Portland MeFi 20th Anniversary Meetup
posted June 10, 2019 7:09 PM   RSS

Official planning thread! I'm looking at July 14th (a Sunday). Who's interested?
We could meet up at a bar, I could throw something at my house/backyard, or we could reserving a room/space, depending. Let me know what you think!

GRILL ME A CHEESE (or a burger is fine, no biggie)

Maybe a grilled cheese meetup?!

20 grilled cheeses for $20 though. No change.

I may be reaching my grilled cheese saturation point at the moment...but I'm sure I'll be ready for more by then.

More seriously, I guess the venue would depend on how many people are interested. Although maybe picking a public venue would entice more people to attend?

I will just have moved to PDX (and thus unfortunately am pretty useless for venue ideas) and this sounds super fun!

You have just volunteered to make us all grilled cheeses! 🥪🥯

I am happy to bring chairs, a canopy, foods or help set up clean up. Also, I might be able to borrow the cornhole game from my work if people are interested

If we hold this at someone's house, I also can bring chairs and food and a willingness to assist with stuff. And my warm welcome to new meetup attendees! And my sword, and my bow, and my axe!

I actually still have a lot of someone’s folding chairs (I have suspicions about who) from the last time I had a backyard meetup, so I will have or bring those!

I also will have just moved to Portland! (Well, as of 6/28.) Don't have chairs or other infrastructure, but would be happy to bring food/drink!

(Are there initiation rituals for newcomers? Like, fish-slapping those who mispronounce Couch St.?)

You'll just have to show up and find out.....

I know of a place in downtown Hillsboro that could host a 20th anniversary meetup. It’s even a block from a MAX stop. Plus, they have comfy chairs and a bunch of board games to play. And it’s possible we could talk a local brewery into having beer samples available.
