No More Obamapalooza Tickets

By Rob Christopher in Arts & Entertainment on Oct 29, 2008 4:10PM

In news that will surprise no one, The Swamp is reporting that all the tickets for Obama's election night event in Grant Park have been snapped up. A message on the wait-list website reads "Thanks for your interest. There are no remaining tickets for this event." Sorry, Charlie. So what if you still want to be there? Unticketed folks are going to have to hang out around the perimeter and probably won't be able to see much of anything, unless they set up some big-ass TV screens. Time to dig out that old transistor radio and tune into NPR.
