And you said you don't have anything fun to do --
GEEKS! - check out Portland's own Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica's Starbuck) as she joins KUFO's Cort and Fatboy for the weekly show screening at the Baghdad Friday evening at 10 p.m. She'll also be doing a Q&A with fans.

The wearing of the green-and-Guinness soaked clothing starts at Kell's Irish downtown party tend - and in addition to the whiskey-bagpipes-dancing-corned beef, this year there's Everclear too. The band, I mean.

Speaking of Irish people - you may spot a tall, red-headed funny man around town on Friday. My lips are sealed to any more details on that.

Saturday morning the mushing of the human-powered shopping cart sled dog teams - Portland's Urban Iditarod brings chaos to the streets.
Teams of 5 + 1 shopping cart on a 4 mile course, with rest stops along the way and an after-party at Grand Cafe.

It's $50 to enter and a MANDATORY team leader meeting is Friday, March 13 -- details HERE
