Help support your MeetupChip in
Help me add a little pizzazz to the Portland scene...put a hat on your head and join my hat-wearing social club! We'll do all the fun things the others are doing...eating, drinking, schmoozing...but we'll do it while wearing a hat. What a great way to express your unique personality and make a lasting impression on the people you meet!
It won't be stuffy or stodgy...there won't be rules about what you can wear. Your hats can be the classics like fedoras, porkpies, cloches and caps...or you can surprise us with your own unique style. The goal will be to have fun exploring Portland and meeting new people...and doing it with a little color and flair.
I'm a hat-maker with a particular affection for vintage clothing and snazzy dazzy fashion. I created this group to make it easy and fun for people to wear hats and maybe get Portlanders to dress up a bit. One day I hope to open an actual hat-wearing social club where hat lovers can mingle and participate in all sorts of events involving hats and hat-wearing but in the meantime this Meetup group is a great beginning. Our events will be as unique as the hats on our heads...anything from a simple outing at a Portland eatery or board games in the park to more detailed events that involve a theme...perhaps a Madmen cocktail party, maybe a day at the races or how about traveling the Street Car or train in vintage attire. At this time there will be no membership dues but some of the more elaborate outings may require a participation fee to cover some costs. Everyone is welcome as long as you wear a hat 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!
