TEDxPortland Friday, April 14, 2017


Once again the powerful, emotional and impactful TEDxPortland brings its immutable talent, force and creativity to Downtown Portland. One of the biggest events in the city of Portland, TEDxPORTLAND has truly become THE event of Spring. Thanks to a continued relationship between The Original’s own Chris Scott, and TEDxPortland’s chief curator, David Rae, The OG once again participates in this important event and then some.

As some may know, as a Sponsor, The Original plays host to the kickoff “ALL HANDS TEAM MEETING” with a lavish and delicious BRUNCH for all team volunteers. This special daytime event sets the foundation as a meeting ground or “HQ” for all those involved with TEDxPORTLAND. It’s also a way to showcase The OG as a “home” prior to and during the speaker series for all those that work tirelessly for months and months.

Another way the OG celebrates TEDxPORTLAND is at our bar. Last year we featured a lovely seasonal cocktail named “The Wonderland” (eponymous to last year’s theme) which incorporated local Aviation Gin, a blackberry-star anise shrub, lemon and soda. This special cocktail paid homage to the fun, excitement and uniqueness of the event.

We look forward to creating a new cocktail this season correlating with the “SPECTRUM” theme. We can guarantee that it will be ready for all at the bar soon enough! Even more so we are so excited to once again partner up with such an incredibly talented group or speakers, team members and community members during the next few weeks.
