The holidays were exhausting; January is recovery time. Mostly this month I’ll be reading books by the fire, sipping homemade glühwein, eagerly awaiting the official release of the Timbers 2009 schedule, and making countless trips to Ikea (Heather and I moved. Finally). Oh, and I have to get a haircut, stat; both the move, and my trip to the barber were snowed out several weekends in a row last month. I look like a hippy.
There are, however, a few things going on this weekend worth checking out.
Starting Saturday you can take a 20-minute tour to see it for yourself. The tour begins at the welcome desk on the first floor of the Central Library. Register online or by calling 503-988-5234.
