Tempero do Brasil I was excited to see Ipanema Grill 6 blocks from the hotel, unfortunately it seems to be closed for good. So this restaurant which is a 10 minute ($15) cab ride away and which also serves Brazilian cuisine (including the ever-tasty feijoada) will have to do.

"Get Lamp" viewing Tuesday (9 PM)

Adam Wead and Michael Klein are organizing a viewing of Get Lamp: The Text Adventure Documentary

It's not about Linux, Apache, MySQL or PHP, but if you don't have a one, you might get eaten by a grue.

If there is additional interest, there may be another viewing this week.

Morning Run Wednesday

I (Ray Schwartz) will not be running on Wednesday. Though several others have said that they will meet at 7am in the Hotel Lobby. I would recommend to walk straight down west to the water front and turn right-heading north, following the pedestrian path. It goes on or some miles, so it is a good choice.

Veg*n Dinner Wednesday

We'll pick a place with lots of veg*n options to go eat Wednesday for dinner. Vegetarians and non-vegetarians welcome.

Meat-Up Dinner Wednesday

RIP Meat-Up. Going to Amazon for hurricanes.

(if you do not find a suitable burger joint, there are also some top-notch steakhouses in Seattle. Both the Metropolitan Grill and El Gaucho are delightful if folks are OK with $50 steaks. Just FYI, not trying to hijack your meat-up, Cary!. -mjgiarlo)

Evergreen/Koha and friends dinner Wednesday

Put your name and any food limitations, we're meeting in the hotel lobby at 6pm.

Going to call The Pike Brewing Company and see if we can make a reservation for 15 people.

Wednesday afternoon tour

Tour on Tuesday was nice, but less of a "behind the scenes" experience than I'd hoped. The tour guide talked a bit about the building, architecture and some of the design aspects that worked (and didn't). Unfortunately the Wed tour will not include the automatic materials sorting room. Again, max 20 people.

Also, Wednesday needs a group wrangler.

Meet the Anne Repass, your tour guide by the gift shop, just inside the 5th Ave entrance.
