The Toads Know How to Throw a Party
On December 4th, 2014, the Toads hosted an Open House to celebrate our recent move into the fourth floor of the historic Yeon Building in downtown Portland. Clients, partners, neighbors, and the Greater Portland technology community as a whole were greeted with open arms - as well as fresh flowers from the Hardcore Florist and live music from the Key of Dreams.
The 300+ attendees enjoyed spirited conversation and networking - as well as a generous spread of food and drink. Elephants Delicatessen provided the hors d’oeuvres - from goat cheese-filled polenta cakes to charcuterie and fresh fruit. The libation station was equipped with Oregon wine, a cider keg, and 3 frosty beer kegs from Anchor, Sierra Nevada, and 10 Barrel. Manning this rig was local barkeep Andrew Clyde (of Triple Lindy fame) and, as expected, he was the most popular man at the party. Two spent kegs and dozens of empty wine bottles later, the Toads hugged Andrew and the rest of our guests goodbye.
A hearty thank you to all those that made it out to our Open House - and Von Burke for capturing the event on camera. We are humbled to have shared a great night of food, drink, and friendship with those in our community that keep the engines of technology turning. The Toads considered the night a smashing success in no small part to the company of our clients, partners, neighbors, and friends.
We hope you had as much fun attending as we did hosting! Thank you for coming!
