This has nothing to do with the new movie, but is Star Trek related. Holy ****, did I miss out on something cool. Last week, the chairman of my firm sent out an e-mail saying he had eight tickets to an event at the Lyric Opera Saturday night, free to whoever wanted them. When I saw "Lyric Opera" I immediately tuned it out. I may enjoy going to plays, but have no desire to sit through some friggin opera.
But this wasn't an opera. It was a Second City comedy event, hosted by Patrick Stewart.
Patrick Stewart. In person.
And I could have had fourth row center seats about 15 feet from the stage. FREE.
