Re: Looking to see Live Performers..

Thanks for the response. I knew I'd have to show
the tape around but wasn't sure about the disclosure
bit. In the past, I could easily lie my way into a
place. Things haven't changed that much, I see. ;-)

I'm going to start with the coffeebar/university/
bookstore thing first.

It's interesting to read the anecdotal stuff, too.
