAL THIS TIME! Let's have a chill hang!
After the aborted August trip, we will finally be in town!

We will be in Portland the evening of December 30 through the evening of January 1.

Brunch? Cocktails? Hanging out in the park with the Ramona Quimby statue? I don't know! What works for you? All suggestions welcome.

Food and/or drink is always fine by me.

Let's see, looks like last time you were looking at pip's donuts or the Portland Mercado (which I have not been to, but which sounds good). What time do you get in on the 30th? Or would it be better to look at doing something on the 31st, maybe brunchish or lunchish time?

Brunch/Lunch on the 31st will probably be best, I'm not sure what time we will be back on the 30th.

And the Mercado would be absolutely fine - I was really hoping to go there while we're in town.

If there's interest, we could also throw a brunch/lunch potluck - no need to bring food if you're coming from out of town!

Just as an option. Basically, we're in town for another few months and our place is always available for potlucks while we're still here.

I'd love to see you guys and check out the Mercado!

Hi! How does New Years Day Brunch-adjacent something sound? It looks like NYE is going to be spent running around to the few places I want to go while they are open (I did not plan very well).
posted by bibliogrrl at 8:40 PM on December 15, 2015

Sounds good, I say go for it.
posted by Greg_Ace at 8:43 PM on December 15, 2015

Ok, I contacted Portland Mercado to see if they would be open on NYD.
posted by bibliogrrl at 8:22 AM on December 16, 2015

...and the Mercado will be closed on NYD. So, any ideas where we could go?
posted by bibliogrrl at 2:29 PM on December 16, 2015

CHANGE OF PLANS. Just found out we had bad information, and we will be back a day earlier. BRUNCH ON NYE IS A GO.
posted by bibliogrrl at 9:08 PM on December 16, 2015

Awesome, sounds good!

Hmmm, Fabric Depot is also open on NYE. And also far to the SE. Must not be derailed by food coma from delicious plantain-based snacks!

I live just down the street from this! How did I not notice this until now? NYE at the Portland Mercado at noon!

Hey, looks like I won't be able to make it after all. Have fun everyone! Happy new year!

I'm visiting and can bring tidings from the Mefite community in Washington, DC!

If anybody is still there or the party has moved to other locale around 2p I will come by late!

You will know me by my blue and orange backpack and sequined skirt. :D

Note: we have staked out tables inside.

On our way, ate a late breakfast, dang it. I'm wearing a purple down jacket, cortex has a dark gray hoodie on.

It was so lovely to see you all! Sorry I had to split so early!

It was a good time! Now I want to eat every future meal at mercado.

It was nice variously meeting/seeing you all and all, but this leftover chorizo burrito is fucking killing it right now and I basically want to invite it to all future meetups.

It can be Metafilter's new mascot!
