Central Oregon Meet-Up Anyone? UPDATE: Meeting This Sunday

Just throwing this out there. Team Hemingway will be in Central Oregon next week. Any interest in a meet-up of the Ricochetti? Are there any Ricochetti in Central Oregon? I’m sure you’re all in Portlandia. But if any of you are near Bend or able to get there, what do you think?

UPDATE:

The Central Oregon meet-up will occur *this* Sunday between 2-4. Hope you can make it!

We’ll be at Deschutes Brewery. Deschutes Brewery …

    Will you be flying in or out of PDX on your way to Bend? If so, a meetup up at the airport would be fun.

    Yeah, Coffee People at PDX would be a great place for a meet-up and a Velvet Hammer Mocha!

    Alas, we will not be in PDX. We’ll be flying into Redmond, Oregon.

    We were going to try to visit Portlandia but just don’t have enough time.

    *wails* Aaaargh!  The one Thanksgiving we’re with the other side of the family, you’re in my sister’s back yard!

    Oh, well.  Enjoy it!

    Mollie, oh yes! I never thought there’d be a meet-up here, we’re so out of the way. The Mr. (Think So) and I would love to meet the Hemingways!! What day, that is the only tricky part as he works out of town a few days next week. I will stay tuned for details.

    Awesome! We are pretty darn flexible, though I need to run things by the in-laws. This weekend or some evening next week would work for us.

    Oh, and I’ve been in correspondence with a member considering making the drive from Portland area.

  8. Diaryof1

    This weekend or Monday evening would be good, I think. Or the day after Thanksgiving. I am so excited! Mr. is asleep already and I think I’ll wait for him to discover this message himself and see that I beat him to the comments! 

    You  must have family here and you’re coming for Thanksgiving?

    Mark grew up in Sunriver! I’m from Colorado so we like to fight about who had it better. And yes, we’re doing the Thanksgiving with the whole clan. I’m hoping there’s enough snow that I’ll be able to ski …

    OK friends,

    We’ll be at Deschutes Brewery. Deschutes Brewery Bend Public House

    Mt. Bachelor lifts are tentatively scheduled to open on Wed., so there’s a good chance. Sounds like you have a fantastic holiday ahead! Sunriver is a fun destination.

  12. C. U. Douglas

    Though I’m now in Oregon, the wife and I will soon be driving to Utah for Thanksgiving.  I’m afraid I won’t make it.  My parents, whom I believe you met on the National Review cruise, Mollie, might be interested.

  13. Underground Conservative

    I could do it but not on a weekday. Is the weekend okay?

    That would make a good “fight of the week”!  I would vote for Colorado just barely, but Sunriver/Central OR is amazing and it is nice being closer to the beach for those five days a year when it’s sunny on the Oregon Coast.  Have fun and Happy Thanksgiving from Portlandia!

    Sorry I’m on the wet side of the mountains, but enjoy Bend.

  16. J. D. Fitzpatrick

    I miss Bachelor Bitter. They don’t seem to make it anymore.

    Will it just be me? I have some serious driving to do for this, and dang it, you called my bluff!

    Ha! You should feel absolutely no pressure to do anything. Even if it were just Mark and me, we’d have a good time. As it happens, Diaryof1 and ThinkSo will be there, too, so we’re all set.

    Update: And two more just RSVPd.

  20. Ryan M

    Mollie, I wish I was in Bend at that time.  I love Deschutes – maybe in your honor I will go grab a sixer of Mirror Pond.  I consider that my all-time favorite beer.  I hope you guys have fun.
