It sounds like that weekend doesn't work for ya'll, so now I'm leaning towards an Autumn get-together a weekend in October, and we can watch Bojack if folks want, and eat, drink and be merry :-) [more inside]

My journey has gotten me finally to the Pacific Northwest and I am slowly making my way up the coast. I should be in Portland on the 17th and I’m staying for a record breaking 2 weeks! I have long wanted to visit this hotbed of Metafilter, can we all get together for drinks or food or, I don’t know, it’s your city, you tell me where and when!

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.
