This is a mostly singles type happy hour event hosted by Troy who wrote me:
I wanted to invite you to an "all meetup" event I'm throwing on August 23. I've already posted it in 20s/30s, New and Not So New In Town, and Anyone Can Join. So, you can take a look at the event in those groups, if you like.
I welcome you to copy and post the event in your group. I also welcome you and/or your organizers to come out and participate.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
Thanks! Troy http://www.meetup.com/Anyone-Can-Join/events/130218722/
I (Joanne) will be out of town on the 23rd but I wanted to post this for anyone else who wants to go. This is Troy's event so it's not officially a POAC event - but it might be fun if you want to go. Remember don't drink and drive and if you drink, drink responsibly.
So here are the details:
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.
