Running Tally:
Ok Cupid mentions: 3
Hipster mentions (it should be noted that some of these were referencing Brooklyn and L.A. hipsters): 6
Voodoo Doughnut mentions: 0 (hmm, did everyone get a memo?)
Oregon's Gas Pumping mentions: 1
Homeless People jokes: OFF THE CHARTS
Rape-y jokes: A PANTSLOAD (for efficiency, how about combining the last two categories?)

Highlights from last night:
Kurt Braunohler (as Ned mentioned he'll be doing Hot Tub tonight), Kyle Kinane apparently killed it last night (so says the hubby; I was stupidly too busy drinking at the Watertrough), Alex Gavlick (a 17-year-old high school student at the Bar of the Gods' tiny room), Robert Buscemi, and my personal favorite Cameron Esposito, a charming, hysterical, vest-wearing lesbian from Chicago who knocked everyone's socks off at the lounge at Mt. Tabor. Catch her set tonight at the Hawthorne Theatre at midnight.

Lowlights:
The drunk dude in the Bar of the Gods who kept falling down in everyone's laps. Check yourself, sir.
