Auction: lunch with Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak

Charitybuzz is offering a great auction — lunch for two with Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak!

You can have a front row seat as the real-life The Office characters Ryan and Kelly argue over various popular culture touchstones and other topics right before your eyes. Actors and writers B.J. Novak and Mindy Kaling (The Office, The Mindy Project) will take you out to lunch in Los Angeles and discuss whatever you want to talk about. Valid for two people. Lunch will take place in Los Angeles at a restaurant of B.J. and Mindy’s choice.

I’ve had the pleasure of chatting with Mindy and B.J. and I can tell you it’s like curling up on the couch with a bowl of fresh made caramel corn. Sweet, salty, delish. :)
