It’s no Beer and Blog but it is an opportunity to meet a chunk of the Portland startup community

There was a time, not so long ago, when the Portland startup community used to gather on a regular basis at a happy hour called Beer and Blog. It was a time to catch up with friends. A time to make new connections. A place to send folks when they were looking to get better connected to the community.

I miss you

Hey. How have you been? It’s been a while. You’re looking good. And that new thing that you’re working on…? Yeah. It’s awesome. Really. So cool that you’re doing that. But honestly, we’ve all been so busy I feel like we’ve lost touch.

You know, all IRL and shit. Read More
