Overheard:

“If someone’s seeing your ad 20 times a day, there’s this thing called ‘frequency capping.’ You should look into it.” ~ A gentleman handing out advice while waiting for a session to start.

Celebrity-ish sighting:

Forget the “ish” – this was legit Fred Armisen walking down the street eating a salad. Super legit celeb, even if we only caught his backside.
