Drinking With Mikey - Tuesday, June 26
« on: April 02, 2018, 12:27:32 AM »
The pre-conference event Drinking With Mikey is currently looking like the best thing available on Tuesday afternoon.

Looks like it could start at early as 2pm and we would need a stop every 60-90 minutes. As I have never been to Portland before suggestions for stops are appreciated. Perhaps the first stop could be further out and the last close enough to walk back to the conference hotel.

PS: If a great pre-conference event pops up it may supersede Drinking with Mikey! ;)

So it appears this is actually happening.

Working on an agenda with rough timing. Travel will be on foot, public transport, and/or Uber, basically get there however you can.

Not sure exactly how we will make this work out, I may share my location since I am confident the schedule will be altered somewhere during the process. I may post a Google Map live link to this thread so you can see where we are in the process. Also opened to suggestions.

There's also a LA pub crawl planning on happening during that period:

1-2 Hair of the Dog.
2-3 Rogue Pilot Brewery.
3-4 Cascade Brew House.
4-5 Schillings Cider House. 50 ciders on tap.

Those last three are really close together. All are close to the streetcar line.

I don't think my flights will get me to a point to be started before 2. Currently thinking of HOTD from 2-3:30 and then set off from there. IME an hour at a really great place might not be enough. We are still scouting locations and this may become an exercise in use of the Hop Fastpass and hoofing it.

Currently eyeballing:
Wayfinder
Natian
Base Camp
Cascade
Scout Beer
Baerlic

If done in order they are about an 8-10 minute walk between and in the same area. Figured it would be easier to stumble from one to the other. We might make Cascade a 90 minutes stop as well.
