I've been flowing this and would change the name of the place for next years marketing. I'm thinking the web sites from the previous owners that said they were closed probably contradicted you even having the opportunity to say that was the old guys and this is you. Plus there might be more to this since we haven't seen any pictures or videos, the old owners may have had quite a lame show and sold because they knew they had their run. So using the same haunt name may have been bad ju ju.
Sometimes 800 people is how it all starts and that is just the way it is. It isn't like some of these books say and just figure your ticket price times 10,000 people and that's how much money you are going to make.
Another fabulous post from the U.S.Department of Wild Imaginings, now in spectaclar stereo, sponsored by the Adhesives and Sealants Council, suggesting ways to stick things together since the 1800s. Not fabulous in a gay way. Your results may vary. Illinois residents add 8% sales tax.
