I made copies of a Pizza Ria coupon I got online. I was able to “buy one get one free” about three times before the manager stopped accepting those coupons. I guess other people had the same idea. Thanks!

Rocknrolla Passes

Yes, I once scammed someone out of a Reservoir Dogs advertising light sign. He was high and wanted food, so I gave him a year old frozen burrito. He gave me the light sign.

  • Little Women: The Musical

    CHICAGO – The story of “Little Women,” by Louisa May Alcott, has been an American institution since its publication in 1869. The story of four girls-to-little-women during the American Civil War, with their indomitable mother holding down the household while their father is away in the war, was a perfect candidate to become a Broadway musical. The Brown Paper Box Co. (BPBCo) is currently presenting a brilliant adaptation of that musical for the storefront stage, and its emotion, music craft and energy is nothing sort of a triumph… this small theater company that could does it again. The show has various evening/matinee performances at the The Strawdog Theatre in Chicago through February 9th, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
