On the heels of a wildly successful event on Wednesday, get ready for a Portland Lunch 2.0 first and second.
Well, they’ve recently moved again, not very far, and Steve has more he wants to tell you about what the OTBC has been doing, including at least a couple juicy announcements.
Now, for the first.
Because heading out to Beaverton for lunch isn’t spectacularly convenient for people who work in Portland and with a hat tip to those of you who rarely or never make it to Beer and Blog (@beerandblog) on Fridays due to westerly commute, we’re trying something new, a happy hour.
So, if you’re driving near Beaverton on February 23 in the evening, between say 4:30 and 7:30-ish, why not stop by and take the edge off with some networking?
Of course, you’re welcome to make definite plans too. It’s a happy hour regardless of how you get there or why.
A Lunch 2.0 happy hour isn’t without precedent. The Seattle Lunch 2.0 chapter does evening events, one of which yours truly and several others drove up to attend, but this will be our first non-lunch Lunch 2.0. It should be an interesting and potentially trend-setting event.
Here’s the skinny:
When: February 23, 2011 from 4:30 PM to 7:30 PM
Upcoming Portland Lunch 2.0s
Stay tuned for a couple announcements. Otherwise, if you’re interested or know someone who might be interested in hosting a Lunch 2.0, drop a comment, hit me up on Twitter (@jkuramot), etc.

Big thanks to all the hosts who have hosted or plan to host Lunch 2.0. As with the majority of the tech events in Portland, sponsors make them happen. So, we humbly thank you.
