On April 9th, we had our second Manual Meet Up, this time in our Portland, Oregon HQ. From 6-9 pm we welcomed 40 guys and gals into our brand new entertaining space on the 10th floor of the ‘Big Pink’ in downtown Portland.

Local chocolatiers Casabonne Confections offered up a variety of treats as well as custom bourbon truffles made with Bullet Bourbon. Olympic Provisions was also on hand with mounds of Portland’s finest charcuterie and cheese to feast on.

Heimplanet  sent us one of their epic new ‘The Cave’ inflatable tents for one helluva conversation piece. Of course as the wine flowed more people crept in to experience the tent, although our concrete floors aren’t as conducive for pow wows as creek side moss.

Some of the brands that swung by included:

  • Chester Wallace
  • Marine Layer
  • Tanner Goods
  • Kiriko
  • Index PDX
  • Colliers
