Wow. Two near naked men covered in gold tinted paint do amazing body contortion and freakish acts of strength and balance while the symphony plays Christmas music. Amazing. The juggler, the hoop lady, people flying around attached to huge fabric trapezes, the opera singing, violin playing, trapeze artist. How will Sam ever top his first symphony performance? We got to take Ayumi and the kids to the fancy Arlene Schnitzer Auditorium. Later, dinner and a walk through the Recently-Appointed infamous Pioneer Square giant Christmas Tree. All this and no rain!
