This morning, Mollie and I went downtown to pick up our tickets to see Conan O’Brien. We arrived at the pop up ticket center at Harold Washington College a little bit after 11am, didn’t have to wait in a line, and left with our two tickets about 10 minutes after arrival. We had a few hours to kill before 4:30pm, the time we were expected to arrive at The Chicago Theatre for the show taping, so we decided to take in the Roy Lichtenstein exhibit at The Art Institute. Sure, that exhibit was great and all, but it was nothing compared to watching CocoBobble, the Conan O’Brien bobblehead, being assembled outside of the Modern Wing.
And here’s the raw footage of the assembly:
Oh, and the show was pretty good too.
After the show Conan played with the band and then ran down the aisle and NO BIG DEAL BUT I TOUCHED CONAN ON THE SHOULDERS AS HE STOOD IN FRONT OF ME!
