retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Since I am currently spending the month in Portland, Oregon, team-teaching a course at Portland State University, I've gotten a number of requests from folks asking if I would have one of those casual get-togethers of MNB readers that I do around the country from time to time.

My answer: Absolutely!

Next Tuesday, July 24, at about 6 pm, I am going to be sitting in the open courtyard at Nel Centro, located in the Hotel Modera at 515 SW Clay St in downtown Portland. (You'll know me because I'll be wearing the smile of a guy who is living the dream...) I'll buy the first couple of bottles of wine, and will hang out as long as anyone wants me to ... or at least until I have to head back to my home-away-from home to get MNB done for Wednesday.

I hope I see you there...
