Did you have an oblique notion that you might see PCS’s Santaland Diaries in the next couple weeks? Well, better take action, mon frère. Tickets to see Crumpet the Christmas mall-elf are selling like hotcakes.

Culturephile will probably graciously give this one a pass, having already read the book and verified that David Sedaris’ signature sarcasm is hilarious. But if you want to go, better plan for next week, and buy now. Meanwhile, this weekend, pick a purer poison: Either go straight sardonic, with Dying City , or embrace the harmless all-ages humor of A Christmas Story.
