I’d like to field this question: it is going great.
Maybe I’m just feeling great because of what happened last night.
You remember that Portent moved downtown to Seattle’s Smith Tower in June. Since then, life has been a lot like the 1996 blockbuster film The Rock starring Nicolas Cage and Sean Connery. And by that I mean it’s been incredibly awesome.
And when life is like a blockbuster film, you need to throw a high-profile party. That’s exactly what happened last night.
Portent could not have grown so much without the help of a lot of people:
There is no better way to say thank you than a party.
We mixed and mingled all night.
Nothing says classy like a signature martini. And who doesn’t want a food or drink named after them? (Still trying to get Quiznos to name that bacon sub with extra bacon after me)
If you want to celebrate Portent at home with your friends, grab some Sky Vodka, Blue Curacao, Simple Syrup and Meyer Lemon Lemonade.
If you have never played competitive hangman,
you haven’t lived – you haven’t ensured the death of a helpless stick figure.
The competition got fierce once everyone realized the top prize was a Nexus 7. Client against client, competitor against competitor, father against son* – it all happened. (*The father against son thing did not happen)
The best part: Internet marketing buzz words. Guessing “edgerank algorithm” is a lot harder than guessing “puppy” (or even “puppy algorithm,” which would be adorable).
Did I mention that Portent has some incredible clients? I did, so I’ll make this brief. On top of the free-flowing Portent swag, our clients contributed mountains of awesome gifts for party-goers.
Just a few of the awesome items we’re now in possession of:
And that’s all I have to say about that.
This was a celebration for Portent. We’re glad people we care about were able to come celebrate with us. I’ll let some more pictures do the rest of the talking.
