Title: Portland Oregon Metro Area Dinner
Post by: Sit on February 18, 2013, 11:20:17 PM
For those that have seen this before, yes the dinners are still going on.  They have changed locations some and are still trying to figure out if they will survive or not, but they are still happening for now.  So:

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?

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.

This month's Portland dinner falls on the eve of the rally, July 17, what better way to start the activities than with a dinner?

Let's do the same time as before at the same location:

1520 NW Bethany Road
Beaverton, OR 97006

http://www.goldenvalleybrewery.com/contact.aspx (http://www.goldenvalleybrewery.com/contact.aspx)

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.

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.

With just a blink of an eye, and twitch of a nose, December is half way in the bag and the Winter solstice is just a week away.  That means we have made it half way and Spring is just around the corner and hopefully better riding weather.  Also means time for another dinner!!  Come hang out with other riders and share plans of upcoming trips or anything else you may want to talk about.

As a side note, it is December and the weather can be sketchy and holiday parties can fill up a restaurant fast.  So, weather, use your best common sense.  If its slippery, snowy, not safe, stay home.  It's just dinner.  As for the restaurant, I put a reservation in for 1745-1800 under my name and/or BMW motorcycles.

The new year has come and it seems to be getting light earlier and staying light later. Riding season (good riding) can't be too far away! How about dinner to talk about what Santa brought us and what we plan on doing this coming summer. Also maybe talk about what if anything we can do next holiday season for those less fortunate.

When, this Wednesday, January 15, 2014!

Time, 5:45 (happy hour ends at 6) or whenever work and traffic allow you to get there. We are usually there for at least 1.5 hours.

For those that thought about coming to the dinner last night...you missed a great time.  Fourteen people made it (six on bikes) which pretty much stressed the wait staff since we kept adding tables and chairs to the group.  I think we pretty much owned the dinning room part of the restaurant for the most of the evening.  Everyone seemed to have a great time talking bikes, sharing stories or just meeting new people.  It never ceases to amaze me the stories and lives people have led.    I think we could have sat there for a few hours more and not even come close to a pause in the conversations.  But time rolled on and people had to get home.  Hopefully everyone can come back next month for another round of fun, food and talk.  Keep your fingers crossed and maybe we can sit on the patio around the fire.

There was talk last night about an email list so folks would not have to rely on the forums to remember about the dinner.  If you would like to pm me your email, I can add you to a group.  I won't spam you.  Only one email a month as a reminder about the dinner.

Brian

Post by: motodude on March 20, 2014, 10:58:01 PM
I missed last month. Just forgot.  So, I added it to my calendar at work. I won't forget now.

It was a great evening,
Tom
Title: Re: Portland Oregon Metro Area Dinner
Post by: Sit on March 20, 2014, 11:01:15 PM
It was.  I think we should aim for taking over the patio area once the weather turns nice.  Would be great to sit out there around the fire and chat and eat.
Title: Re: Portland Oregon Metro Area Dinner
Post by: Sit on April 13, 2014, 06:42:05 PM
Dinner time again! Was hoping for some warmer weather so we could partake of the patio and fire pit at the GVB, but weather report does not look that promising in terms of warm weather. On the up side though, the rotating tap this month is Carlton Kolsch. Kolsch style beer is not always available and if you enjoy trying different brews, Kolsch is one worth trying.

So here are the details:

Well that's too bad that you can't make it.  I can't really make it easier...........maybe some other time.


Dinner time again, I think.  Crazy how fast time goes by and how many things compete for your time.

Any way, yes, its the third Wednesday again and time for dinner.  I won't be there though, so you are all on your own.  With any luck, come Wednesday night I will be in Colorado.  So eat, talk and have fun.

Okay sports fans, special dinner coming up.  A group of riders is coming in to Portland from Alaska.  A portion of the group is then heading on to Tennessee.  The group will be in town on July 5th and has asked if anyone wants to have dinner with some of them on the 5th to hear about their trip etc.

So we are meeting at 6 pm at the Thirsty Lion at Washington Square.  Feel free to join us if you would like!!

 New year is here and time to start the dinners again.

I think for at least this dinner we will return to our regular place, the Golden Valley Brewery.  They have been good to us and the food is generally tasty and fairly priced.  If we want though, we can discuss other locations that we can try.

So here we go, Wednesday, January 21st.

Are these dinners only held on 3rd Wednesdays?  I'd like to attend one soon, but I'm working this coming 3rd Wednesday.  I'll make November though!  Just bought a 94 k1100rs and have SO many questions.  Love to hang out!

Yes, the dinners are a regularly scheduled event. Sorry that Wednesdays don't always work for you.  Unfortunately October will be our least dinner of the year.  The dinners will start up again in January in prep for the coming spring.  November and December are just slow months with few people having time to attend a dinner.  Restaurants are also hard to get into.  So please keep watching here and hope to see you in January.

Come eat and talk future rides. Don't forget your MOA mileage forms if you need them signed.

