    Well, it sounds like there is once again intrest in a meeting. Maybe for late January early February? Lets have some ideas about times and places.

    Out doors events are likely out.
    I was thinking about something informal......maybe at a pizza place, (maybe a tavern w/ food), or maybe we can talk Ayn and Bill into another Trival Pursuit get together?

    I am down with that. Taverns, Pizza, anything with food and beer is good.


    I really don't know the answer to this question,... is Downtown Portland Central for
    most attendees?

    working at Moonstruck now in Pioneer Place. Can come whenever with enough notice. I should start playing my trivial DVD pursuit more just in case. Anyone notice Clone War Cartoons on Itunes. Can't wait for the SW movies themselves. To have SW in the palm of my hand would be sweet indeed. Just got a new Imac Desktop too. I love technology always and forever.

    I'd love to come out and meet you all, any time on the weekend would rock for me. As far as venue suggestions, pretty much any of the McMenamins in Portland would be awesome for food, drinks and maybe some pool, not to mention accommodate a decent sized group of people.

    Just my 2 credits. =)

    OK, so far we have a date....Feb 4th.

    Regarding the comic book show, I'm sure that a lot of us will make it on the 18th as well. It will also be something to talke about on the 4th.

    Also, it sounds like we have the following possible attendees:

    CrashDown & Blue
    Darth-Bubba
    jawafett
    brigandarklung
    Quick2
    AramysStrael
    MaraSkywalkeriii
    PDX_TwiChick

    I personally like the idea of pizza but McMenamins is also a great idea. Any other ideas? Which one does everyone like?

    Count me in for a get-together.

    Also, I'd actually prefer a McMenamins due to the variety.

    As far as a McMenamin's goes... for a semi-central location, I might recommend The Kennedy School.

    Info above on The Kennedy School, the address is:
    5736 N.E. 33rd Ave.
    Portland, OR 97211

    I'd even be happy to carpool with people out on this end of town, as in give a ride, this is of course hoping the engine in my car decides to allow it to actually move in a forward fashion. =/

    Time? I'm good for anything, midday is nice for being a Sunday.
