Help NPI celebrate its eighth anniversary tomorrow at FallFest 2011!

Just a reminder that tomor­row evening, we’re hold­ing a spe­cial event in down­town Seat­tle (think house par­ty meets hap­py hour!) to cel­e­brate our eighth anniver­sary and give you, our loy­al read­ers and sup­port­ers, a chance to meet with the NPI team and learn more about what we’re work­ing on.

This isn’t a for­mal evening like our Spring Fundrais­ing Gala… even if you can only stop by for a few min­utes, we’d love to see you. There won’t be a long speak­ing pro­gram, but there will be refresh­ments, a musi­cal per­for­mance by local song­writer Gary Kan­ter, and Wash­ing­ton Pro­gres­sive Blogroll t‑shirts for sale.

NPI’s pres­i­dent, Seat­tle Port Com­mis­sion­er Gael Tar­leton, and I will pro­vide a brief post-Labor Day update on what’s hap­pen­ing and what we expect the polit­i­cal land­scape to look like in 2012.

This event, FallFest 2011, will begin at 5 PM and run till around 7:30 PM. It’ll be at New­mark Tow­er (1415 2nd Avenue), a very short walk from Pike Place Mar­ket. You can RSVP in advance, though you’re also more than wel­come to pay at the door.

New­mark Tow­er is very easy to get to if you work in Seat­tle, and if you don’t, it is eas­i­ly reached by bus or train (it’s only a cou­ple blocks from the Down­town Tran­sit Tun­nel’s West­lake and Uni­ver­si­ty Street sta­tions).

We know that park­ing can be dif­fi­cult in Seat­tle, espe­cial­ly near the Mar­ket (and espe­cial­ly dur­ing rush hour) so we rec­om­mend tak­ing Metro or Sound Tran­sit to get to FallFest. The 550 is an excel­lent choice if you’re com­ing from the East­side, and Link light rail is an excel­lent choice if you’re com­ing from the south.

If you’re not a reg­u­lar rid­er, Trip Plan­ner can help you find your way.

We hope to have the plea­sure of see­ing you tomor­row on what promis­es to be a sun­ny, beau­ti­ful evening!
