We'll be in the basement, which is toward the back, through the door with the flag, and down the stairs. (Occasionally, they put us in the back room instead of the basement -- look for signs or ask at the counter!) Grab some delicious pizza, calzones, or subs, and learn from local experts and enthusiasts.
The event is free to attend. (Buy your own food & drinks). :)
All are welcome, new comers and experts alike!
Come discuss recent events in the Bitcoin space, learn the basics, or buy/sell/trade.
This is a very casual meetup with no set agenda, feel free to arrive late.
We are now meeting at PDX Sliders in Sellwood. They serve great local food and beers but unfortunately they do not accept bitcoin... yet.
Hope to see you there!
