Thanks to everyone who came out for last night's Portland's Most Influential reception at Bull Feeney's. It was great to be mashed together in one room (well, three) with so many creative, forward-looking, passionate people. Highlights of my evening included discussing kidnapping schemes with Randy Regier, Lisa Pixley, Chris Campbell, and others; talking astrology with North Star folks; sharing theater stories with Tavia Gilbert; and finally putting faces to names I know well.
Oh, and misspelling my own employer's name on my damn nametag. "PXH writer" is how I identified myself for the first hour of the evening. And that was before I got drunk. (Highlights post-tipsiness are much less interesting and involve text messages and dropping a full glass of beer at the Asylum. Classy!)
