Folks in the Pacific Northwest can try out Glass for themselves with no strings attached

Google has been hitting the road over the past several months, going to major cities around the U.S. to show off Google Glass to the public. Falling in behind Durham, Detroit, Austin and Atlanta previously, the latest stop is Seattle.

Just like previous events, you'll have the opportunity to try on Glass and talk with some Googlers about the device and the experience of using it on a regular basis. This is a bit more than your standard "showroom" experience and should give you a better look at the head-mounted wearable.

The event is being held at a place called "Sodo Park," which despite the name isn't actually a park at all but just a cool old building that's often used as a wedding and event venue. It's a handful of minutes south of the downtown core of the city, and should be easy to get to for folks even if they're not familiar with the area.

If you live in the area and want to give Glass a try, this may be a nice event to attend. While you're in town, you can swing up to the downtown area and grab some Starbucks, a Top Pot doughnut (or five) and walk through the Pike Place Market — there are certainly worse ways to spend a weekend afternoon. Anyone can RSVP for the April 5th and 6th event at the source link below.

Be careful. That's Microsoft's territory you're stepping into Google. They may not be so kind to Glass.

I'll be going for sure on Saturday since I have weekends off from work now. Can't wait to see how cool Glass is.