I don't know about you all, but I am not ready for summer to be over.  It's like someone threw a switch all of a sudden.  Let's console each other over dinner and talk about final rides of the year or future rides, weather be damned.

I will be down in Salem until about 5, so I doubt I will be there at 6, but I will try.

It's the only one I know of.  The state club just doesn't do monthly things.  They do quarterly, but that is it and those tend to be around Eugene.  If you know there are bikes in your area, pick a place, day and time and post it on as many forums as you can and see who shows. That's how this got started.

Dinner time again, first of the year!! Hope everyone had an enjoyable couple of months "off" and that everyone is surviving the unusual winter we have been having. [/size]We will start the year doing the same thing we did last year, dinner each month on the third Wednesday, at the same location. If there is a desire to try somewhere else etc, bring it to the dinner and let's talk. Change is always good, well for dinner at least.For those who may be new to the group or just now finding time to drop by, these are pretty informal dinners, actually not even close being any kind of formal. No club requirements, no fees (other than your own dinner tab) and no requirements period other than a fondness of bikes and a desire to have dinner with other folks who like bikes.

Late post, but oh well.  Missed last month due to rally and well, forgot.  So here it is.  Going to try something new this month and go to the Bethany Public House.  GVB was getting old, so when it gets old, try something new.  Other than bikes, you don't get rid of old bikes, you just buy new and keep the old...anyway..........
[/size]August 16th, 2017......
[/size]Bethany Public House
4840 NW Bethany Blvd
Portland, OR 97229

[/size]Basically NW Bethany and NW Laidlaw.  I might suggest using Bethany and not 143/Kaiser to get there. I think that route gets busy. Don't know though, Bethany may be a crappy route too.  Its Portland after all.
[/size]Let's still aim for 5:45 and see what happens.  All of the other stuff is the same.........

So here we are again, time for dinner.  Let's try the same place as last month and see how it does again.  I will be in Salem until 5pm, so I most likely will not make it at 5:45, but will get there as soon as I an.  So,

Where has the year gone and most importantly, how did the prime riding season disappear so quickly?  This Wednesday's dinner will be our last dinner for the year.  With the weather not cooperating, with holidays coming up, its just easier to stay home for the next two months rather than venturing out fighting the dark, wet nights and the Prius crowded and dangerous streets of Portland.


Dinner this time will be at a new place, just to try it out.  We all ride for the adventure and the unknown yes, let's live on the wild side and go somewhere new.


When: Wednesday, October 18, 2017.


Location:  Verde Cocina
                5515 SW Canyon Ct,
                Portland, OR 97221
There are multiple locations, please go to the correct one!




Time: We can still aim for 5:45 as their happy hour runs until 6pm.  Don't know what is on their happy hour menu, but if you are frugal it may be an option

Ok sports fans, its time to get the dinners going again. We took a few more months off longer than planned, but given the goofy weather, maybe not a bad thing. Besides, maybe it will finally get nice and we can actually ride vs drive to dinner. I have looked around to try to find a place that was not too far out, too close in, too far off the highway, too small, too large etc etc. Best I could come up with for now is the Si Senor off of Cedar Hills and Barnes. So let's try there and see what happens.
When: Wednesday, March 21, 2018.

For May 16, 2018.  We currently are not going to a regular place and last month's turn out was rather low.  We had a great time chatting, but still a dismal turn out.  This month I have to work on Wednesday evening so NO DINNER this month.  Next month we hope to pick back up and will either be going to the new Bargarten (think Gustav's but with a "beer tent-ish feel) or to the BG Food Cartel (food carts with indoor seating).  If you have a preference or experience at either location, please let me know.  I have been to Bargarten and think it would work for the group, but they do not split checks. I have no experience with the food carts, looks like a pretty good selection of eats though.  Let me know what you all think.  See you next month.
Title: Re: Portland Oregon Metro Area Dinner
Post by: Sit on June 19, 2018, 08:04:36 PM
Sorry folks, once again this month a prior commitment is on the same night as the dinner.  I was hoping to have it this time at the Bargarten in Beaverton :2905 SW Cedar Hills Blvd, Beaverton, OR 97005.  Now this is not my gig entirely, so it can go one without me, but as sometimes I am the only one that shows up, and maybe one other person, I hesitate to have it if I can't be there.  So, this is not an official unofficial dinner, but if you want to show up and see if anyone else does, please do.  Our regular time is 6pm-ish.  Go by, give it a try (I have been twice and enjoyed it both times) and see if any other BMWs show up.

Keep your fingers crossed for next month!

Chief Joseph is done and the National is now done, must be July and a busy schedule is still busy, but there is time free on Wednesday for dinner! And Wednesday looks to be the coolest day of the week, so let's get our bikes out and ride to eat.

Let's try Bargarten, in Beaverton. I think they should be able to accommodate us and the food has been good there in the past.

I have a reservation for 6pm under my name. Hopefully this will give people time to fight traffic and make it to the location.
