Last night Jose and I had the honor of attending West Elm Portland‘s very first “We Purpose Dinner”. The idea is to network local personalites and influencers from all backgrounds for a full, diverse conversation about Portland as a city. (I’m sure West Elm is doing some research on the local market place as well).
Dinner was cooked up by our downtown Whole Foods, which is across the street from West Elm. No one was dissapointed with the delicious pairings of truffled potatoes, kale salad and parmesan chicken.
Last night’s conversations and stories incited a new excitement for the city’s growth and culture, as well as a keen feeling of kinship and community with the other dinner guests. What a lovely concept and gift for those of us in attendance.
