Mucho Gracias to JAMA and staff (Thank you Rick) for enduring me during their lunch time. Hi caliber/quality of everyone attending!
Thanks JAMA! I suggest hosting some all you can eat sandwich parties this week. ;)
On behalf of Jama, a big thanks to everyone who attended the lunch! We had a great time!

Thanks to Jama for kicking off the relaunch of Lunch 2.0. Thanks for the great lunch, and the homemade ginger cookies!
Excellent group and Jama folks did a great job hosting. It was a pleasure meeting many of you working at Jama, best of luck to you
It was a good networking event - I missed the very start so I am not sure how the event was kicked off. A little unstructured but well attended and met a lot of good people.
Hey guys - had a great time meeting everyone. Loved the space too.
Nice meeting, lots of people.
Good food, but surprisingly spicy, and I like spicy. Friendly greeters. Once filled with people, become harder to talk and hear (needs some sound suppression, a bit of an echo chamber).
Solid networking opp. Glad to have attended today and look forward to others in the future.
Jama folks (and Rick T), THANKS a million for hosting. This was some of the best networking I've done in a while.
Looking forward to catching up with old friends and making new ones. Thanks Rick and Jama for bringing this back.
I'm new in Portland - actually Beaverton. Spent 20+ years as an institutional investment banker in top-tier Wall Street and another 15 years as a startup consultant in Southern California. Am interested in meeting the entrepreneurial community here and getting involved. I do positioning sessions, startup planning, business re-organization, prep for private placements & IPOs, compliance, investor relations and strategic introductions. Also lots of financial & business writing. Looking forward to meeting everyone. [the pic is from my SoCal blond days - now have black hair so come over to talk when you see me]
See you tomorrow! If you can't make it, please let us know so that Jama can adjust their numbers.

I'll still be there, but probably closer to 12:30.
Hey Rick, I've been assuming since this is kind of open house style since it's 3 hours long, but I guess I should make sure. So... What's the story on arrival and stuff?
Hello Tami. It is open house style, though ends at 1:15pm.
Thanks Morgan! The original invitation said it ran until 3pm, so that's good info. We'll plan to be there close to noon.
Is this still really 2.0?
Yowsa! 239 people are attending?! Rick, I joked about you being Frankenstein for resurrecting Lunch 2.0. Little did we know, you really had created a monster. :-)
I look forward to it.
My thought, too, Carri. Rick has been a regular mad scientist with that little start up experiment. Feels a bit like tribbles.
I've got it up on the calendar at http://jonturino.com/calendar along with the December event. And I'll be adding the January 16th event that was posted last night in the next day or two.
If any of you are interested in getting some insight and inspiration, along with a bunch of practical help on your marketing plan for next year, please check out and register for the December 6th Marketing Plan Seminar/Workshop. http://jonturino.com/ai1ec_event/the-marketing-seminarworkshop-encore-edition/?instance_id=805
Does someone's "specialty" have to be in software, or can it be ALL interested Networkers?

Everyone is welcome, but the crowd trends toward tech ;)
Thanks, Rick. I'm really not the "tech" crowd, but I am a very motivated networker. :)
