Optimism

Gates Foundation + Optimism

The Gates Foundation, who refers to themselves as “impatient optimists”, was planning a launch party for their renovated Discovery Center when an employee saw someone at their gym wearing an Optimism t-shirt. She asked about it and learned about our existence and wanted to have our beer at their event. Tonight, Gay and I joined our events person, Colin, to serve our beer.

Coincidentally, it was designed by our favorite architect, Tom Kundig, who also did our brewery and our home.

Coincidence #2: the woman who was in charge of the renovation got up to speak and Gay recognized her as someone she worked with at Aldus back in the 1990s. She remembered Gay and they quickly got caught up on their lives. Small world.

    Nice post! It’s been way too long since I was able to review some of your recent posts (I do get the emails whenever you post something new). How the heck are you? Of note: Happy birthday, and why go with a german chocolate cake when you could’ve had a poop emoji cake? By the way, if I ever had a WordPress account & password, I have no idea what the heck it is these days. Love to Gay, -A.

    • We’re good. How are you? We should do something with you and Niles this holiday season. German Chocolate is more appetizing than 💩 but maybe I’m just too old to be cool.
