Our next gathering will be our normal social get together. Think of it as a way to meet other group members and to enjoy locally what we basically do much of the time abroad: visiting the neighborhood tavern and making new friends! (Of course, we'll take the opportunity to network and share ideas on travel destinations, location-independent living, and whatnot.) Eugenio’s is the sort of neighborhood hang-out that I’ve enjoyed in countless locations. This place has a very nice selection of affordable wines and beer, arguably one of the best (personal sized) pizzas in PDX, along with authentic Italian salads and sandwiches. Although their menu is rather small, they make up in creating a good vibe for their customers. More on Eugenio’s at: www.eugenios.net.
