The wife unit is attending a horsey event in Vancouver, WA and I'm tagging along.

She will be doing her horsey stuff and I will be doing anything to avoid it.

I love Portland and plan on seeing some more of it but I was wondering if any of you guys wanted to meet up for a beer and whatnot on Saturday evening? Thinking about The Alibi since the Mrs and I love the place.

I'll be there March 1st, 2nd and 3rd but the 2nd is really the most open day I have.

Let me know.

Shawn

March 2nd is the first ORSCCA autocross of the season and it's at Portland International Raceway. I'll be there in Project Porsche for it's first SCCA event. Beers after than autocross #2 is the following day. I'm certain we could catch you a co-drive in something...

I love the Alibi too. Have you been there since they changed owners?

Yes, we were there just after. 

It seemed like they cleaned the place up. Not in a "getting rid of the clients" way but I mean physically cleaning it.

Has it changed now?

Coincidentally, the Salem Flat Track calendar has "Horseshow" listed for that weekend, so I should be free.

Nope! They do have a karaoke brunch now though. That's the biggest change I've seen.

Cool. 

I'm going to be busy with my own stuff during the day but up for food, drinks and B.S. in the evening for sure. 

Appreciate the co-drive offer Javelin but I'm going to have to pass, thanks very much anyway!

That’s my Wedding Anniversary weekend, so I suspect I’ll be busy.  :) 

If I have some time though, I’ll try to make it out for beers and grub.  I’ll keep an eye on this thread to see what gets planned as we get closer to the date.

And you need to have some talent to get on the mic! The last karaoke I went to there was better than half the concerts I've seen. Good times!

Alright, heading out in the morning so I'll be away from the forum.

See you guys there, look for the 40-something guy with a ponytail. My wife has red and blue hair.

If you need to get in touch, my e-mail works, just pm me on here.

Awesome! I've got a beard like every other hipster but my co-driver has red hair. We'll be wearing stupid Blipshift shirts, too.

You missed the part where Shawn mud-wrestled with a grizzly bear while singing "Losing my Religion", and that was only the second best part of the night!

Lol...

In Canada we call that "Tuesday night".

Thanks for a good time guys. As per your suggestion, we checked out Vancouver, WA a bit and found a quiet little place called "Underbar".

They're trying really hard to be a speakeasy / traditional cocktail lounge but they're not there yet. Some better decor, dim the lights, bring in a piano and they'll be set.
