I thought the address was familiar.  The event is being held at Free Geek, 
<http://www.freegeek.org/>.  If you have finally decided to get rid of 
that PDP-11, why not donate it to Free Geek.  (There's a branch in 
Olympia, too.)  Donations are tax deductible, and they use the hardware to 
train people on computer hardware maintenance and Linux.  All-in-all, a 
very nice organization.  They will charge for recyling of certain hardware 

The Lucky Lab Brewing Company is a fine place for beer near there, though 
you should like dogs (or at least not be afraid of them).  If anyone wants 
tips on other places in the area, email me on list or off.  I used to live 
a few blocks away, and I still know quite a bit about the neighborhood 
(food, caffiene, breakfast, lovely gardens for walks, etc.).
