Tin shed is a zoo. I'm down for Alberta....or k school. Or anywhere else that serves cold beer. Especially now that drinking took over my number slot for pass times untill I get this stupid wetsuit issue under control.

I think you guys are making a mistake...here's a nice review of Amnesia from Citysearch

The owner drunk and aggressive
by Jasonpdx at Citysearch
I recently had a bizarre experience here. I used to drink here ever since moving to the neighborhood, but my last experience was by far the worst. I rarely feel compelled to right reviews but the actions of the owner seem borderline illegal. While looking for other reviews I found the following which is even more disturbing than my own experience. Abusive business owners need to be called out for the sake of all!
Owner is horrible
I used to come here fairly frequently. I loved their spicy brat with any of their delicious IPAs. No more...
My wife and I were recently sitting at the bar finishing our beers, almost ready to leave. There were about 4 other people there that sunny afternoon. All of a sudden we hear someone around the corner in the back ranting about someone he'd apparently recently fired. Example phrases were "I'm glad I fired the b*tch. She's just a f*cking c*nt." Everybody in the place was shocked, and the waitress/bartender was clearly embarrassed. My wife got up and peered around the corner to tell whoever it was (turned out to be the owner) that everyone in the place could hear him and that he might want to keep it down a little if he was going to use such offensive words. The owner's wrath immediately turned on my wife, as he shouted at her "This is my f*cking place and I can say whatever the f*ck I want to." Then he yelled at her to get out and that she was 86ed from the place. As we got up to leave, after she walked out and I was headed to the door, I heard him call her a "c*nt" and I turned and told him calmly "That's my wife you're talking about, and she does not deserve to be treated like that." His (not unexpected) response was "F*ck you, you're 86ed too. Get out of my bar."
Later, when I saw he was away, I went back in to tip the waitress. She looked horrified at what had happened and apologized. I told her it wasn't her fault and that I was just sorry she had to work for someone like that.
I've never been 86ed before. I'm a nice guy, and I wouldn't be angry if I'd gotten kicked out for being a dick. I used to love this place, but I will never go back, even if we somehow get the apology we deserve. I can't support a person that treats people like that. Besides, there's PLENTY of great beer in Portland. Right up the street there's a new place, Prost! that serves awesome German beer and even better spicy brat sandwiches. Don't waste your time at Amnesia unless you're into abuse and supporting abusers.

Well...I actually had a 5:30 biz dev meeting at the boiler room so I just thought I would throw it out there.

Seriously, I dont really care where we meet, figured I would throw it out, get some feedback and then we could all decide. Does this mean your showing up doc???
