COLISEUM: ALAN GINSBERG WROTE A SHITTY POEM ABOUT IT ONCE, NOW YOU CAN TOUR IT...

Brian Libby writes:

Sorry for the short notice on this, but today (Tuesday) at 5:30PM, the City Club of Portland will be hosting a free tour of Memorial Coliseum. The tour will be led by architect Rick Potestio, who has been part of the campaign to save the building, as well as Rose Quarter guest services coordinator Laura Doyle.

Over the weeks and months as the Coliseum preservation battle has been waged, it has been easy to get distracted from the merits of the building itself. For those who can make it, today's Coliseum tour is a chance to start over and look at this architectural gem with your own eyes.
