I saw there's a RadiantCMS user meetup set for 7PM on Thursday of RailsConf 2007. I'd be very interested in meeting up with the rest of you. Any idea on how many might show? Chris

I created the gathering. I wish there were an easy way to RSVP for them... until then we can get an informal count from the list. I'm also not familiar with Portland; any recommendations for where to meet? Sean

+1 I'll be there... Was just about to ask if such a thing existed.

It's my home town, though I haven't lived there for awhile... I could identify a place if nobody else has a really good idea?

I live in Portland and look forward to meeting folks. The Doug Fir is always a fun place to meet, it's a bar on Burnside and close/easy to find. Would that work or are we looking for a quite place?

Sounds good, Michael, as long as it can fit all of us! Can you provide an address? Sean

Address: 830 E Burnside St Portland, OR 97214 Map: http://www.google.com/maps? f=q&hl=en&q=830%2Be%2Bburnside%2Bstreet,%2Bportland&ie=UTF8&z=15&om=1&iw loc=A Site: http://www.dougfirlounge.com/location.html (darn it's image heavy) I guess "all of us" is the real question...

For what it's worth I can vouch for the Doug Fir, the best of Portland hip. It's a fun place and not a long ways from the conference center, though a drive. That's my vote. We'll all have lots of quiet rooms later in the conference so I'm all forward a little commotion to kick things off. Look forward to putting faces to names. Loren

Could you guys tell me if I will be able to go there from Ukraine? I am really interested in Ruby conference. Thank, Alex Pivtorak Loren Johnson ?????:

Hi Alex, RailsConf in Portland is sold-out. In september there is a RailsConf in Berlin. That is probably a bit closer for you as well.

What about the JCafe? It's close and they have wifi. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=l&hl=en&q=wifi&near=... -- John Long http://wiseheartdesign.com

If I can't get there quickly on a bus or other transit, I can't see going. I won't have a car. Besides, if there's going to be drinking (say what?) somewhere within walking/crawling distance would be excellent. Chris

I guess what one considers 'walking distance' is relative. It's about 1/2 mile walk to DougFir from the convention center. Walking in Portland is quite nice (when it's not raining). http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=792303 John, I haven't heard of the JCafe? My other 2 suggestions would be: 1. Rose and Raindrop (has wifi and is large) http://www.roseandraindrop.com/ 2. Produce Row (not sure about wifi but has a *great* beer selection) http://www.producerowcafe.com/ http://www.google.com/maps? f=q&hl=en&q=830%2Be%2Bburnside%2Bstreet,%2Bportland&ie=UTF8&z=15&om=1&iw loc=A However both of these suggestions seem to be about the same distance as the Doug Fir. I'll let you all decide. -MJ

I'm voting for Doug Fir (looks nice), although I hear John's plea about Wifi... do they have it? If not, we should probably do something else. Sean

Looks like we have wireless: http://www.wifipdx.com/spots/Doug_Fir_RestaurantBar
