Lunch meeting in Downtown Portland
I'm checking to see if anyone works downtown (or otherwise close in/inner east-side) and would be interested in meeting up for lunch, maybe regularly if it works out. I can't do after work due to family responsibilities but can coordinate a lunch if there's interest.
It would be great to have another opportunity to share info about prepping, discuss recent articles, and whatever else is top of mind. Relaxed, inexpensive or even a brown-bag, and just over the lunch hour.
Let me know and I'll work on making it happen.
Lunch is tough for me most days.
Fridays, or Wed for a late lunch may be possible. (Say 1230 or 1)
I would be interested in trying it out. I'm in LO so the downtown location is the hassle for me but it's not that bad during the middle of the day.
Hi Dan and Rich,
Good to hear from you. A Wednesday late lunch would work for me. In addition, I know I said after work is not an option but I've got flexibility in my day where I could go in early and get off early, say 4pm. Does a 4-5pm happy hour work better for either or both of you? Of course downtown is not a great place to be at 5pm, but I thought I'd throw it out there.
And if only two of us could get together at any one time, that's fine too 🙂
I'll PM both of you my email so we can talk closer to real time.
I live in Beaverton but I could come sometimes to downtown with my almost 4 year old daughter who's really well-behaved. Lunchtime would work best for me since at 4 or 5 my other 3 children are home from school and it would be tough to bring all of them. As a tightwad, I'd probably bring my own lunch.
Bringing your daughter would be fine with me, Solana. But if it is hard to do lunch – and I don't know why I didn't think about it before – those of us with young kids (and those of us that are kids at heart) could get together at a park on the weekend if the weather is decent. I've got three (7, 5 and 2) that I need to get out for a good run around anyway. We live in NE but can easily travel to Beaverton (or just about anywhere in the Metro area). Just another possibility.
Solana – I'll PM you my email since I'm not on PP as often as I check my mail.
I'd be open to a Saturday afternoon get together at a park too once in a while. Then we could all bring our families. Or maybe some lunches in PDX sometimes and some Saturdays sometimes, maybe varying locations for various people in the area.
Sounds good, Solana. PM me contact info and I'll send you, Rich and Dan an email to first coordinate a lunch and we'll go from there if there's interest.
Rich and I set a lunch date for March 4th at 1pm. We haven't picked a place yet but we'll be meeting near the Portland Art Museum. Everyone is welcome, just let us know so we can keep an eye out for you.
I'll try to make it.
