*BIG* ALL MEETUP Happy Hour at SPLASH BAR

*** UPDATE 8/15 - between the different groups, there are approximately 100 people RSVPd so far.  So, with another week to go, it is possible we could see close to 200 folks at this event!***

Have you ever wondered what other cool Meetup groups there are in Portland that you aren't currently a member of? I plan a lot of events around town, and don't generally post events in multiple Meetup groups, but for this event, I'm posting in every group possible.

And, I'm inviting all other organizers out tonight to have an opportunity to talk to people about your Meetup Group and events you plan.

As an added bonus, this event is being promoted in a number of 'singles' groups, so if you are single, there will be a number of other singles in attendance. But, even if you aren't single, feel free to come out and talk to organizers of groups you may not know exist and hear about cool, new events coming up. There are a number of non-singles events going on in Meetup all the time.

A little bit about Splash Bar: it is a fun venue in the heart of the Pearl, on NW 9th and Couch. It has plenty of space for mingling. And, it has food happy hour pricing until 7pm and drink happy hour pricing until 10pm. That's right - 10pm! And, they have a 'shot bus' with specialty shots - most for $5 - all night long. Throw in free pool, free video games, and a dunk tank, and it makes for a really fun night!

So, I hope to see you out here to learn more about what you can get out of Meetup, and perhaps make a connection or two.

    Why is this 20 & 30ish happy hour and I'm getting hit on by oldies everywhere. Did I miss the memo?

    I'll bring one of my 20s\30s Meetup signs and put it on one of the tables so all of us in the 20s\30s group can find each other.

      Cool Jason. Although, I was envisioning the point of this event to be for different groups to socialize with each other. What would really help is if you could bring a laptop or a notebook. I think it would be great to have a live example of some of the different ways you could use the Meetup site!

      I just want to be able to find others in the 20s\30s group and I figure others on here would too. This was well received a previous time I did this at a similar event so thought I would do it again.

      I think if you want an atmosphere to help meet people from other groups, what would make sense is for each group to have a host with their own sign they put on a table or edge of a bar somewhere. This way, you are not meeting people completely at random until you happen to cross someone exclusively from another group. Also, because a lot of people already associate with multiple groups and don't actually have an identity towards one or the other.

    Couchsurfing's weekly meetup is taking place at the same bar! Are the two groups affiliated?

    August 22, 2013

    • Troy

      Hi Annette. In my description of this event, I invited organizers to come out to talk about their events. So, perhaps the organizer of Couchsurfing saw that posting and is taking me up on my invitation :)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
