New Listening Party - Meet Scharpling AND Wurster.
« on: May 29, 2007, 08:30:53 PM »
On the back of the success of the last gathering.....

On tuesday the 5th of June on the roof garden of the Iron Monkey like minded FOTs and Best Show listeners will once again gather in order to drink, chat and listen to the Best Show which will be played over the bar's sound system.

Tom Scharpling will once again make a personal appearance but this time he will be accompanied by none other than Jon Wurster.

So, it's The Iron Monkey at 97 Greene Street, two short blocks from the Exchange Place Path station and a stones throw from the WFMU studios.

Listening party 8-11pm
Personal appearance by Scharpling and Wurster at 11pm.

Ouch! I wish I'd known about this one before going to last week's. 
If I drove up from DC again just for this, it might creep Tom out a bit, and my next contest entry will likely be pushing that envelope as it is. :)
It's sure to be a hall-of-fame event, though.  Have fun, fots!  Drink a malted!

Edit:  Screw it, I'll probably go.

That's it. I'm coming.

Please recommend accomodations in the Jersey City/Newark area for Tuesday nite.

Maybe some kind Jersy City FOTs could offer some floorspace, I would if I didn't live in one room.
I checked a couple of nearby hotels but there doesn't appear to be any availability, if you are going to book a room it might be wise to post here and see if anyone else wants in so you can split the cost and share rooms.

Also if anyone is driving in maybe you could post here to see if you could pick somebody up on the way, you'd feel good about yourself and you might get some gas money.

There were about 25 people last time, I'm certain we can double those numbers this time especially if we pool our resources in terms of transport and accomodation.

I briefly considered coming up but I've got a meeting the next day.   Oh well, I'll be able to intensely focus on the Gorch and stare raptly at the computer speakers.

I'll be in Jersey City the last two days of June though, if anyone wants to meet up then.  No, there's no special events, no listening party and no celebrities involved... but there will be plenty of strained conversation!

You know, I actually checked out airfares.  The cheapest that turned up last night was almost $500, with the trip lasting six hours.  And that doesn't include the two hours to Bangor.  By bus, it would cost only $85, but the trip each way would take thirteen hours (again, not including the trip to Bangor). 

If that weren't enough to discourage me, there's the fact that I'd probably seize up with shock the instant I stepped off the plane/bus, since the largest town I've been to since 1997 (not 1999, as I misremembered last night) has a population of less than 6,000.  Some friendly FOT would thus have to have to act as my Virgil from start to finish for me to function at all.

So, all in all, not too practicable.  Guess I'll just slum it in the chat with all the other deprived souls.

Yes, if someone wants to split a hotel room, lemme know. I would forever be indebted to anyone offering floorspace, but my flight leaves from EWR at 6:15A on Wednesday, thus making me less than an ideal guest.

I'll be Amtraking across PA on Tuesday. This is exciting.

I found a departing flight for $174.00 and a returning flight for $59.00. I'd do it if it were $59.00 both ways. Also, I'm already taking off three days in June, and I'm pretty sure someone in my advisory group has that week off.

Curses. Foiled again.  :'(

Wow, Sarah, you are a Shut-In's Shut-In.  Is there a magazine that does profiles of that sort of thing?

Since 1996, I've been to 13 of the 14 largest cities in the US (stupid San Antonio) and 37 of the top 50.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!
