retail news in context, analysis with attitude

I may have been on vacation the past few weeks, but I've also been getting emails from Portland, Oregon-area MNB readers wondering if I am going to have one of those casual get-togethers that we've done here the past few years. I'm game if you are...

So, let's get together this Thursday night, July 27, at 5 pm, at Nel Centro, located at 1408 SW 6th Ave, in Portland. I'll plan on being there for a couple of hours - if the weather continues to be as amazing asa it has been the past few weeks, on the outside patio - and I hope that any MNB readers who'd like to stop by will do so.
