The headline says it all!
I’m having the meetup
way down in the Boston suburbs in Portland, because I think that Bangor’s relative isolation, while excellent in many ways, means that many fewer NC readers could attend if I held the meeting up here.
And I figure 6:00PM is time enough to drive to downtown Portland after work. (I’m assuming that parking in Portland is not an issue.) It’s also after Happy Hour.
Readers who will attend: I need help picking a venue! I did a little research on the internet, and here are a few places, but a recommendation from a local would be best, I think. The requirement, besides good drink and food, is that we be able to talk. So sports bars are out, very narrow rooms are out, and so on…
I looked at a few craft beer places, because apparently Portland, ME has a national reputation for beer:
1) Maybe: Novare Res Bier Café, 4 Canal Plaza, Suite 1, Portland, ME.
2) Or maybe: Liquid Riot, 250 Commercial St, Portland, ME
3) Or maybe: The King’s Head, 254 Commercial St, Portland, ME. (This is the Pierce Atwood building, the law firm that brought us the landfill! So the name is appropriate…)
So please confirm one of these, or suggest alternatives! And if you will attend, please say so in comments!
NOTE Perhaps the venue should have a French theme?
