  10. I will be in Portland and Seattle on Thursday – Monday this week. What are the most fun things to do in either place? Tell me, please. I will be traveling with scientists. @ me if you want to meet for drinks and listen to them talk about methods and stuff. Except some of them will be computer scientists, one is a chemist, and I will only be posing as a library scientist so…just @ me if you want to participate in a very bad “walks into a bar” joke.
