Skip to: Thoughts From Eric


We mentioned two days ago that there were 20 seats left at AEA Philadelphia.  As of an hour ago, they were all gone.  I guess that makes us sellouts.

Our sincere and deepest thanks to everyone who registered, and to everyone who’s written expressing interest in future shows.  We can’t take the wrapper off of our plans just yet, but I’ll let you in on a little secret: we’re planning to announce the date and location of the next event by the middle of November.  Stay tuned to that RSS feed!

Meantime, I’m getting ready for cheesesteaks galore.  Mmmmm… cheesesteaks.

    Cheesesteaks and hoagies and Philly Soft Preztels. Don’t know how all you other people survive with ’em.

    Now you have to come to Cleveland. ;-)

    Believe me, Will, I’d love to have AEA make a Cleveland stop, and perhaps one day it will. For now, we’re concentrating on cities that have high levels of indicated interest as well as decent geographic dispersion. Given those two factors, the ol’ home town, downcast as I am to say this, doesn’t make it onto the current short list.

    I feel honored that you should make Philadelphia AEA’s first stop. It’s really a fantastic stroke of luck for me, because I’ve never been able to make it to any of the other events since moving to the US a few years ago. I’m not at all surprised it sold out so quickly given the high caliber of those involved.

    Since you will be in Chicago in a few weeks, will AEA be making a stop there anytime soon?

    Maybe a trip to St. Louis or Milwaukee instead?

    See you in Chicago.

    I’ll be there. Glad you’re coming to my city!

    I’m wondering how many tickets were available to begin with? Can you tell us the size of the crowd to expect?

    Congrats to you guys… too bad for me. I really wanted to go to this but I hadn’t gotten around to registering (for various legitimate reasons I assure you).

    Is there by chance a waiting list for cancellations or something?

    If you want cheesesteak, Pat’s is THE place to eat, they’re said to be the origininator of the Cheese Steak. (absolutely TERRIBLE webiste, but great food).

    Also Geno’s is right across the street, but their steaks are inferior, IMHO.

    Whichever you choose, I suggest not looking too closely into the kitchen.

    Rick’s in Reading Terminal Market is good too. Same family as Pat, but I prefer to avoid cheese whizz and go for mozzarella.
