    Arrived 2:45 to check in. With ticket #356, we were the first to be denied entry. Lesson: be there by 2 to check in. You don't have to have a printed ticket bc they search by last name. Bummer for us.

    Historic theater. Get in line between 12 and 1pm for great seats. Bring a jacket. It gets cold inside, even during the summer.

    POTATOE? With this 1992 spelling bee gaff, VP Dan Quayle kissed his political future goodbye. The student involved later asked David Letterman, "Do you have to go to college to be vice president?"

    It was amazing being able to see the inside of this historic theater. A tip tho: luckily I knew ahead of time but make sure u dress warm Cus letterman likes his studio cold!

    You will have to wait in line with a bunch of rowdy tourists if you want to see Letterman. But worth the wait to see the theater inside. Piece of history, no doubt.

    Vir pra NY e não assistir um programa do Letterman não dá, né? Pensando bem, dá sim. Passe na frente, tire uma bela foto e depois assista no Multishow com legenda e tudo.
