Thanks to UrbanEye and Melena Ryzik

Melena Ryzik of the must-read New York Times daily newsletter UrbanEye has once again listed In The Flesh! What does this mean? Get there early! Those 200 free cupcakes (scroll down for details) will be gone in a flash. Thanks!

Here's what she wrote:

Tonight, the In the Flesh readings series tackles something you should never do in bed: laugh. (Well, laugh at.) Comedians and writers will detail their funniest (intentionally or not) trysts, and you’ll get to snack on free cupcakes. Another thing you should probably not do in bed — unless you’re willing to share.
