Pittock mansion/Sherlock Holmes PDX Outing

Postby SarahMiller42 » Tue Nov 01, 2011 6:04 pm

I'm organizing an outing for Rose City Steampunks Local 23 on December 17. We're touring the Pittock Mansion and going to see the new Sherlock Holmes movie. We're meeting at the Mansion at 10:30AM since they don't do group reservations while decorated for Christmas so we need to get in line and pay individually ($8). Afterwards we'll find some place to do lunch. And around 4pm we'll go to the Century 16 Cedar Hills theater to see the movie. (I don't have a specific time yet since it is more than two weeks out.)

Holy cow. I'm not from Portland but I'll be there for a week on a work assignment around the 17th. If I had the gumption to pack a big bag with a full dress (and pay $25 to check it!) I'd meet up with you.

rajani We'd love to have you even if not in full glory. the mansion is lovely and they go all out in decorating for the holidays. It's on one of the hills and has the best views of the city too.

I may just have to do that. Are you OK with just basic Victorian? I don't really have "steampunk" per se but I do have a fabulous Natural Form dress. I was thinking if I have to check a bag for a week of work, I might as well check a BIG bag.... only problem is that I am on-call and might have to bug out in the middle of it.

Possible it is too far away anyway or logistics won't work.... How close is this to NW 23rd? I work around there.

I dress basic Victorian too with out the Steampunk so it is fine by me. I live out of PDX proper so I'm not sure. My best guess is for you to mapquest your work space and 3229 NW Pittock Drive Portland 97210
