    Am I in the right place? I'm super early cause I got out of work, but the door is unmarked with a for rent sign on it. Is this address still correct?

    July 23, 2013

    • Alaina P.

      It's the correct place. I just called him and he hasn't put the sign on the door yet because the event doesn't start for another 35 minutes.
