PLSO BeerLegger in Portland, OR (?)
Who's up for a BeerLegger in Portland during the PLSO Conference? It runs January 22 thru 24, 2020.
I'm thinking Wednesday is the best day, even though there's an exhibitor's reception at 5pm. Thursday evening is the scholarship auction, so that will go late (plus it's a lot of fun). Friday is out because we've tried that before but most people wanted to go home by then. So as of right now, I'm thinking Wednesday night at 6pm at a nearby hangout, maybe the restaurant/bar in the hotel. Here's the schedule: https://www.plso.org/2020Seminars
What do you think? Anyone want to do this? I'm game.
I was thinking that this would be a nice trip for me and SWMBO, especially to meet some of the renegades on here. That is, until SWMBO reminded me it is JANUARY at the North Pole where the Convention is. My winter wardrobe ensemble consists of one pair of long socks and a windbreaker. I wouldn't make it. I'd have the "Big One" as soon as I stepped off the plane. Be nice to plan for a Beerlegger somewhere in a central location though. (where snow shows up for a day or so only)
The temperatures are very mild in the Pacific Northwest. We have 2 weeks of Winter; 2 weeks of Summer; and the rest of the time it's Spring or Fall.
Today's high will be 51 with scattered showers.
Come on up, it'll be fun!
55/45 all week predicted. Gets a little windy up by the airport, but at least we won't have a repeat of the conference several years ago with a nasty "silver thaw" that made rinks and ice ruts out of the roads. Portland (puddletown) will be living up to its damp reputation though. Heck, we get used to it; I prefer it to blazing hot and/or blazing hot/humid.
