Portuguese Speaking Group

It was fun! I really did not expect this many people!
I am still euphoric! Usually, I don't talk much, but I did a lot today.
There are so many Brazilians and people that are interested in learning Portuguese in Portland! Fun! Fun! Fun! I am really happy to meet you all.

Obrigada por terem vindo. Foi muito divertido e estou super contente por ter conhecido tanta gente nova com algo em comum... falamos portugues!

Keiko/Beth :)

PS: don’t forget, next week we have craft!
PS2: next time, we shoul take a group picture before people start leaving....

"Popping the Question"

A film was shot at The Fine Grind.
It was back in end of February, and it is already out there!
Andrew Heckman with help of his wife Lisa (who is the main actress and producer) made the film as his final project for a Digital Video Production class at the Art Institute of Portland, and is submitting it to festivals.
It is a comedy detailing the experiences of a married woman who develops a sudden crush on a barista that happens to work at The Fine Grind! No... he is not Chris or Andrew....
Here is “Popping the question”... click the link: <>

Learning Groups: Portuguese 4/23, Craft 4/29, Japanese 5/6

PORTUGUESE group will be Thursday, April 23rd between noon and 2 pm.
Come to practice your Portuguese… learning from more experienced speakers… and helping others….
It will be an informal lunch meeting. You can try our “Misto Quente”, “Bauru”, “Americano”, “Pao de Queijo”, “Bolo de Cenoura” etc…
There will be no theme, just introduction…. For the next one, my suggestion is to discuss the movie “Favela Rising”. See you then… K

Craft Night!
We will have a craft night on April 29th between 5 and 7 PM.
Come work in your individual projects: knitting, crochet, embroidery, sewing etc… whatever you are working on and you can bring to the shop (sorry, no sewing or weaving machines, pottery wheels etc!).
We will share our expertise, experiences, opinions etc…. Chat, eat, drink, and learn from each other.

Breakfast in Japanese:
We will meet May 6th from 8:30 to 10 AM to speak in Japanese.
If you are fluent and want to helps us… or is just starting to learn; come to join us for a coffee, tea, bagel, or muffin while you are practicing Japanese.
In this first meeting, we will just introduce ourselves… but for the future ones, I will suggest that we watch a movie or read (something short) in Japanese then we can discuss it in group.
