    I’d like to win these tickets because my parents are visiting me in PDX for the first time and they are high strung mofos who need something ridiculous like this to chill them out. I want to give them weird PDX flavor!

    My whole life I’ve always dreamed that a perfect night out would be listening to stories about cells :-)
    But really, I love Backfence PDX, and once took a fabulous storytelling workshop with Jessica Lee Williamson, so I’d love to see her in action once again.
