We gather at a local pub at 7 pm, have a brew, snack, and/or meal, talk about things typographic, and sometimes bring something for show and tell. People of all ages, genders and aesthetic backgrounds are welcome. Please join us! You can be a graphic designer, typographer, type designer, or just anybody interested in fonts and typography.

I was part of a similar once-a-month gathering in Seattle, that met in a bar in the basement of a bookstore. It was fun and I missed it when I moved to Portland, so I started the monthly get-together here, which has been meeting since December 2010.
