olympia in a can part 1: super big fun times

Holy crud. The Bus is STILL coming down from Oly in a Can last night. It was a truly awesome evening! Over a hundred young people jammed into Grey Gallery to watch the State of the Union and get the skinny on higher ed happenings in Olympia.

Here’s what happened. Stage 1: mingle! (results below). Stage 2: Barack Obama State of the Union! (thoughts? The Bus is cautiously optimistic). Stage 3: Imbibe. Stage 4: Talk to legislators. Stage 5: Talk to expert panel. Stage 6: Video testimony.

Huge thanks to everyone who made the night happen: Erik and the whole Grey crew, Representatives Deb Wallace and Bob Hasegawa, our expert panelists Mike Bogotay, Maggie Wilkins and David Parsons, and of course the more than a hundred young people who, for one night, turned Grey into the center of Washington’s political universe!

Oh, and we discovered a great recipe last night… check it out:

Recipe for “Olympia in a Can”:

Ingredients list:

  • 1 Barack Obama… in person (via satellite)
  • 1 US Congress
  • 1 Olympia
  • 6 cans Olympia beer
  • 1 technology
  • 1 Internet
  • 1 Grey Gallery and Lounge
  • 2 legislators
  • 1 expert panel
  • 100 young people cramming Grey Gallery

Go to Grey Gallery. Set up technology. Activate Internet. Combine Barack Obama Congress. Watch for 1.5 hours (patience required). After crowd of 100 young people finishes applause add legislators and expert panel. Olympia beer to taste. Repeat recipe twice every two weeks during legislative session.

The Bus’s tank is still full of Oly goodness… yum yum. “It’s the water” indeed. And we’re doing it all again in just two week! Join the Bus at Grey (same bat time, same bat channel) on February 10th as we get into the nitty gritty on what Olympia has on tap for the environment!
