April 22 is Sunday, which may be easiest for anyone out of town, but that is also Reba's arrival date, so I don't know. The rest are weekdays, so maybe dinner and Powell's in the evening? We will have to wait for more info from RRR. Her first priority is going to be the arrival of a new grandson and seeing other family members. : )

The organizers of my June meeting in PDX sent out a preferred date survey today. All of them are in the twenty-somethings.

And... if folks from out of town are coming into Portland I will do my best to be there. June 21 - 24 are out of the question but otherwise I will prioritize any PDX meet up over all other forms of entertainment.

I can possibly make an extra trip to Portland but the dates I will be there, regardless, are June 27 - 29. I will tentatively plan to stay over until at least that Saturday, June 30, for meeting up with folks. I will be done with my work-related meetings around noon or 1pm on Friday, June 29.

We decided we need to spend a little more time in Portland than originally planned so we're going to leave Wednesday morning for our drive up and expect to arrive Thursday evening.

So, updates....

Saturday, June 30 -- jnwelch/Joe

Who is coming?
Joe/jnwelch
Debbi/Walklover
Kim/Berly and hubby
July/SuziQ

Joe, what time works for you? Do you want to do Powell's before or after eating? I am assuming we are doing dinner? Or does lunch work better?

Thursday July 5 -- with BLBera/Beth

Deschutes at 5:30? (I should be out of jury duty by then. Yes, I got called, again, and they chose the day after the Fourth of July. Sigh.) And then Powell's after?

Attendees so far:
Beth/BLBera

I'm in for the 30th.

I can't do dinner on the 5th - getting ready to head out of town right after work on Friday.

However - I work downtown and get off work around 4pm. If anyone is available to/wants to meet for a cocktail or glass of wine about 4:15 - 4:30 I could delay heading home from downtown long enough for a quick visit.

Portland City Grill (same building where I work) is just a few blocks from the Powell's/Deschutes area and has a spectacular view for happy hour.

73BLBera

Joe--check out the link below for restaurants and see what appeals. I know Clyde Commons, Henry's Tavern, Jakes Famous Crawfish and Deschutes Brewery are all great. Various price points. I am also willing to try any others you see there that you like! Some of them we might need reservations....let me know!

I will meet you at Powell's at 4:00 on Saturday and PM you my phone number so we can find each other. Can't wait to see you! Is Debi coming? In which case I will try to talk Walt into meeting us for dinner.

Juli, are you still coming? : )

81jnwelch
Jun 29, 2018, 8:20am Top

I didn't see any links below, Kim, but I'm sure they're all fine. We don't like Indian food (surprisingly), and don't eat meat, and Debbi doesn't like sushi, but otherwise we're flexible as all get out. I remember folks having a good time at Deschutes Brewery, and that would probably be my #1 if other folks like it. If not, whatevers. :-)

We leave for the plane soon!

Debbi is coming, and we'll look forward to meeting you at the Powell's coffee shop at 4 pm or so tomorrow. Woot!

I will be through the area around Labor Day. I don't know what my exact plans are as I am flying to see my new husband's family without my husband, and my MiL is buying the ticket. (Wants to see her grandchildren, of course, even if her son can't make it.) I will try to work with her to get a day to come down to Portland for a meetup. It'll likely be the week just approaching or just following the holiday weekend. I will be at my husband's family reunuion (sans husband) over the weekend. I thought it important that my step kids are there, even if he's not. Keep you updated!

100Berly

Okay guys! We are getting close to this meet-up. Can everyone weigh in on what days they are available? It looks like we need to do an afterwork time so that more people can come.

Is everyone up for Deschuttes again? Does 5:00 work? Dinner first and then Powell's afterwards?

August 28, 29 and 30th.

I am available for all three dates. : )

101banjo123

We arrive late Friday evening and depart late Monday afternoon. The actual party isn't scheduled yet but looks like it will be Saturday (they mentioned a women's march scheduled for Sunday that might be a logistical problem). I'm pretty sure Monday morning/early afternoon would work. Sunday a possibility.

I'm really excited I may get to see you guys again. I was thinking it would be great to meet-up but didn't mention it because I thought a holiday weekend (especially when I'm somewhat committed) probably wouldn't be possible.

I don't have Monday off work so Sunday would work best for me but if the Women's march is that day it could be problematic. If Monday ends up working best for you guys that's OK.

What about Sunday at the Powell's in Beaverton? Not the Mother Ship of course but . . . .

Actually, the women’s march is rescheduled so Sunday could work. Another thought if we want to do something different is Molly Bloom’s. Though I do have a Powell’s gift card.

If the March isn't going to be happening that makes Sunday a better option. I've also got Powell's gift cards but another bookstore could be fun too. Do you mean Annie Bloom's?

Just heard from our daughter and the birthday party is Saturday noon so either Sunday or Monday is fine with me. I'll have a car so any location is OK as well.

This ay be a duplicate post, but the first try is not posting yet....Sunday would be great! Yes, it is Annie Blooms Bookstore. I have a slight preference for Powell's but can go either way.

Just tossing out an alternative to the usual Deschutes Brewery . . .
Jake’s Grill is 3 1/2 blocks from Powell’s and they have a fairly varied weekend brunch menu.

OK, I am good with either Jake's or Deschutes, or.... Jake's is a little pricier. What do you think, Kim and Reba?

Either one if fine with me. I checked out the menu link and there was plenty that looked good and I think we met at Deschutes last time and I liked it too. Just let me know when and where to show up :)

Let's try Jake's just to change things up a little. When should we meet for lunch? 11:30?

Also, I think NittNut is in town this same time--I will check with her.

11:30 or even 11am works for me since we're going someplace kind of brunchy. I'll make a reservation once we decide.

11 or 11:30 sounds great to me. It would be great if Jenn (KnittNut) could join us. I've never met her but have followed her for several years. I'm getting so excited!!

OK - I've made us a reservation for 11am on Sunday the 20th at Jake's Grill.
I reserved a table for 6 in case Jenn or Jan can make it. I can always modify the reservation later if we end up with fewer people.

Even though you can't see me, I am sitting here with my head hanging low. I think there is a curse on me to prevent me from making these meet-ups! A very old friend from Australia let me know that she is passing through the area on Sunday and Monday and will be staying with me. Of course I am happy to see her, but I had been very excited about the meet-up.

Raise a glass to me to lift the curse and scout out lots of good books at Powell's.
