What a fun time Saturday evening! Thanks to Twitter, we met up with @SalemRebekah, @AmberPadilla, @KBlocksom, @Trissajane, @Kneznanski--some with mates, some not. @VegansNightmare had volunteered for the first half, so he was leaving as we were arriving.
It looked like there were some decent numbers, and it was the first year of the event. James of Wandering Aengus, said that they poured 800 tastes. I thought that sounded pretty good. I bet there were some repeats in there, tho! :>) The pours were quite generous, which was nice and the two food booths were both local and stuff we'd normally eat.
Since we arrived a few hours after the core group, they ended up leaving and heading to La Capitale for cocktails. We arrived at La Cap too late to meet up with them. So we went to Willamette Noodle Co for their late hours. We were two of maybe 6 people there, until 20 minutes later when the place nearly filled with young folk. They were fans of the music duo playing. We ended up eating way too much while we sat enjoying the music, but it made for a wonderful end to our evening.
I hope to go to the Manhattan Film Fest at Salem Cinema tonight. If they have tickets left.
