What we're about

Easy going group of self-proclaimed BadAsses. New to Meetup? Fear not. We make all new members feel like old friends. So say 'fuck it', get off your ass, get out of the house, and come hang with some kick-ass people.

From volunteering to hiking to boating to happy hours to house parties... we do it all. Our only criteria: you must have thick skin and be able to handle sarcasm. And some profanity. And off-colored humor. This group could easily be called the Smart Asses. Seriously.

While we will still maintain our Meetup.com page, we are moving away from Meetup.com for managing our events and using our Facebook group to manage our events. Come on in, the water is warm. And not for the wrong reason. Cheers.

Let's grab drinks and then go trick or treating!

Kells Brew Pub

Are you too old to go trick or treating? You're never too old for anything in this life, even diapers!

Yes as an adult, you have a job that pays you, then you can take that money to the store and buy a huge bag of candy for under $15. Plus you save yourself the walk.

I haven't done this in ages but the whole point is to go out, do something and enjoy it.

Perhaps you want to relive your childhood experience, maybe you want free candy, maybe it's Sunday night and you have nothing better to do.

My plan is to knock back some drinks, and burst out into the streets of Portland and give these people something to laugh and enjoy.

A group of grown ass adults knocking on doors for candy.

Sounds silly? You bet it is.

If you dont want to go asking for candy, just think of it as a city hike with a bunch of buzzed adults letting their inner child out.

You can even pretend to be that responsible adult chaperoning our adventure.

At the end, don't forget to check our harvest of candy to make sure it's safe and someone didn't try to poison it!

So we're meeting at the bar and will set out at 6:30pm. Feel free to join us at the bar and don't feel bad if you want to skip the city hike.

This event is being cross promoted in 9 other groups: PDX Anything Goes!, The happy hour club, /R/ Portland meetup, Portland travel buddies and fun events, Portland travel fun and activities, Art Geeks, The Beervana Experience, Young Professionals Social Club, and Uniquely Portland.

1st Thursday Art walk in the pearl!

Froelick Gallery

This monthly event was one of my favorite to attend pre-pandemic. Things have changed so let's see if we can make this interesting while winging it.

My proposal is for the group to start on the map at location #16, Froelick gallery.

You will have up to 15 minutes before we depart. I'll have a list of art galleries on our destination list posted in the comments section the day of, that if you miss us, it wouldn't take much for you to run into us.

You can always look for me as well. 😏

It's usually very easy to find me.

My goal is to hit as many as I can along a somewhat linear path, avoiding galleries that are too far off path.

We will likely end up in the area close to gallery #9 & #11.

Afterwards, we will go somewhere close by for drinks and chat.
