..Do you remember? The tender awkwardness of the first ‘shall we go grab a drink after work?’ Heart pounding, palms sweaty, eyes darting between her shoes and safety posters on the wall… And then you pick a crappy bar, but then all goes well. And everyone is having a good time. And then you make a stupid joke and all turns quiet. And soon enough you are catching a cab. By yourself, to the next bar… Attitudes change, memories stay…

And of course we are on! Today’s, November 14, 2007 Puff’n’sip will start precisely @

5:14 PM @ 83 Proof, 83 1st Street (@Mission)
and continue @
6:58 PM @ Cigar Bar and Grill, 850 Montgomery (@ Jackson)

See you all there!
Lotsa love,

P-N-Dubya — Last Puff-N-Sip of 2007 Is Upon Us

Wednesday, November 14th, 2007


It is with sadness that I announce our last Puff-N-Sip of 2007. And, since we are moving forward into a new year, I would like to get something off my chest…
I understand that the fine people of Portland, Oregon like to live at a slower pace, drive cars with bumper stickers that say, “Ralph Nader for President” and “Keep Portland Weird” and shun all things Californian, but Puff-N-Sip is NOT CALIFORNIAN.
Puff-N-Sip is a national organization with a clear purpose – encourage happiness through the consumption of alcohol. Now, I ask each of you…what organization promotes a better cause? What, you don’t want to be happy? You don’t want to smile? You’d rather read your voters pamphlet or protest another big box retail outlet because it will endanger slug habitat? Get real people, this is the holiday season and you should BE HAPPY!
Puff-N-Sip begins promptly at 5:30:07 on November 18th, 2007 @ The Vault.

And as if it isn’t enough that you should BE HAPPY Gina Evans has agreed to buy all attendees their first cocktail! Why? Because she feels guilty for having stood me up on countless occasions and has assured me that she will be at the upcoming Puff-N-Sip! And since Gina has stood me up on numerous occasions she will be recruiting heavily from Montgomery Park to ensure we have a fantastic turnout.

Lastly, there are a few people who have disappointed me thus far. People who have it in them to BE HAPPY, but have failed to regularly attend these events. They are listed below in no particular order, but deserve to be publicly shamed into attending. If you are on this list please consider what I will do to you if you do not attend…please, for your sake.

  • Terry Van Bramer
  • Elaine Zakrzewski
  • Rick Ford
  • Lisa Larpenteur
  • Susan Flad
  • Brant Hunsaker 
  • Charlie Jones 
  • Jennifer Nassif 
  • Yann Blindert 
  • Shay LaBray 
  • Ryan Garrow

Regional PNW Puff-N-Sip Manager,
