Humanities Washington’s next “Think & Drink” discussion is at Naked City Brewery & Taphouse, 8564 Greenwood Ave. N., on Tuesday and focuses on “State of the Unions: A Conversation on the Institution of Marriage.”
It’s free and begins at 7 p.m. Past Think & Drink events have proved popular; arrive early to snag a seat.

Social historian Stephanie Coontz, civic leader Anne Levinson and moderator Steve Scher will lead a conversation about marriage, offering both historical context and a consideration of recent same-sex marriage legislation.
Coontz is the author of Marriage, a History and teaches history and family studies at The Evergreen State College; she’s appeared in media ranging from The New York Times to The Colbert Report. Levinson is a LGBT community leader and advisor to Washington United for Marriage; she was formerly a municipal judge, Seattle deputy mayor and co-owner of the Seattle Storm. Scher is a longtime journalist for Seattle’s National Public Radio station, KUOW; currently, he is the senior host of Weekday.
