    Calling all Knitters! When I was at the DC conference there was a fantastic #nptechKnit get together (is that the right hashtag ?!?)​​ Let's plan something in Portland! @Liza Dyer any thoughts on a good venue?​

    Love it! I haven't been to Portland in years, but I remember being quite impressed by the array of yarn stores there. Count me in for #nptechKnit ​:)

    Our Community Engagement Manager Tristan Penn (for some reason I can't tag him, but I'm in a plane, so maybe the whole defying gravity thing is enough for the moment) will be posting the community events doc to the NTC site this week! I hope you'll share #NTCBeer and the #NTCFibre event I'm seeing on Twitter in the doc so we know where to meet y'all for fun and frivolity!

    #NTCbeer looks like fun! I fly in late on Tuesday, so I won't be able to make it... BUT if anyone's up for a #NTCbeerDejaVuPartDeux on Wednesday after the first day of the conference, I'd love to join!​ Perhaps somewhere close to the conference site that we can walk over to for happy hour? Or try out our transit passes to get to? If anyone has suggestions, please share. Mahalo!

    Kia ora Carrie
    As another traveler coming up across the Pacific, I'm keen to meet others from the same neighbourhood. Definitely up for something on Weds night. Ngā mihi, Stephen

    Burnside Brewing is close to the Convention Center and has amazing food!

    There are four breweries within a mile from the Oregon Convention Center, all with fantastic beer:

    - Upright Brewing, known for its farmhouse-inspired beers (no food, limited hours);
    - Ex Novo, known for being the first nonprofit brewery in the world (they've since gone corporate);
    - Burnside Brewing, known for its cozy pub and beers for all tastes;
    - Wayfinder Beer, known for its Czech and German-style brews.

    Awesome beermap, @Peter Korchnak. Thank you for putting it together. I'd be up for a walking tour of those 4 places, starting at Wayfinder, then food and drinks at Burnside (thanks for vouching for the food there, @Megan Kizer), then walk up along and visit Upright and end at Ex Novo... I'm tempted to also add Widmer Brothers to the list since it's close to Ex Novo, and I'd like to try their beers that don't make it out to Hawai'i's shelves. Looking forward to this!

    Thanks, @Carrie Ginnane. Wayfinder/Burnside and Upright/Ex Novo/Widmer are in opposite directions. I've updated the map with a couple of itinerary suggestions, each under 2 miles and with some brewery additions. Beware, these aren't pretty walks, both go through predominantly light-industrial areas.

    Note that Upright is closed on Wednesdays. If they didn't have the American Hefeweizen on tap (it really is best on tap), I'd recommend you skip Widmer Brothers, the "Budweiser of micros."
