Last dinner went very well in spite of the weather. We had 10 or 11 folks show and some really great discussions going on. We did talk a bit about alternating locations for the dinner. Everyone seemed to agree that it would be a good idea. So let's give it a try. I think we are going to go with odd months will be held at MacTarnahans Taproom in NW Portland. For even months we are going to try Max's Fanno Creek Pub in Tigard. Time etc will stay the same. Hope to see you there!

Okay, so this is what it will look like.

July dinner this Wed, July 18th, at the Pyramid Taproom. Stop on by, talk bikes, make plans for a ride, get help with a problem or just sit around and shoot the breeze with like minded people.

Never fear, this is merely a social gathering of riders for the purpose of talk and friendship. There is no sales pitch to join any kind of club etc. But many of us do belong to various clubs if you are curious about what the clubs do.

Dinner this Wed, August 15th, at our new southern location, John Barleycorns, one of the many McMenamins brew pubs. This location should not have the parking issues the other location suffered from and the service while I was there was top notch. The happy hour here ends at 6pm, so if you are cheap, I mean thrifty, try to arrive before 6 to get the cheap eats. Other wise, stop by when you can and talk bikes, make plans for a ride, get help with a problem or just sit around and shoot the breeze with like minded people.

Dinner for October will be October 17 at the TAPROOM. I tried moving the location on occasion to see if others would show up, but it really did not work. It seems even for the Taproom interest has worn off after three years. August saw no riders show up other than family members of mine, thanks. September saw two people show up but due to work I arrived late and missed finding them in the restaurant. So we are going back to the original model of the Taproom each month.

HOWEVER, I am asking that if you are planning on showing up, please let me know by the Monday prior to the dinner (email below). I have not asked for RSVPs before and I normally have not made reservations due to the unknown number of folks that would show up. That was part of the issue last month. SO now I am asking that if you plan on making the dinner, please let me know so I can make a reservation at the location. This way, if at least someone shows up on time, the reservation will be met and held and other arrivals will be directed to the proper table. If you don't RSVP but find that you can suddenly make, please do feel free to stop by, I won't turn you away. Be advised though, if I don't get any RSVPs, I may not even show up. No reason to keep doing this if no one is interested.

The time will be left at 5:30 so early arrivers can take advantage of happy hour that ends at 6. Normally folks hang out until at least 7, so if you arrive a bit later, usually someone is there. That all being said, I may be in Tualatin until 5 this day, so may be late myself depending on traffic.

So there we are, dinner Oct 17 at the Taproom.

What: Portland Meet & Greet
When: Third Wednesday of each month
Time: Around 5:30pm

Hope to see you there by car, truck, and hopefully some by BMW.

Dinner for February, the 20th is going to be at the Lucky Lab location in NW Portland at 1945 NW Quimby. This location has pizza, sandwiches, soups and salads, hopefully something for everyone. Time is going to be around 5:30 or when you can make it. If you think you can make it, please let me know. I won't hold you to it, but would like to have an idea of how many may be there.

Time: 5:30
Where: Lucky Lab 1945 NW Quimby St Portland.

And once again, this is not a club activity. This is just a dinner invite for like minded BMW riders to get together, talk bikes and what ever else is on your mind.

Holy cow, where has the month gone! Looks like the third Wednesday is already here! Time for another dinner. Let's try the NW Lucky Lab again. Not so sure about the time though, I have to be working until 1730 on Wed out past the airport so imagine I can't get there until 6 at the earliest. So we can make the time 6 and if you get there earlier, more power to you. I will be there though and looking for others.

Lucky Lab brew pub is at 1945 NW Quimby in Portland. See you Wednesday!

Portland area dinner is coming up this Wednesday, April 17th. This month we are back at MacTarnhan's Taproom at 2730 NW 31st Ave Portland, OR 97210.
Why back here, why not. Good food, easy to find and plenty of parking.

Arrive between 5:30 and 6 if you want to eat cheap as happy hour ends at 6 and they are serious about it ending when Mickey's big hand touches the 6

Portland Dinner coming up this Wednesday, May 15. We are going to try a another new place this month..........the Golden Valley Brewery off of Bethany and Cornell. Did a recon here a few weeks ago, plenty of parking, great seating inside and large outside seating area too. Sorry, I don't remember what their happy hour is, but let's aim for 5:30pm as a rough start time. I will try to be there by then. So who's gonna be there?

Golden Valley Brewery

I anticipate there being a dinner this month, it would be on the 19. The only issue being I am the one who usually posts about the dinners on the different forums. This month though I will be out of town on a road trip. I hope to find someone else to fill in for me. Keep watching here please or the BMW Riders of Oregon facebook page.

Monthly dinner for June should be this Wednesday June 19th. It is in question though as I won't be here. That is the first day of our 15 day road trip. So is anyone willing or able to "run" the dinner this month? By run I mean be there.

If the dinner goes, it will be at the

Golden Valley Brewery
1520 Northwest Bethany Boulevard
Beaverton, OR 97006

Normal time is 5:30 so the early birds can take advantage of happy hour.

If interested, you may also want to check out the BMWRO (BMW Riders of Oregon) facebook page as that page tends to get responses to the posts.

See you all next month.

Contact Us - Golden Valley Restaurant & Brewery

Time: 5:30 pm or whenever you can get there.

Happy hour runs until 6pm, so arrive early to save.

And remember, this is not a sanctioned club event. This merely a chance to have dinner with like minded people. Anyone can attend.

Monthly dinner for August is this Wednesday the 21st. We are still at GVB as they have been accommodating and the food has been good.

I plan on being there about 5:30 to take advantage of happy hour. If you can't make it that early, show up when you can.

If you don't see any obvious group of riders, ask at the hostess stand for the BMW motorcycle group. I don't make reservations since I never know how many will show, but we usually let the hostess know who we are so new folks can find us.

Hope to see you there.

Dinner time again and a great time to make new friends and talk about old rides.

When, this Wednesday, October 16, 2013.

Time, I try to get there around 5:30 so I can order cheaply off of the happy hour menu. Quite a few folks don't make it until around 6 though due to that pesky work thing.

Where, the Golden Valley Brewery
1520 Northwest Bethany Boulevard
Beaverton, OR 97006

All are welcome. This is not a club event of any nature. It is merely an opportunity and reason to have dinner out with like minded people.

Hope to see you there.
