    oh, man. I want to be there.

  4. Once again, I wish I could be there. Looks like another fantastic line-up.

  5. As usual Transport for London’s website fails to provide a travel plan for my required destination. I’ll try Big Dave from Fleet Cars at the end of Hackney Road.

  6. Greg Olear says:

    What a star-studded — and stud-studded — lineup! Wish I could be there.

  7. Tom Hansen says:

    I am planning a trip to Joshua Tree (to see a chick, of course haha) in the near future and I hope this trip coincides with this so I can crash your party and ruin everything (just kidding–it’d be great to meet some of you guys/gals)

    It looks charmingly like one of those Wisconsin things called supper clubs. But missing the game turkey stuffed in the corner. Are you going to have to bring your own stuffed game turkey?

    A good read. By the way, reading can truly change your life for the better, especially if you get a transformational life coach to support you. I found actually found an excellent Life Coach in London UK, that helped me a lot to turn around my life. Check her out!
