Lunch meeting in Downtown Portland
Thanks richcabot and TerryL for the great conversation!
I have to apologize to TerryL and anyone else who made it to the Behind the Museum Cafe only to find nobody there! I made the assumption that the cafe in the back of the museum was said location but it isn't, it's across the street! So sorry if anyone was stood up.
We will be getting together again next month to continue the conversation and I promise to get the location right.
More to come.
Is there any chance you guys might meet after 5pm or so in the future? I live in Beaverton and it's really hard to get downtown for lunch on a weekday. I'd love to connect with you guys though.
I'm not usually available after work due to wanting to get home and see my kids before they go off to bed. But given enough lead time, I might be able to plan to attend the first part of a 5pm get together.
I bet there are others in the Portland Prosperity group that are in your situation though, and an evening gathering would be better. Do you want to coordinate a happy hour and see who bites? I get the impression that there are several PPers on the West Side, maybe a lunch or happy hour in Beaverton? I might be able to do lunch if it's not too far off the Max line.
Also, Solana and I talked about having a park day for those of us with kids. Just a thought if you're in that boat.
Would you be willing to throw something out there for the rest of us to weigh in on?
It is nice to see some activity in the Portland group. Several of us started a Resiliency group in West Linn that meets monthly. We just had a discount fruit plant / tree sale that was very successful.If someone sets up a meeting in Beaverton, we would try to come.
I'm in Hillsboro and would also be interested in meeting up.
I'm thrilled to find other Portland people on this site, and would definitely enjoy hearing what others have done to build resiliency
Nice work, Mark!
When and where is the meeting? Is it open to everyone? Is it ok if young kids are present?
Hi Paul & others,
There's a nice, relatively new brewpub in Beaverton called Brannon's on Cedar Hills Blvd that might be a good place to meet. They have happy hour until 6pm Monday – Friday. I would propose 5pm on Wednesday 3/25, but I'm flexible too. Any takers?
I don't have kids, but I wouldn't rule out a park day either. Sounds fun.
Excited to meet you guys!
Wednesday March 25th at Brannons works for me as I have no kids at home any longer but I come from the East side of Portland and it would be tough to get there before 6pm.
I guess I will have to pay full price for my beer.
My cell phone is 503 349 9629 in case anyone wants to get in touch outside of this forum. The Resiliency Organization of West Linn has a website if anyone is interested: ROWL.org.
Tyler – I won't be able to make the 25th but I hope I can catch you guys at the next one.
Mark – Thanks for the Resiliency Organization of West Linn link! Looks like the group has some fun things going on.
I'll be posting a downtown lunch date for late March to mid April soon. I know it's a ways away but this is a busy time of year for me.
Also, for those of you on the East Side, Terry L and I will be finding some time during an upcoming weekend (or Spring Break) to hang out. PM me if you're interested in joining us!
I will try to make that. Some friends in town, but they may be leaving the day before. I will see.
I hope to make it and finally meet you.
