    Why doesn’t it list the date and location on the site?
    When I go to Ticketweb it posts it as April 22nd and 23rd in the San Mateo, but is that the only one happening, or does it just enter in the closest location? Thanks.

    This looks truly awesome. Now, let’s hope it’s a success . . . so we can give the East Coast some love. ;-)

    Will walk-in ticket purchases be possible?

  6. philliptorrone says:

    aplumb- as we have space left to fit folks in, we’ll take walk-in purchases. however…the upcoming MAKE vol 05 features a promotion code that has a 50% discount on tickets purchased by march 31. check out the “reader’s corner” column for the code.
