The Friday Downtown Live event wrap up this evening, and the Columbia River Reader is sponsoring a special activity connected to that. You’re invited to take part in the Columbia River Reader Shore Excursion Downtown Walkabout. Starting at 5 pm, you can stop by the CRR office, located at suite 108 in The Merk. You’ll pick up a “passport,” then you’ll follow clues that will lead you to other locations in downtown, where you can get your passport stamped. Sue Piper with the reader says that there will be surprises at each of the locations. Passport holders will also be eligible for special deals, offered only to those with the passports. Once you’ve finished up, return to The Merk and you’ll be entered in the Grand Prize drawing, which will include a Seahawks portable grill and other prizes. They’ll be serving a cake prepared by Kristi’s Custom Cakes, along with other celebrations connected to the Reader’s 77th issue.
