  14. Lauren March 1, 2012 at 2:51 pm #

    I haven’t written any witty quips about my love for/fear of/resemblance to bats, but I’d still like to go just as much as those it a more poetic mood. :)

  22. Neil March 1, 2012 at 5:11 pm #

    We went to Austin recently and it was wrong the time of the year to see the millions of bats which hang around their downtown bridge, So, this exhibit would be our opportunity to “see” the bats locally. Besides, we’re thirsty and hungry!

  23. Meghan March 1, 2012 at 5:16 pm #

    I love bats. I have no life and need one given to me for free!

  24. Robert Messick March 1, 2012 at 5:17 pm #

    Hello! I’m new to Portland and eager to explore the lovely offerings! Sounds like a great event.

  26. Michael Afentoulis March 1, 2012 at 6:12 pm #

    I’ve always had a penchant for bats and their strange ways. I’m a bat fetish freak! It started when I volunteered in Australia in 1998 to catch tiny bats in mist nests for an animal survey for a new National park named Moorinya National Park. I loved being scared out of wits by flying foxes in coastal Queensland. In Oregon, bats are pretty elusive, so I would love to get in on some new footage of bats. The bat house at the zoo rocks but this might be the coolest bat exhibit to date! I would be honored to attend this event! Oh, and I am a serious whino too.

  27. sam March 1, 2012 at 6:22 pm #

    I’m not really a night person, but this would be worth going out after dark for.

  28. Carey Anne March 1, 2012 at 7:15 pm #

    I would love to surprise my boyfriend with tickets to this event. He mentioned he wanted to go and we’ve not been to the Discovery Museum yet! Pretty please :)

  52. Hollywood Steve March 3, 2012 at 5:24 am #

    Living in Austin for over 30 years, my wife & I would often join the crowd gathering next to the downtown bridge along the Colorado River to watch millions of Mexican Free-tailed Bats emerge in tornado-like columns for their daily supper. We’d love to learn about Portland area bats!

  53. Michael Nomura March 3, 2012 at 9:41 am #

    Batman is my favorite super hero! I need to see him and all his other bat brothers! I love Portland!

  54. jenn March 3, 2012 at 12:00 pm #

    ahhh I love bats AND coffee, please pick me. PS JENN, yes bats eat mosquitoes! TONS of them.
