It’s Father’s Day. Happy Father’s Day to me.
If you’re a dad, or you like dads, and want to spend an evening with dads and non-dads alike, thinking about dads, and eating some awesome food cooked by Olympic Provisions, I recommend coming to the Association tonight.
It’s a new dinner series at Union/Pine here in Portland that pairs a different chef or restaurant with a different speaker every month.
Tonight, I’ll talk for about 15 minutes about fatherly advice between the salad and main course.
Having attended last month’s dinner, I can tell you it’s a pretty awesome evening. Cocktail hour lasts for an hour, with drinks courtesy of Merit Badge, then dinner is a leisurely hour and a half to two hour affair with multiple courses and dessert.
It’s also a great mix of three or four dozen folks. Last month I was alone so I waited for a table of six to fill up to five and grabbed an empty seat, and I ended up sitting next to this guy, who is an absolute charmer.
What with the food, and the conversation and the wine and cocktails, it more than justifies the price. Last I heard there were still a few tickets left here.
If you miss out, or have other plans, keep it in mind for next month or the months after that.
And I’ll follow up and post the essay I’m going to base my remarks on tonight in the next few days.
