Minor Correction re: Tonight’s Columbus Appearance
Posted on October 2, 2008 Posted by John Scalzi 14 Comments
The address of the bookstore Toby and I will be at this evening at 7pm in Columbus, Ohio is 1598 North High Street, Columbus, OH, not 1958 N. High Street. Please make a note of it, since I don’t want you angry at me if you can’t find it. I want you angry at Toby. Yes, it’s all his fault. Kill him and not me!
(Note: Please don’t actually kill Toby.)
Here’s a Google Maps link to the location. Oh, Google, is there nothing your technological tentacles can’t find their way into? Apparently not.
Google also tells me I’m a mere 477 miles from there. If I start driving now, I can be there by 5:30 or so.
Three miles. Maybe I’ll walk.
Out-of-towners, just head northwest out of downtown until you smell Coach Tressel’s aftershave, then look for the B&N sign on the right side of the street. If you see panhandlers outside the Newport Music Hall, you went too far.
Please don’t mention technological tentacles, I had a bad experience at Junior Mad Scientist Summer Camp when I was 14.
Regrettably I am much too far from Ohio to attend. Now, if you ever find yourself in Northern British Columbia it’s a done deal. On the other hand at least you don’t have to worry about any nitpicker-driven homicidal tendencies I may have been unaware of up until now…
I am a mere 642 miles. I think Scalzi is afraid of the Hudson River, he never comes this far east.
I have a class at 6:30 about 300 feet from there! Thats the barns and Nobles right next to panera bread, gamestop, and the drexel movie theater at the gateway. I hope i can get out of class early.
What? I was in NYC two Fridays ago!
The Newport is still there? Last time I was on High Street So Much on the South End had changed I didn’t even recognize it. My 16-Year-old daughter thought I waas making up all the stories.
Is Larry’s still there? That was My great uncle’s hangout in the forties. When I went to school it was a grad student place that they all told undergraduates was a gay bar so they could drink in piece.
Scalzi: You say you were. Got any proof? Hmmm? Hmmm?
Just got home from the Scalzi appearance. Things went well and he made the mandatory mention of Bacon Cat.
Hey Mr. Scalzi, just wanted to let you know you’ve got a good fan base with me, some other action figures and more importantly with a bunch of the grunts we teach:
Hopefully you’re not biased against the smaller and more plastic of your readers…
Another chance to thank you for your appearance last night. Had a wonderful time.
I just wanted to hop in and say thank you. It was a great time.
It’s an attempt to make sure HTML tags really do work in these comments.
I’m doing it in an old and apparently dead thread so that if I do screw up, it won’t land in the middle of an ongoing discussion.
Thanks for being understanding. Now to hit the submit button and see what happens…
