* REVISED FORMAT *
On Monday June 30th, the PDX Tech/Tweeple community is cordially invited to join 50-100 W+K employees for a "blind date meets grade school birthday party" ad/tech extravaganza. It's going to be a fun, it's going to be quirky, and it's going to rock RockBand style (literally).
In order to get the most out of this event, we ask that those interested in a little extra fun swing by the W+K lobby on June 16th (next Monday) between 6-9pm to pick up an event package that will contain information about your Lunch 2.0v4 "date" . You DO NOT have to have an event package to attend, but it should be worth your time/effort should you choose to participate. (No worries, you will not be tied to your "date" for the duration of the event, only a brief introduction and escort to the lunch location.) Also, those who cannot make it on the 16th are welcome to ask a friend to pick up a package for them, or have it mailed directly by sending an address to gaia dot brown at wk dot com.
Thanks to those who have voiced concerns. Hopefully these changes will help ensure that all who wish to attend have a chance to do so. And, speaking of attendance, please register here on Upcoming so we get a general head-count and can adjust accordingly.
You guys totally rock and we've got a lot of W+Kers who are looking forward to meeting you!
Questions? E-mail gaia dot brown at wk dot com or find @gaeyia on Twitter.

"Date" merely means you'll be joined by a W+Ker at the front door who will escort you to the lunch location. At that point, that "date" is over... unless it's a good convo and you want to keep talking.
Some of us are not single either ;)
gaeyia - a big thank you for responding so quickly to all of the concerns from the community and for making adjustments in the format to allow more people to participate. Hope you are having fun in NYC!
Looking forward to this!
This sounds really amusing! A fun way to "flash network".
Great idea! I'll be there
What is the "date" business all about? Some of us are not single ;) Just needing a little clarification.
Thanks for the hard work in putting this together!
