--The sidewalk in front of our store shoveled
--The Starbucks attached to us is open.
And yes, you can leave your skis at the front desk while you browse. Get out the shop vac!
On a personal note, I looked out my window and saw the strangest thing, my back walkway totally clear of snow--this was absolutely not shoveled. Our alley is quite the wind tunnel. Of course that means somewhere else there is a six-foot drift that I have to clear.
Yesterday I did a lot of event work--confirming authors, purchasing the books needed to sell, filing author photos and event wrap ups afterwards, playing with the calendar. We just got the gig to sell books for Cesar Millan's appearance at the Riverside on February 11th. Doors open at 7, the show begins at 8, and tickets are $35.75 and $45.75 and are available at the Pabst/Riverside/Turner website.
Millan's newest book is Cesar's Rules: Your Way to Train a Well-Behaved Dog, but we'll have copies of his other books as well. This is the first stop on a limited-engagement theater tour. Here are the other stops:
Friday February 11 – Milwaukee, WI
8:00PM – Riverside Theater
Saturday February 12 – Joliet, IL
8:00PM – Rialto Theatre
Thursday February 24 –Englewood, NJ
8:00PM – Bergen Performing Arts Center
Friday February 25 – Red Bank, NJ
8:00PM – Count Basie Theatre
Saturday March 26 – Wilmington, DE
8:00PM – DuPont Theatre
Sunday March 27 – Albany, NY
7:00PM – Palace Theatre
To find the links to buy tickets for any of these appearances, visit Millan's website. This doesn't seem to have a VIP ticket option, so I'm not sure if Millan is signing books or not. When I find out conclusively, I'll update this post.
