Okay Tallyheads, it’s 1:20am and I need to get to sleep so that I’m somewhat rested for the Blogger’s Breakfast tomorrow. Rumor has it that Kate, Bobby Ray, and Brian will be attending. Hope you will attend as well if you are here in Scranton!
Before I go, I just wanted to say that today was AMAZING — the cast Q&A was fantastic, over 4,000 in attendance, and better than Paley because the FANS got to contribute the questions!
I met and chatted with Greg Daniels and many of the writers at tonight’s VIP event, and I got to give Michael Schur a big hug.
The final event of my evening started when I followed Lee Eisenberg over to sit with the cast at the Scrantones concert, with featured performers Melora, Craig, Creed, Kate, and Brian.
(I say that was the final event of my evening, because after hitching a ride with Randall Einhorn, Jason Kessler, and Andy Buckley back to the hotel, they continued on to Poor Richard’s. Whew. )
More details, vids, and photos coming soon, but just wanted to leave you with that. This weekend has been unreal.
No, not the episode, ‘Casino Night.’ A real casino night!
Last night’s event was VIP Casino Night at the Mohegan Sun Casino at Pocono Downs. And it was … spectacular.
From the intimate venue (a private tent just outside the main casino) to the luxurious spread of food and open bar, to the energetic live band, the night was the perfect occasion to get up close and personal with the cast of The Office.
Michael Scott may have a small mind, but he certainly has big dreams.
In “Local Ad,” Corporate gives Dunder Mifflin Scranton the opportunity to shoot a five second tag for the national ad so customers can put a few faces with the name. Easy enough. I bet the kids over in Utica didn’t have too much trouble getting the job done.
But, one thing Scranton has that other branches don’t — Michael Scott.
Brian, Angela, and Craig with Al (note the stylish U of S scarves)
The first event of the convention, and it was cuh-razy! The Office cast was treated like ROCK STARS at the University of Scranton. I was lucky enough to enter with Brian, Angela, and Craig, and got to meet Al Roker in the backstage area.
The crowd went especially crazy for Craig, who celebrated his birthday last night with a group dinner and karaoke. Craig told me he wrote the music for the jingles from last night’s episode, ‘Local Ad,’ but not the words.
