Rose and Raindrop seemed to work out OK last time, for whatever that's worth...

which may not be much, but still...

Are you fishing for favorites again, jonson?

jessamyn will be in portland at the end of the month, so we should do something then. I think it's the 28th or so.

If anyone, anyone, could pick me up in Olympia on their way to Portland, I would be oh so eternally grateful.

I might be able to make this.

I'm in!

Party! Has matildaben moved to town yet?

I'm in town for a blah blah library thing and I think the 28th would be totally perfect. Anyone?

Oh. I guess you mean Oregon. I thought for a minute it was Maine. *sigh*

Why is it that damn near every time there's a meetup in Portland I have plans?
The 28th is out for me, pretty much the whole rest of the month is good.

So, the initial proposal:

- Saturday, October 28th (aka Dawn Of The Jessamyn)
- Rose and Raindrop (which accomodated us well enough last time, and is conveniently near other places)
- 3ish? It's a Saturday, so we ought to be able to start earlier than evening-time...
- togdon is a loser

will there be party hats?
posted by yodelingisfun at 9:54 AM on October 4, 2006


Does the Pope shit in the woods?

Because if he does then you could take advantage of that isolated moment of distraction and vulnerability to steal his mitre, and wear that to the meetup, and then there would be hats.

I ♥ Cortex.
If it's really early enough in the day (3pm qualifies) I'd love to sneak a pint in before my plans.
I love the idea of hats.
That's a lot of love folks...

For what it's worth, the Rose & Raindrop will be closing at the end of this year. Not that that affects these plans or anything. I'm just sayin'...

Also, I will bring party hats, but I refuse to wear one.

'cause that's how I roll.
posted by dersins at 12:36 PM on October 4, 2006


I would love to come. I will be coming through Oly so I can give rides.

(Nope, cortex, not moving till next year.)
posted by matildaben at 12:40 PM on October 4, 2006


Oh man I cannot believe it's going to close! I worked there back when it was Digger O'Dells, lots of oysters and roaches. I'm running out of new guys to bring with me though, I'll have to start recyclng. Oh and hats. Hats rule.

Damn. Could you convince my wife not to go into labor until the 29th?

I'll have the boys talk with her. They're very, how do you say, persuasive.

These the same guys who tried to sell me a knife on the corner of Burnside and 3rd back in '96? Rough bunch.

I'm in.
R&R was good fun.
(pending work schedule being flexible of course)

Damn. Me, too.

Oh man, messowie?! If I wasn't closing on a new house that week (yay! first home!) I'd be up for a road trip. The timing, it does suck.

CD, JanetLand, I live like three hours from you guys. Post-November, let's do an all-New-England (or maybe Northern New England) shindig.

You have-ta admit those were some nice knifes we were selling.

So curvy.

I get way too drunk with you people, so I'm in. I'll bring my bad attitude and lack of party hats.

Sounds good! MeFi Christmas party!

I will try to make it, too. This would be my first mefi meetup. But I might be moving that weekend, in which case I won't try very hard.
posted by croutonsupafreak at 6:42 PM on October 16, 2006


I guess this is where it's at?
posted by mathowie (staff) at 1:48 PM on October 20, 2006


Yep, that's where it is. The #6 stops right near there if you're going by bus.
