Whovian Events Tonight in Portland

Attention all of you lucky people who happen to be nearby to The Central Library in Portland tonight  and tomorrow!

A special Doctor Who themed night is taking place and you are welcome to come and get involved. The first night, starting tonight at 5.30 pm, is the “Doctor Who Social”.  This will incorporate:

“A night of Whovian crafts and trivia! Enter to win prizes and leave with a fun craft of your making. Costumes and cool T-shirts encouraged.”

On Wednesday the 7th March, there will be a bit more of a “sciency debate” going on in the form of “Science and The Doctor”. Stretching the old grey matter, the evening will include looking at:

“How does The Doctor do what he does? Could time travel really work? How can something be bigger on the inside? And who looks at a screwdriver and thinks, “Ooh, this could be a little more sonic”? Join Portland State University physicist Dr. John Freeouf as we explore these questions and more! “

Pretty cool huh? If you’re in the area (or even if you’re not!), visit the library and go to the US Bank Room to have a bit of Doctor Who themed fun!

Doctor Who Social will take place at Central Library, U.S. Bank Room, Tues March 6, 5:30 pm-7:30 pm. Science and The Doctor will take place at Central Library – U.S. Bank Room, Wed March 7, 2012, 6-7:30pm.

    VERY cool! Color me all sorts of jealous. I live in New Jersey (where LOTS of WHO-related events used to happen!), where nothing happens now except high taxes, low-paying jobs, and a hope that perhaps the Mayans’ calendar skills are on the money for this year..
