Join us on Tuesday evening, December 17, 2013 for holiday networking and all-around good time. This year we’ll enjoy a warm view of the Christmas Ship Parade, a festive Portland tradition in it’s 59th year, from McCormick and Schmick’s Harborside / Full Sail Bar at the Riverside Marina. The Fleet (weather permitting) assembles at the Marina and embarks on its nightly parade at 7:00 so come early and meet-up in the bar with big windows, next to the restaurant.
