Portland!

I'm doing a reading as part of theSpare Room Reading Series on July 25th in Portland with Sara Mangold and Jennifer Bartlett.

Huzzah!


I will also be visiting my hometown, Olympia. Let me know if you'd like me to bring you back some coffee or peanut sauce.

Hooray! I'm looking forward to seeing all of you Portland folk. If Auden's around I'd love to hear "Submarines are Alright" again. I want to learn it. It's so good.

What kind of peanut sauce? Is it like the Southeast Asian kind, like they put on the satay, or something else?

Stan, this peanut sauce is the Southeast Asian kind, but the best I've ever had. Olympia is not known for it; it's not a local specialty although there is a joke that you can't throw a rock in Olympia without hitting a coffee shop, a bar, a tattoo parlor or a Thai restaurant. Everyone has their favorite and it's sort of a point of pride. Mine has always been Mini Saigon. Their peanut sauce is completely perfect. You can buy it by the bottle--something I've never done but am considering doing this time around. I figure it's got to be good on just about everything.

Sounds like you're going to have a fun trip. Portland, I'm telling you. Portland.
