It's Tuesday, May 21, Dinosaur Day. Happy birthday to Baltimore's Adnan Syed (1980), whose 1999 murder case was profiled in the groundbreaking podcast 'Serial.' Syed was convicted of killing his former girlfriend, Hae Min Lee. Requests for a new trial were unsuccessful. Today in 1927, aviator Charles Lindbergh landed in Paris, completing the first transatlantic solo flight. Five years later, Amelia Earhart did the same thing, landing in Ireland. Expect some rain showers, with a northwest breeze and a high in the mid 60s. Here are a few things to do after you've read all the books you have about dinosaurs to your granddaughter today:

• Trade in your old paper TriMet tickets for a new Hop Fastpass at a TriMet exchange, 3:30 to 6 p.m., Troutdale Library, 2451 S.W. Cherry Park Road.

• Discuss ODOT's plans for auxiliary lanes on Highway 217 at another open house, 5 to 7 p.m., Beaverton City Library, meeting room A, 12375 S.W. Fifth St., Beaverton.

• Hear city plans for the Northeast 60th Avenue and Halsey Area Improvement project at an open house, 5:30 to 7 p.m. and 8:15 to 9 p.m., German American Society Building, 5626 N.E. Alameda St.
