      I'm one of the people on the list - how do we do that?

      Bill, if you are trying to specifically give your ticket to Phil, I am not sure how you would do it. Try to message Aaron to see if that's allowed.

      March 24, 2014

  • Brian S.

    I just had to switch mine and my +1 to a NO. Sorry for the super late notice, something personal to take care of. Aaron, or someone in the know, please let me know best way to get 2 people from the waiting list these ticks. Thanks and sorry, I was looking forward to attending.

    Can someone tell me if this is being recorded on video ? I will not be able to make it.

    March 23, 2014

    • Aaron P.

      Unfortunately the videographer for tonight has a conflict so he can't make it. If anyone wants to come and can video, please let me know.

      March 24, 2014

    • D.A. G.

      Darn... I can usually get a camera & tripod if you have 1-2 days advance notice on a video person. Keep me in mind if this comes up again. (or I'll monitor comments)

    I realize that it's unlikely, but I assume that the trip to the Trinity bar at 9:15 is only available to people over 21, correct? Figured I'd see if anyone knows.

    March 22, 2014
