Our reader parties in San Francisco and Washington, D.C., are the stuff of legend, but they’ve caused our hometown peeps to struggle with some rejection issues. Why all this jet-setting across the country and no love for the Emerald City?

We heard your cries, hometown peeps. So we’re having a blowout right here in Seattle — and you’re invited! Good food, good booze, good conversation … and if a few of you single greenies don’t go home and get freaky, we’ll consider it a failure.

Grist Seattle Reader Party

Two weeks from today, on Oct. 17, at 5:30 PM, we’ll be convening at The Last Supper Club, just south of downtown Seattle. In addition to drinking to excess, we’ll also be celebrating the release of Grist’s first book, Wake Up and Smell the Planet.

Buy your tickets now! Believe me — it will sell out.

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.
