Anyone up for a meetup at Hopworks Urban Brewery?
I'm thinking January 15th around 6:00 or so.

That gets my vote, as I'll be freshly moved into my new house mere blocks from that very establishment, and ready to celebrate - i.e., I'll be exhausted and ready to sit down for a bit and have a beer.

I could be down, definitely.

Yes, this is a good idea.

It is settled, Meetup: HUB it shall be.

I will be solo parenting that night, but maybe I could get a sitter for a couple of hours.

I've been looking for an excuse to test taking the 9 from my house to Hopworks, so this could be the excuse I need!

shockingly, I just happen to be flying into Portland that weekend to see a show (Read it and Weep's live show), so I will do my darndest to attend this.

I might be there.

Oh, SE, you used to be not so far away. I figure we'll make it out anyway, though.

No worries - we'll let you pick the next meetup spot so it's closer to home, okay?

you DO have cool pubs near you, right?

There's this tiny little place a block away that would be pretty amusing to flood with a dozen mefites. We could totally do that some time.

A Flash Meta-Mob!

Okay, maybe just a mob, period. Either's good.

Ooh! I left the UK for America last September and now live in PDX so it would be great to meet some new Mefites. I should be able to make this and hopefully Specklet can make it, too.

Being more than 5000 miles away from pdx on Saturday leads me to the logical conclusion that I will have to forgo this particular gathering. Have fun.

I am a lot fewer than 5000 miles away, but alas will also not be able to make it this evening. Have fun kids!

Wow! This place is busy tonight.
We're waiting for a table ATM.
Going to grab a beer and wait.

Vault Room.
We are in the Vault Room.
posted by nickthetourist at 6:20 PM on January 15, 2011

I'm about an hour away, but am heading down that way.

I wish I'd seen that Vault Room update before I gave up trying to find you folks. I guess you must have been still in the bar. Well, I'm almost home now, so I'll see you next time. Hopefully!

We moved!! Were upstairs!
posted by Lutoslawski at 7:21 PM on January 15, 2011

Ok folks, we are now upstairs.
posted by nickthetourist at 7:24 PM on January 15, 2011

Will we visit HUB again?
posted by fiercekitten at 3:07 PM on January 16, 2011

Possibly, though maybe not on a Saturday? A little busy (and far) for my taste.

Downtown/close-in North or SE seems to be easier for all concerned.

But I'd go to Gresham for you guys, so I guess it doesn't matter.

I still think it's the first time two meetups happened simultaneously at the same place with no commingling. Strange internet people.

Friends don't let friends go to Gresham.

There was discussion on the drive back to the 'burbs about going to Glowing Greens for some mini golf at some point in the future.
However, after looking at their website, the place looks kind of....I don't know how to describe.
posted by nickthetourist at 11:19 PM on January 18, 2011

Actually, despite their dearth of website-design skills it's a hoot, and funky-not-creepy. No beer, though.
posted by Greg_Ace at 8:25 AM on January 19, 2011

After looking at those pictures I can't see why you don't want to be there right now. It glows.
posted by mimo at 9:08 AM on January 19, 2011

No beer, though.

But there plenty of watering holes in the vicinity.

It glows.

Good point.
Now we just need a date and time, I suppose.

I have added photos.
Although I have no idea how to use flickr properly.

maqsarian/gecko/nick/fierce: Just saw this article about that Laura Hall woman. She has a TV show...
