Public Talk and/or Beer

I'm giving a public lecture on NW Coast Archaeology at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) on October 3rd at 7.45 (This link says 7.00 but there is an AGM first, I think). It's free and open to the public. If you come, be sure to say hi. I'm also in Portland the next day (October 4) and if anyone was interested in meeting for an after-work beer that would be fun - but I'm staying near Gladstone/Jennings Lodge so don't know how feasible that is, I don't know Portland at all.

Chuy's for the cheese

Research Monkey set me up for this, and we haven't had a meetup since ignignokt and metroid_baby visited, so let's see if we can do it. Lunch or dinner at the Chuy's in Cary (or Apex, or Morrisville, who can really tell these days?) at the shopping megacomplex off US-55 and US-540. As incentive: I have a coupon for a free, uh, serving thingy of queso. Not sure if it's still good since it's over a year old and kind of beaten up from riding in my wallet the whole time, but let's try it anyway. [more inside]

T to the R to the I to the VIA!

That time of week draws near again, and I've missed trivial facts. I'm bringing two people with me, so we only need three more to round out the crew. Unless we want to divide and conquer, of course! (Moved the date to Sept 5, which was my original intent)

Hot Game Haus In The Summertime

Lets get together for a late-summer afternoon of board and card games! No experience necessary! Game Haus is a laughter-filled place in Glendale that has over 10,000 games, from strategic board games to party games like Pictionary. We usually get a mix of experienced players to help guide us and people like me, who have never played most of the games, and everyone is really patient. It's always a great time. Plus, they love us!
