October Monthly Meeting

Join us for the Mid Century Modern League’s October meeting!

This month we will be meeting at Portland’s newest tiki bar, Hale Pele, a throwback to the love of tiki during Mid Century. Hale Pele is a celebration of tropical cocktails from legendary Tiki bars of times past set in a hidden jungle in the Sullivan’s Gulch area of Portland, OR.

Their menu includes many tropical drinks from times past executed to absolute perfection using only fresh squeezed juices, premium spirits, and locally made B.G.Reynolds’ Hand-Crafted Syrups. Their longhouse is set amidst the ferns and vines of a lost tropical jungle, perched ever so precariously near the foot of an active volcano. Colorful Puffer-fish, savage cannibal tikis, and decor from tiki bars long past surround you as you enjoy their tropical drinks and exotic island-inspired small plates.
