Meetup Wrapup

Did you mean to swing by the Green Dragon tonight and say hello? Maybe couldn’t make it because of a last minute commitment or just couldn’t deal with the weather and went home to drink tea?

Well boy HOWDY did you miss you! We met FOUR new (to meetups) reader/commenters, all of whom were lovely (though sadly, none of whom were McAngrypants) and we had mussels and frites and great conversation and superb beverages. I believe a good time was had by all.

We met shiny new (moved here four weeks ago) Tex who is on a not so secret crusade to get her friends to move here from the midwest, who was very pleased to meet us since she said she has been checking us out to find interesting Portland tidbits.

We met Rick, the man behind the #1 search result on Google for beer drinker, Beer Drinker dot org. He was awesome, and enjoyed perusing the vast menu at the Green Dragon. He was there with Nedra of Blue Deer Designs.

We met tODD who wasn’t entirely certain about meeting people off the internet. I think we managed to put his mind at ease, though. Since none of us were axe murderers or anything. (Well, I had the sense to leave my axe at home anyway…)

Plus we had an appearance from the divebarhubby himself! It was just for a couple of beers before band practice, and we had a lovely time polishing off the first batch of frites.

It was a VERY good time and I hope everyone who meant to come but didn’t is now having a little “V-8 moment” and wishing they’d showed up. We do it once a month, so keep a night in mid-November open and I’ll let you know when the next one is coming up!

    It was great meeting you Tex and tODD and RIck and Nedra! I had so much fun chatting and imbibing the lovely Green Dragon beverages.

    Yup, it was nice meeting all of you, too.

    It’ll be interesting reading posts from people I’ve actually met now. In fact, I bet if everyone met the people that they communicate with online, we’d all act a lot differently — hopefully a lot nicer. Can we have an all-internet-users meetup next time? Preferably at someplace with the capacity for, well, several million people?
