Portland-area folks: I’m finally over the plague and ready to organize a micro meetup. I set up a Doodle. Even if next week is not good, please fill out which days you prefer for an ongoing meetup. (Next week Tuesday is Core Audio karaoke, so that’s out.) @verso @cheesemaker @jw

@macgenie I've been meaning to find a good way to re-start the Homebrew Website Club meetups in Portland this year! Maybe we could combine them? We typically do every 2 weeks or monthly on Wednesdays.

@aaronpk That's a great idea! Do you want to meet up next Wednesday?

@macgenie Yeah! That'd be great! I don't have a space for it anymore though.

@aaronpk @verso and I were trying to come up with the equivalent of the Green Dragon, since we are calling it Microblog and Microbrew! I like Lucky Lab, but it is admittedly noisy and the food options are meh.

@macgenie Does the new Rogue not work for meetups anymore? I've only been there once since the change. There's also Loyal Legion maybe?

@aaronpk I haven't been to Rogue with a group, but it could work. Maybe we should try that. How many Homebrewers would you expect. I think the Microbloggers will be a small contingent to start. @verso: thoughts?

@macgenie We were usually around 4-7 people last year, and did just monthly meetups. Part of the reason I haven't re-started them this year is it's a lot of work without a co-host!

@aaronpk Let's plan on meeting next Wednesday, and we'll figure out a good place by then. I think Homebrew and Microblog are an excellent fit, and I would be honored to co-host!

@macgenie @aaronpk @verso I went to Modern Times last night (old Commons space) and really loved it. Not sure about the space but I think it’d work if we don’t have like 30 people (there are even couches!). Hope it goes without saying: I’d like to join!

@macgenie Awesome! Looking forward to it! I'll set up event pages for it on indieweb.org and calagator! Where do you normally post about it?

@macgenie Do you have any existing event copy/description you've used in the past? Also what should we call this? Homebrew Microblog Meetup? 😂

@aaronpk Hmm. We haven't had meetup yet. I liked the idea of calling it Microbrew & Microblog as an homage to Beer & Blog. But Homebrew Microblog would get across the idea. No template yet!
