Portland Meet Up

Postby POZEST » Mon May 21, 2012 5:57 am

Last time around I went to the Portland show, a few of us met up at a restaurant within the concert venue called the Pyramid Taproom At Schonley's Place.

It turned out a few others met up elsewhere. I don't think either group knew about each other group.

I propose we meet up at the Pyramid Taproom At Schonley's Place.

The link is : http://www.rosequarter.com/OvationsFood ... fault.aspx

Discuss.

Meet-Up in Portland

Postby LisaLCFan » Sun Oct 21, 2012 9:11 pm

Hi,

How about a meet-up in Portland on Nov 11? It's only three weeks away!

I've never been to Portland, and know nothing about where we could meet, so hopefully someone else will have some ideas/suggestions.

Cheers,
Lisa

Lisa: How wonderful you will be there! We will have a nice group from the Forum.
I am a Portland concert latecomer, only recently added it to my LC concert adventure, so I am not sure if there is a Portland meetup thread already?

In 2010 we met at a fun brewpub on site.

Hi Alrene,

Ah, there is a Portland meetup thread, started WAAAY back in May (I should have searched more diligently), with only one post and no replies (up till now), and this is it:

viewtopic.php?f=61&t=32156&p=307331&hil ... up#p307331

I'll go there to resume this discussion!

Hi,

I'll be in Portland, and look forward to meeting other forum members! This "Pyramid Taproom" sounds like a good idea.

Who else is coming?

Lisa: Thanks for finding the original Portland meet-up thread. I also will go there to "Cohen On".

I agree with you, Jimmie.
The Pyramid Taproom at the Rose Quarter venue was a great place for our meet-up last time.
So, please count me in.

You let me sing, you lifted me up, you gave my soul a beam to travel on. You folded your distance back into my heart.

I may be in, but don't know the area at all. I'll be going with an old friend who lives up there. Where is the Pyramid Taproom and . . . by the way, is there a convenient hotel nearby? Friend will host me for 2 nights, but I'm thinking perhaps it might be nicer to just get a hotel room.
I was cautioned to surrender, this I could not do . . . .

Hi sufergirl,

I've never been there, but I do know that the venue is across the river from downtown, and from what I've heard, staying downtown is preferable to staying by the venue (it is easy to get to, apparently). There are many hotels downtown. According to the first post, the Pyramid Taproom is in the venue itself. It should be easy to find. Hope to see you there!

Downtown Portland definitely nicer than by Rose Garden and there is great public transport however Nov 11 is Veteran's Day in American and maybe buses don't operate - not sure. You all might want to google research - there's always taxis. I'd love to be there, it is where I saw him in 2010, however Armenia is a bit far for me right now. I'll be there in spiritu!
