For my first event of my 35th year (that means I'm turning 34, right?) I'm proposing a Cookie Crawl!
When: 2pm April 5th, 2014
Where: Pearl Bakery 102 NW 9th Ave, Portland
What: This is like a bar crawl, except with bakeries. We'll be visiting 8 bakeries in the Pearl, Alphabet District, and Slabtown. We'll cover around 3 miles walking, so wear comfy shoes!
Following the walk we'll reconvene at our house for games, drinks, and maybe some salad or something. :)
If you can't make the crawl feel free to show up later. I imagine gaming will begin around 4:30 or 5:00.
Don't see your favorite cookie place on the list? There are many wonderful bakeries that were too far out of the way to reach walking, but you're welcome to bring more treats along to the after party.
Map of places we'll be visiting here:
This is Saturday! Ohboyohboyohboy!
Here's a couple of notes on logistics.
I have a baker's dozen of confirms for this, so in order to keep some kind of order, here's my plan.
Since we're meeting at 2pm, I figure we'll order at the first place as we roll in, then head on to the next place. That gives people a good window to arrive before we leave.
If you're running late, just tweet or message me. I'll have both pushed to my phone, so people can come and go if needed. I'll also be tweeting my current location as we go. Official twitter hashtag is #cookieCrawl, in case people don't want to read about our adventures. (Their loss.)
Can't wait to see you all!
