Leaving on a Jet Plane
Well, it's the witching hour. The part of the evening where I should totally be going to sleep since I've got to get up at the crack before dawn (that would be 4 am), but instead, I'm still packing and making sure I have all my must have items for my four day See Mom Run road trip.
This time, we'll be heading to Chicago, Los Angeles and Seattle and we've got all the info. below on all our appearances if you'd like to join in on the fun. And thankfully, even when I'm on the road, I will have access to free wi-fi thanks to Verizon. Incidentally, did you know that Verizon offers its customers free Wi-Fi access at roughly 14,000 hotspots across the country? If you're a FiOS Internet customer or a Verizon High Speed Internet customer, then free Wi-Fi is awaiting you!
During my whirlwind book tour, Verizon loaned me a laptop and granted me free Wi-Fi access. And that means I can blog wherever I want. So expect to see me uploading posts and videos from Starbucks in all three cities, plus, if I happen to hop into a Barnes and Noble to see if they've got a copy of See Mom Run handy, I'll be blogging about that too. Heck, I'll even be blogging from airports - in between buying the mandatory US Weekly, People Magazine and a copy of Time or Newsweek on my journey. Hey, I know I'm a bit schizo in my tastes but I have to always have two doses of guilty pleasures and one intellectual fix every time I hit the road. Plus, I may even go Rogue and buy Sarah Palin's new book. Then again, I might just buy a good novel and call it a day.
So before I hit the hay and look at my alarm clock every hour on the hour, here are all the details on the events we'll be hitting this week in a matter of four days.
Thursday, December 3, 2009
We'll be spending the day hitting all the hot spots in Chicago - like the Stock Market, Eli's Cheesecake; Garrett's Popcorn, 1-800 baskets Design Pac headquarters and a spot with the best deep dish pizza in town.
Then, at 5 pm, Fox 5 Anchor Nancy Loo will be hosting a See Mom Run reading and musical performance at the Comedy Sportz Theatre featuring Dawn Meehan, Sara Fisher, Vanessa Druckman, special guest performer Miss Lori and me! The evening will be sponsored by Allstate and their Vehicle Vibes Radio show along with Swiffer WetJet, Whimsical Jewelry and food provided by Daymon Worldwide.
On December 4, we head to Los Angeles where we'll be doing a reading at the Treehouse Social Club from 5-7 pm with contributors Ciaran Blumenfeld, Jenna McCarthy, Sue Kupcinet and Beth Blecherman.
Then on December 5, catch us at The Echo when we appear as a special guest at the Kidrockers concert featuring The 88 and The Flying Tourbillon Orchestra.
We'll have one day of rest where we'll be tooling around in the Volkswagen Jetta TDI that's been graciously provided to us by our fave folks at VW (love them!) So expect lots of great sight seeing pics and videos on Sunday. Then we're off to Seattle!
On Monday, September 7, we'll be appearing with organization expert and See Mom Run contributor April Welch from 10am-12 pm at the Tot Spot Cafe. We'll be hosting a reading and discussion on how to stay organized during the holidays.
If you'd like to attend any of our events, then email us at email@example.com and tweet us at @seemomrunbook. Now I'm really going to sleep. I mean it. Sort of.
