You are cordially invited to WITH REGRETS, an evening dedicated to the biggest foul-ups of 2011. Comedians, writers, celebs & audience participants will share their biggest regrets of the year on-stage….
WITH REGRETS marks the fourth year of 10Q, a project that invites people of all backgrounds to reflect online through a series of questions sent once a day during the 10 days surrounding the Jewish New Year: http://DoYou10Q.com. Regrets are universal, though, so come one, come all, and absolve yourself of everything from skipping services to that Tweet you wish you could take back.
