Favorite Streets in 12 European Cities
From the Zytglogge, a 13th-century clock tower, I rolled east past Albert Einstein's house and down toward Bear Park, where a flat path shot along the river. I missed my turn, the road cocked skyward, and I learned the Grosser Muristalden is best on foot....

Trey Anastasio isn't taking his job as singer-guitarist at the Grateful Dead's reunion shows lightly. In preparation for the Fare Thee Well concerts (which start on June 27th), Anastasio has been shuttling between the houses of surviving members of the Dead in Northern California to practice and talk set lists. "There's certain things you can't pick up without sitting there," says Anastasio, as he talks about visiting Bob Weir at home, "like some of the changes in 'New, New Minglewood Blues. ' " A few weeks after the Dead shows, Anastasio will return to his day job in Phish, who are starting a U. S. tour in Oregon on July 21st. For those rehearsals, the guitarist only has to travel to his Vermont barn, where he was heading when we spoke. I hung with Bobby [Weir] at his beach house for about a week. " We played through all the tunes, but being given the opportunity to hear stories about how they were written – Bobby would tell me what bands they were listening to when they wrote a particular song – that stuff is really informative. Then Phil [Lesh] invited me out, and we had a barbecue at his house, and I got to see Phil walking on the beach with his grandson, which was really touching. Bobby, Phil and I just sat, talking about the set list. One day, Bobby started talking about how much he loved Brent [Mydland, the Dead keyboardist who died in 1990]. He said, "Make sure you listen to those vocal harmonies from the late 1980s. " I also thought Brent was great and miss him.
Science Museum Oklahoma sparks families’ love of learning with CurioCity. "There's everything here you need to get ready for a show," the chairman of Science Museum Oklahoma's board of trustees said during one of The Oklahoman's early exclusive tours of CurioCity. The curtain goes up Sunday on one of the biggest changes in the museum's almost six-decade history: a 20,000-square-foot, $9 million family exhibition designed to teach children, parents and grandparents about science through exploration and... It's appropriate that CurioCity — pronounced "curiosity" — is opening on Father's Day since it's not a children's exhibit, said Jim Farris, the museum board's past chairman. It's a family exhibit designed so that people of all ages can participate in the dozens of activities housed within its colorful walls. "Our whole goal all along was to try to have an exhibit that no matter what your age when you came in, you could enjoy it. My kids will love this, but certainly, my grandson Max, who just turned 1, will enjoy it. And it's not the kind of thing... "That was our whole goal: to try to give something to the state of Oklahoma — not just Oklahoma City but the state of Oklahoma because we are Science Museum Oklahoma — that's a legacy for the museum.
