Announcing a new Meetup for PDX Metro Social and Friendship Network!
What: New-in-Town Series: Art Walk, 1st Thursdays in the Pearl!
When: May 7,[masked]:00 PM
Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
Meetup Description: I've been delighted to see so many people who are new to Portland join our group. Warm welcome to you from the City of Roses. Meetup helped me get my bearings when I was new to Portland not so long ago!
You guys inspired me - I'm creating a series of events called "New-in-Town" that will occur maybe once a month or so? for our members who are new to Portland. And feel free to join us even if you've been around for a while! Tell our new-in-towns about your favorite Portland destinations. They'll appreciate it!
If you haven't experienced the yuppie, wine soaked chaos that is the "Art Walk" in the Pearl district on First Thursdays, allow me to introduce you! The Pearl District is in the northwest section of downtown. Small to medium sized art galleries abound, are FREE on first Thursdays if not always, and their installations vary from the local and obscure to the international and classic (for example, our tour will include the Lawrence Gallery which exhibits original sketches by Dali and Picasso...again, free of charge.) Other galleries feature the local artists who are sculpting Portland's art scene as we speak - PUN intended!
The gallery tour (a.k.a. "artwalk") is a Portland fave... many galleries have wine available, and we'll end the evening at a suitably fashionable destination... or... else... something like Deschutes or Henry's, depending on majority vote.
Unleash your inner art snob... it's a PDX tradition!
No RSVP limit on this one - it's public. If you think you'll be late, just email me ahead of time and I'll send you my cell so you can rendez-vous with the group, wherever we are! "Maybes" are fine, and guests are welcomed
