Research Club Nerd Night
Research Club

You are cordially invited to the Research Club Nerd Night at the new Research Club location on May 22 at 5pm!

Research Club has just moved into its first dedicated location after nearly a year of hosting discussions, salon-style dinners, events, and the popular Research Club Brunch. Located in the heart of the central-eastside industrial district, we’re sharing a 660 square-foot space with Grand Detour, Portland’s new center for experimental documentary and new media.

What We are Offering

A large portion of the Research Club community comes from the local tech scene. A few collaborations have already grown out of meetings at Research Club brunch, but we would like to learn how to better serve this (large) portion of our community. The first half of Nerd Night will be a discussion of ways in which the new space and the other efforts of Research Club can contribute to the things that interest you.

What We are Asking -- It’s all well and good to have a new home in meatspace, but if we’re really going to reach people we need a better home online. Ním, the founder of Research Club, will be presenting a proposal for the Research Club Network, an explanation of why it matters, and a call to join the development team.

Afterwards: Stay after for refreshments and a chance to mingle with the artsy folks who will be arriving for the Art Department Orientation. (Feel free to stay for that too.)

215 E Morrison, Suite 2020 5:00 -- discussion of space use 6:00 -- Research Club Network proposal

7:00 refreshments served, opportunity to mingle with the artsy folk coming for the Research Club Art Department Orientation 7:30 -- Art Department Orientation 8:00 -- late: discussion and local pub-crawl

For more information and/or to RSVP, please check out our Facebook event! Hope to see you there.

Brunch 31

September 29, Noon - 2pm

This month through the end of 2013, Brunch has its own apartment, smack in the middle of downtown Portland.

Please Note: Brunch has slimmed down. Talks start at 12:30, and everything finishes by 2pm.

We are doing something a bit different this month. A member of the RC Board has been working with the Lewis and Clark College Venture competition and suggested we have some of the student businesses do a "dress rehearsal" of the final pitch they will present to a panel of judges where they could receive up to $30,000 in funding for their venture.

In keeping with the spirit of the competition, we're going to give you very little info about these businesses. The students will be looking for feedback on their presentation and how well they pitch their venture. Exciting!

Bring some or all of these things for the optimum Brunch Experience

  • A healthy sense of curiosity
  • Food to share
  • Friends! Lots of friends!
  • Your own plates and utensils
