Billiards Anyone?

UPDATE:  please forgive me everyone....I've caught a cold and would like to postpone this meetup until next Sunday...I'm sorry!  I'd like to attend but don't feel very well and don't want to get anyone else sick.  So if we can play billiards next Sunday...or even Friday...I would be so grateful.  Sunday pool is free though at Back Stage Bar.

 So if that works lets go play billiards at Back Stage Bar on Sunday March 16th...it seems to be a good day for most who responded and it seems like getting a table would be easier on a Sunday early eve than on a Friday night...I think?  I've chosen 5 pm as a meeting time but we can change that if you all want a different time.

Here are the website links for Back Stage Bar and Greater Trumps:

Oh, and I just noticed that pool is free on Sundays...even better!


If you have any thoughts on details between now and then just post a comment.

And always remember that life is a journey...it really doesn't matter where you're going just make sure you're wearing a hat when you get there!

    Sunday sounds good, but "free" might make it crowded?

    March 7, 2014

    • Suzanne

      Yes I thought about that...I'll contact the bar and ask them what Sundays are like there.

  • Patricia P.

    Yes, the later weekend is fine...

    I seem to have come down with a cold and am not feeling very wonderful...I'm wondering if those who signed up for this event or are thinking of signing up would mind postponing it until the following weekend...either Friday or Sunday. There have been problems with the meetup site being down so I want to make sure this message gets out to everyone...I'm sorry for asking to postpone but I'd like to attend the event but don't want to get you all sick. Would that be okay with you to postpone?

    Love to come to my first hat meetup, but I am taking my sister to the airport from La Center that evening.

    I'm not sure if the email got sent to you all but I posted an update for this event with a day and time...yay.

    Okay...well it's not good karma to interlope with the Oscars...and I would hate for Dianne to not be able to join us...and I want Shae to be there too...So how does the following Sunday work for everybody....uh, March 9th? I'm thinking it would be easier to get a table on a Sunday eve instead of a Friday?? But otherwise Friday March 5th could be a choice.

      For me, March 7 or 9...I s'pose.

      February 15, 2014

    • Martin G.

      Either the 7th, or 9th would be great. And I love shuffleboard so the Backstage would be super.

    Same here. Just offered it as an idea who get into the Oscars and would like a potentially glamourous, dress up occasion for hat-wearing.

    In response to going to Oscar Night at the Hollywood Theater...personally it's not something I want to spend $25 on...I'd rather spend it actually interacting with my fellow hat wearing Portlanders doing something I can't do at home. I know the money goes to support the theater and its probably fun but my funds are limited so I have be a bit discriminating. However...if someone wants to organize and host the event I would certainly post it.

  • Suzanne

    Okay so the current question is...what evening between Monday March 3rd - Sunday March 9th would you like to play billiards on?

    Oscars aside (I don't watch them anymore, but in case others are into it.)--

    My life/business is such at the moment that any attempt to plan events is subject to change on short notice so can't commit to anything just yet.

    I've not been to Backstage Bar... looks more glamourous than Sam's, and being part of McMenamin's, can kind of predict the ambiance/food, etc so seems a "safe" option re: quality.

    I've been to Sam's a couple times since it became non-smoking. Not glamorous by any means, but a good solid neighbhorhood billiards place (and in my neighborhood). Haven't played there, but have eaten there a couple times. Foods decent, service was great--and they made an effort to accommodate my complicate food sensitivity list, so I would consider them a good option, too.

    Well, here's a thought (in addition to or instead of for this go around)--join the red carpet at the Hollywood Theater (in Portland) for their annual Oscars Party.

    Would be a great fancy hat event. (Unfortunately it's a $25 ticket/incl admission, 2 drinks, "guest the winners entry")

    Oh...Back Stage Bar does have a big screen TV...maybe they'll have the Oscars on.

    February 14, 2014

  • Patricia P.

    Yes, I s'pose either 2/28 or 3/2 would work for me. East side always works better for me, too. I don't think I want the responsibility of hosting at this time, tho. Unless you want to wait Suzanne until your kitty is well.

      Well...Tipsy Toes and I are taking this day by day right now...the Vet thinks he has a sizable mass in his small intestine as she described it. So we're dealing with one of those challenges that life can throw you...but Tipsy Toes fought off three coyotes two summers ago and survived that attack so he's a pretty awesome dude! I think we should schedule the event and trust that everything will be good!

    I'd be interested in learning to play billiards. March 2 is the Oscars and I have a previous commitment for that day as well as for Feb. 28. I'd be available (at this point in time) any Wed, Thurs, or Fri in March.

    February 14, 2014

    • Patricia P.

      Oops...yes, don't want to miss the Oscars.

      February 14, 2014

  • Candace M.

    I've never been to The Back Stage barr; sounds like fun to me. March 2nd would be my choice for the day.

    February 14, 2014

  • Emily N.

    I'm definitely interested, and if this venue doesn't work, I'd recommend Sam's Billiards in Hollywood - great atmosphere, good (cheap) food and drink and very nice staff. Good luck with your kitty, and happy V-Day.
