Whoa, surprise Dan Telfer up in this thread!

If you guys haven't seen him perform, you're in for a treat! And if you have, you're also in for a treat! Win-win!

I'm so conflicted!  All my non FOT friends are going to the early show and all you guys are going to the late one.  You all make me want to be a terrible first night pet owner.

If it helps anyone decide, the late show is completely sold out and there are only a handful left for the early show.

Thanks very much, Barry! I've been haunting this place quietly for a long time.

All tickets are now sold out, so if anyone still needs tickets for any of the shows, check the wall of the PFT300 Chicago Facebook group.

Beat Kitchen question:

How's parking in the area? I don't usually get that far west on Belmont.

It shouldn't be too bad; most of the parking on Belmont around there is free.  Most everything on the side streets is permit, esp. after 6p.  I would think you could find a good spot within a few blocks.

I guess I'll be at the early show!  I managed to purchase a ticket in time.  Weeee!

I'm wearing my WFMU shirt, like a dork.

I just got back from the early show.  PFT in real life looks like Kevin Klein playing a badger dressed up as Gatsby.  Great show and nice to experience comedy not at my computer.

It was awesome to meet so many of you guys.

I am still up because some crazzy thunder almost made me pee myself.

This was one of the most fun things EVER. Two pictures:



L to R: JBissell, Dan Telfer, me, Bernard, my-husband-who-doesn't-post-on-here-Tom, Clay, and a guy who ran up when he heard we were taking an FOT picture. That guy, I didn't get your name! I'm sorry, but if you read this, could you tell us?



What is that on Paul's jacket? Why, it's a Twitter Verified Account badge that I made! I sewed it out of felt and I think it came out quite cute.

I apologize for the cross-post from Twitter for those of you that follow me. But I figured others would want to see!

In closing: THE BEST! FOT for life!

HA! I LOVE the Twitter badge. Brilliant idea.
