just got back from a stylin Thanksgiving vaca. One thing that was kinda neat was that on the way back some of the scouts in Conneticut were giving away coffee and donuts and sometimes hotdogs at various rest stops.

Did a couple of events today. First the Resource Hub annual awards meeting which was nice. No beer but the food was good. The people were mostly local business folk and pols. That's understandable since the Resource Hub is a resource for growing local businesses.

After a short time schmoozing there, I made my way over to the Shipyard Brewery for the Metro launch party. Talk about a breath of fresh air. It was a tantalizing mix of models intellectuals, entrepreneurs, and artists of all kinds. The beer was good, too.

If the magazine holds up to it's potential Franklin McMahon and Josh Shea will have done an outstanding job of showing Portland that cool and hip can be the same thing.
