Out (north)west to attend a water meeting. Happened upon the original Starbucks (so risqué in her youth!), accidentally found the chewing gum wall (in the pursuit of graffiti...), toured a green community re: storm water control (pervious concrete, raingardens), drank two lattes from the best coffee maker evah (Stumptown!!!), and admired a little googie (the Space Needle). On the water tour, the guide asked "Anyone know who designed the city library?" as we drove past its angular glass facade. "Rem Koolhaas" I yelped. Yep.
