Meet Portland Mayor Sam Adams at Beer and Blog tonight
When you’ve built a gathering of interesting people that is consistently lauded as the best spot to meet and greet folks in the Portland tech and startup scene, people start to take notice. And that’s exactly what’s happening to Beer and Blog, the weekly happy hour for the Portland tech scene started by Justin Kistner.
What kind of people are noticing Beer and Blog now? Well, Portland Mayor Sam Adams for one. Yep, that’s right. The Mayor will be showing up tonight to hang out with the Beer and Blog crowd.
Who knows? Maybe this whole Beer and Blog thing might catch on.
We’re honored by a visit from the Mayor of the city we love so much. We believe it’s the spirit of community that Portland, Oregon is known for that has kept Beer and Blog humming along, growing steady and strong like we have the past two years. Portland is Weird, it’s awesomesauce, and a visit from Sam Adams is pretty much a Seal of Portland Approval in my eyes.
I think this marks the first time that any politician currently in office has graced a Beer and Blog anywhere. That means, it’s a historical event. And the end of the second anniversary celebration.
Sniff sniff. Our little Beer and Blog is all growed up.
So, get your seats early. Like you might want to leave right now. This is sure to be one of the most well attended Beer and Blogs ever. And don’t worry. The Mayor has a day job too. So he probably won’t be rolling in until 5:30 or so.
As always, Beer and Blog Portland will be held at the Green Dragon. Things usually get going right around 4:00 PM and wrap up around whenever.
