Annual Dame Dinner

  • Renaissance Room at Sentinel Hotel (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In the spirit of celebrating our accomplishments and coming together we want to start having an annual dinner to pin new members and to speak to the chapter as a whole. This years dinner will be “Donation and Potluck” style, but we will hold the event in a beautiful venue to honor all of you. We will have a small speaking program and hope you will all assist with donations of platters, wine etc. We will have space, tables, linens, and flatware donated…it will be an elegant, yet family style affair.

Pamplona de Portland - TEAM LDEI!

Join your fellow dames in a running of the bulls! Don’t worry, no real bulls and you don’t really have to run if you don’t want to. We have a team started to represent LDEI PDX. Want to join in the fun? Email contactus@ldeiportland.com

Portland’s Spanish tapas bars Bar Botellόn and Bar Vivant have teamed up to bring a running of the bulls to Portland! No real bulls, just bullshit bulls (aka: whatever your creative minds dreams up that represents a bull and is used to chase runners!) On May 5th, all participants will gather at Bar Botellόn for drinks and a “bull show” (similar to a dog show but with the bullshit bulls) before embarking off on a Pamplona style one-mile run to the Bar Vivant corridor. There, the party continues with a Basque style cider Txotx and the goring of the bull piñata. Best “bull” wins a $50 gift certificate to each Bar Botellόn and Bar Vivant plus a trophy!
