She also reports: “Portland is also having a Blues Festival that weekend, so if you like blues and plan to come to Westercon you may also want to check out the Waterfront Blues Festival’s concert lineup and sneak away for a few hours at some point. It’s downtown, so it’s only a few stops away on the MAX.”
