I believe I paid $35 per ticket for Bourdain. $181 would be ridiculous.

I looked at the CT venue, too, $75 for freakin' balcony seats. For Tony ****ing Bordaine? I mean, I've read his books, I see him on the Food TV, but are you ****ing kidding me? You think I'd take my wife out and spend almost $400 on two tickets to see him TALK, instead of, you know... like, going out to a great restaurant?

Cripes! I remember going to see David Sedaris give free readings, and then stopped when they started charging $25 for tickets. What's Bordaine going to say that's so damn interesting (that he hasn't already said countless times) that's worth $200 a pop?

That is ****ing insane! I really like the guy and have read 2 of his books and watch his shows a lot but that is just nucking futz! I could take my wife and I to NYC go to his restaurant and get a hotel for that much.
