First Thursday Art Walk in the Pearl

Lets get together and walk the Art Galleries in the Pearl! Admission is free! I will have a map to provide people so we can travel as a group and enjoy the different paintings / exhibits.

 

Afterwards we can decide to go to a HH if there is an interest, this event is weather permitting.

  • Arun R.

    Hey.. I jus moved here last weekend and has the same question as Ann.. Is the city center parking the most convenient parking nearby?

    June 6, 2013

    • Michael M.

      In my humble, opinion, I would say no way. Somewhere in the Pearl. You can probably find a spot closer to Everett in one of the garages or along the road. The meters are free after 7pm, unless it has been changed, so you would likely only need to feed a meter for like an hour.

      Hi Arun. Street parking is your best bet, if you're going to be parking at 6pm or later. You'll only have to pay for any hour, which is pretty reasonable. Only problem is street parking can be difficult to find, so may not be super convenient from that perspective.

    I definitely want to come and check out First Thursday and meet some new Portland friends! Unfortunately, I don't usually get to escape work until 630p. How can I track down the group, say around 7pm? :D

    best strategy: have a few cocktails (if youre into that) and a bit of food beforehand.. head out, keep an open mind.. be approachable, and interact.. the quality and originality of the art at these things have been getting better and better over the last 2 years.. there are a TON of interesting people.. sometimes i park my motorbike on the street and just people watch.. its great fun!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
