First Night Out with Friends

"It's what you have to do with every disease: act like you don't have it and keep on going." - Angelo Dundee on Muhammad Ali's "pugilist's syndrome"

Tonight, Gary, Chris, Christine and I attended a Q&A format appearance by film director / writer / actor Kevin Smith aka Silent Bob (Clerks, Dogma, Chasing Amy, Mallrats, Cop Out) at the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, NJ.

Smith was born and raised in Red Bank NJ, and today is his 40th birthday (thus, the free rally towel).

I have never seen Smith before, but his Q&A appearances are legendary. There is no doubt; the man is a master storyteller, and when we left -- 4.5 hours after he started-- the place was still packed, and still erupting in clapping and laughter. It was fantastic.

Location:Red Bank, NJ
