What are the right ingredients to a meetup (Tweetup) that doesn't suck? Maybe there are no ingredients. Maybe it's serendipity.
That seems to be the awesomesauce that has carried #thinkndrink through to two years. I won't go into the details of what #thinkndrink is or how it started...you can read about it here. This no strings, no rules, no speeches weekly gathering has created a fair amount of significant relationships between its followers...without even trying. A cult? Not so much (that does sound more exciting, though). But, among its conversations, you will hear a theme of shared creative drive, a love of Portland and its potpourri of talent, collaboration, and a curiosity about the possibilities and out-of-the box thinking.
Thanks to all of you lovely, inspirational people who have hit up one, or nearly all, #thinkndrinks over the past two years. I look forward to the next year of, well, whatever YOU make it.
See you tomorrow night, November 18th, for #thinkndrink at EastBurn.
