Powell's on Hawthorne
3723 SE Hawthorne Blvd.
 
Rather than getting married or having children, sitcom writer Kristin Newman (That ’70s Show, How I Met Your Mother) spent her 20s and 30s traveling abroad for weeks at a time, sleeping around with Israeli bartenders and Finnish poker players, and generally falling in love with the world. Her new book, What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding: A Memoir, basically rubs it in the face of everyone who hasn't slept with an Argentine priest.
