    Did I tell you about the time Eddie Vedder shared a bottle of wine with me? 06/30/08 (MA), 05/17/10 (MA), 09/03/11 (WI), 09/04/11 (WI), 09/30/12 (MT), 07/19/13 (IL), 10/15/13 (MA), 10/16/13 (MA), 10/25/13 (CT), 12/4/13 (BC), 12/6/13 (WA)
  • I moonlight as a waitress at Duffys on Diversey. We do tons of "wristband" parties and have a huge back room. This is enough advanced notice I think to work things out as far as reservations. While I'm in no way a decision maker there I can get you in touch with management.

    It's a bit far from Wrigley (420 w Diversey) and cavernous which isn't the best for July! But it's on the table :)

    I can definitely help once I find out if I get a ticket through the second lottery. I won't be able to afford it any other way. I might be able to help without a ticket but I don't know that for sure yet.

    I've been out of the loop since all the SA shows have had my attention! But now, all focus is on CHICAGO!
    So, has there been any update on location? Date? Time?
    I want to be there for sure! Will help in any way I can!
