So if you're familiar with Shrute and Scranton-esque things like the site of Jim and Pam's first kiss, where Michael and Jan went on vacation and have an excellent memory for "Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica," you may just earn an honorary spot on the party committee and take home a prize at the end of the evening.

His novel The Wingman Chronicles has sold all over the world, and his TV Pilot The Wingman won Best Pilot at the Hoboken International Film Festival. See him at The Triad in New York City.

For a singer with such powerful pipes, it's something of a shock to hear vocalist Emilie Surtees describe herself as primarily a "listener." Then again, maybe it's her extraordinary capacity to listen that gives her tribute to Whitney Houston, Greatest Love of All, its almost surreal accuracy.

Be moved and amazed by a tribute artist every bit as talented as the singer she honors in this dynamic concert at New York's Club Bonafide .
