The Perfect Party

Here’s who we’d invite if we could entertain this month’s most interesting visitors, locals, and newsmakers.

September 16, 2010 Published in the October 2010 issue of Seattle Met

Ryan Boudinot

The Littlest Hitler author—and former Seattle Met contributor—is a finalist for the PEN USA Literary Award, which isn’t little at all.

Paul Allen

The billionaire is suing AOL, Apple, eBay, Facebook, Google, Netflix, Yahoo!, YouTube—so pretty much the whole Internet. 

Bill Gaines

The wildlife biologist is tasked with verifying the existence of grizzly bears in the North Cascades. If he’s successful, we’ll task him with verifying the existence of Paul Allen’s humility.

Lindsay Lohan

The actress was spotted in a Huskies football tee but says she’s not a fan. Like former coach Ty Willingham, the shirt was just something old and faded that hadn’t been thrown out yet. 

Betsey Johnson
The fashion designer who hung with Andy Warhol in the 1960s appears in downtown Seattle. Her millions of minutes of fame are hardly up. (Nordstrom, Oct 13)

Roger Bumgarner

The UW professor was part of a team that sequenced the DNA of golden delicious apples. It was a lot like comparing apples to apples.

The Roosevelt High Thriller Club

The 20-student group will mimic Michael Jackson’s moves in public for free throughout October. No, not those moves, silly. The dance moves from “Thriller.”

Ben Franz-Knight

He’s the new director of Pike Place Market, whose busker-songwriters we hope will put to good use a name like Ben Franz-Knight.
