OK. Here is the plan, thus far:

Kilted Brewer, PicoBrew and I will be meeting at the Lucky Labrador NW at about 5:30ish on Friday.

Lucky Labrador Beer Hall
1945 NW Quimby
Portland, OR 97209
phone: 503-517-4352

We will proceed to the SE, through downtown, evading the law, opportunistically looting and pillaging, recruiting like minded HBTers and shutting down any phony green-bottle-beer chumps that look to be served.

We'll be documenting our travails via the twit.

How is she with the Trident?
We are a bit soft if someone comes at us with nets and knives.

May not be good with the Trident...but she trains in BJJ, Kickboxing, Submission Wrestling and Judo so we've got the Ninjas covered.

Wish I could join you - have a family birthday party that night. Have fun and enjoy Portland.

PS. I would avoid McMenamins - beer is ok - food is not. To many other great locations.

IMHO I disagree, it all depends on location and who is cooking that night when it comes to a chain as large as McMen's. Although I will admit I have had great food and just ok food while dining at McMen's. However, I think all their brews are worth trying at least once.

I will be at the Lucky Lab @ 5:30 probably won't be able to travel any further than that but would like to grab one brew and add to my list of HBT's I have met.

Yeah, McMen isn't the end all be all, but for out of towners I think it's a good place to hit at least once in your life. Never had a bad meal there, but I go there knowing it's hit and miss. Part of the charm as the say.

I am so jealous! One of these days, maybe next year in my first year in retirement, I'm going out there and demanding a beer cruise.

Keep us all posted, but I'll be offline due to my own travels on Friday night. I'm planning in meeting the one and only Pumbaa in person on Friday, so I can add to my HBT lifelist, too!

I'll probably hit the McMenamins in Salem on Saturday for lunch on my way to Lyons.
