I signed up for the Portland meet-up, set for Sunday evening at a fabulous tapas restaurant nearby. Once there, I met up with some of Bossy's Portland readers waiting outside in the suddenly chilly spring weather. We kept telling the sweet hostess who checked on us (she probably didn't want anyone freezing in front of the restaurant) that we didn't have any idea how many were in our party, but at least one more person would be joining us...after about an hour, she seated us at a table with a few extra chairs, just in case.
She was there, and she was there, and I was there, as well as she who doesn't blog, but does play in a marimba band...
We ate fabulous food, drank lovely wine, sangria and martinis, got to know each other a bit,
All in all, we were disappointed that Bossy couldn't make it, but we're grateful she brought us all together. Safe travels, Bossy!
