« Portland Type Tuesday continues

It’s a week late this month, but our monthly Portland Type Tuesday social gathering continues with our fifth gathering. This month it is at:

7 pm
Tuesday, April 12th
Hawthorne Hophouse
4111 SE Hawthorne Boulevard
Portland, OR

I was part of a similar once-​​a-​​month gathering in Seattle, that met in a bar in the basement of a bookstore. It was fun and I missed it when I moved to Portland, so I started a monthly get-​​together here in Portland, which has been meeting since December 2010. I even created a Meetup group this month, sponsored by my employer, Extensis (who do WebINK and Suitcase Fusion).

We usually get together the first Tuesday evening of each month at 7 pm onwards. Folks gather at a local pub, have a brew, snack, and/​or meal, talk about things typographic, and sometimes bring an item of interest for show and tell. There are always one or two new people, and a large handful who have met before.

Please join us if you are interested in getting together to talk about fonts and typography, and perhaps share typographic items of interest (not a requirement to bring something!). Because it’s at a bar, you need to be over 21, though if a few people tell us this is an issue we could try a café or something instead. Other than that, people of all ages, genders and aesthetic backgrounds are welcome.

I will be the fellow in the green hat and red mad scientist glasses. There might be more books and such kicking around our party than you usually see in a bar. :) See you there!

    Looking forward to it.
