I'll be in Portland, OR from 8-4 (coming in late that night) to 8-11 and Seattle from 8-30 (late that night ditto) to 9-7 and would love to get together.

Hooray meetups! I'd be up for something in Portland on the 5th, 6th, or 7th.

I'm always open for meetups!

We haven't had a Seattle meetup in a little while, I think it's high time for another.

I thought it said PWN! and was kind of disappointed.

Y'all could converge on Olympia & that would be cool. :) (Just sayin'...I keep intending to get to one of those big-city meetups but it just doesn't happen.)

(Reading again: obviously that doesn't work for brujita, but maybe in the future?)

I could do the 5th here in stumptown but I'm flying out on the 6th.

OK, the 5th in PDX.

I'm game. It'll be a fun send-off for gecko.

Okay, what about a location for Portland? We've got East Burn (the Old Standby), there's the Green Dragon (the New Hotness)... anywhere else?
posted by maqsarian at 1:20 PM on July 27, 2010

Does Green Dragon serve food?
posted by brujita at 9:59 PM on July 28, 2010

How about 9-3 for Seattle?
posted by brujita at 10:32 PM on July 28, 2010

Does Green Dragon serve food?

Yes, there is good food at the GD, and at EB as well.

I'll let the locals pick both places.

It might be relevent that the Buckaroo is closing forever on Sept 17.

Kid-friendly places are ok with me.

The 5th for PDX would work for me. Maybe someone can throw this up on IRL so we can all get a chance to RSVP twice, because that's how they do things on this coast, it's soooo laid back.

Can't put it on IRL until we have a venue.
posted by brujita at 10:58 PM on July 30, 2010

Okay then, I vote for East Burn because we did Green Dragon the last two times, and because I like it there. Say, 6:00?
posted by maqsarian at 1:38 AM on July 31, 2010

I've added it to IRL.
posted by brujita at 11:54 AM on July 31, 2010

I've come in to say The Horse Brass. Or maybe Moon and Sixpence? The Alibi? Oh, wait! Food carts!
posted by fiercekitten at 10:59 PM on July 31, 2010

The Roxy!

Can we get a consensus? Anyplace where we can sit down is fine with me....and I empathize with those who are bored with the usual; I feel the same way about Revival in NYC.

I'm on the OR west coast for the next few days and online just late at night.
posted by brujita at 1:42 AM on August 2, 2010

I think we should probably stick to the current plan for this one, because time is a factor, and it's already all IRLed and everything. I also think the Horse Brass is a great idea for the next one.
posted by maqsarian at 8:41 AM on August 2, 2010

I wasn't serious. I would really prefer not to spend the entire flight the next day getting sick.
posted by geckoinpdx at 9:41 PM on August 3, 2010

I've put my cell in my profile (call and text only).

See you soon!

Good to meet you guys!
posted by brujita at 2:04 AM on August 6, 2010

We missed you, cortex!

It turns out that I had to tweak the Seattle part of my trip due to passport issues (I'd wanted to go to Victoria and now can't), so I'll be there from the 19th to 31st.

I can make the tavern part of the meetup on the 22nd.
