Dave Chappelle and his stand-up appearances are without a doubt a hot ticket no matter where he’s performing, and a Charlotte couple tried to score big for Chappelle’s Valentine’s Day show. After getting scammed out of $ 500 on Craigslist, Chappelle personally delivered the tickets to the victims and even kicked it with them a bit.

Local outlet WBTV reports:

On Thursday night, Dave Chappelle hand-delivered tickets to his Valentine’s Day comedy show to a Charlotte couple who were scammed out of hundreds of dollars trying to purchase the tickets on Craigslist.

Not only did Chappelle hand-deliver the tickets, he sat down to chat with the couple and took time to take pictures with several people in the hotel restaurant.

On Wednesday, WBTV reported that a south Charlotte wife and mother claimed she paid a seller on Craigslist hundreds of dollars for tickets to see comedian Dave Chappelle at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, but never received the tickets.

Deidra Dickens thought she scored the deal of a lifetime on Craiglist to surprise her husband, Eddie, who is a huge fan of the comedian. However, the whole thing was a sham but Chappelle managed to save the day.

In video captured by the news outlet, Chappelle had dinner with the couple and posed for flicks for fans in a big-time show of class and grace. Way to go, Dave Chappelle.

Happy Valentine’s Day indeed.

Copenhagen Fashion Week Delivers Charm — and a Green Focus

COPENHAGEN — The appeal of the Copenhagen fashion girl, often found riding a colorful bicycle and sporting pearl-encrusted hair clips, is here to stay.
Apart from charming the world with their flair for candy colors, cozy decorating and quirky accessories, the Danes mean business: Pioneers in the contemporary category, they’re experts at offering trendy, fuss-free pieces at what they refer to as “honest price points.” Now, they are ready to shift up a gear.
Everyone from Ganni, Copenhagen’s breakout label, to newcomers such as the outerwear brand Stand and Instagram hit Rotate are in the process of expanding their retail footprints across Europe and the U.S. Some are broadening their ranges to include accessories.
They want to do it all with a conscience.
Sustainability in Denmark is less marketing ploy and more a way of life, so when Copenhagen Fashion Week’s newly appointed chief executive officer Cecilie Thorsmark laid out her ambitious plan of turning the three-day showcase into the most sustainable international fashion week, she found that local and international brands were quick to align with her mission.
British label Mother of Pearl opened Copenhagen Fashion Week, which ran from Jan. 29 to Feb. 1, with an intimate presentation of its seasonless, sustainably made

Driver Who Delivers Organs Gets New Kidney He’s Spent More Than A Decade Waiting For

Joe Tinker spent more than 12 years on dialysis with a failing kidney until the organ delivery driver got a transplant himself in August.

Fox 5 reports the D.C. man had been rejected for a kidney transplant in the past. Two years ago Tinker began working as a delivery driver for a company which coordinates deliveries of organs to transplant patients who need them.

Tinker’s doctors reportedly say advancements in medical procedures for organs from donors infected with hepatitis C allowed Tinker to receive a kidney faster than if he had kept waiting for a kidney without the infection.

“I didn’t want to sit in the house waiting to die,” said Tinker.

In August, Tinker got the transplant and his prognosis is good, according to Dr. Jennifer Verbesey, who specializes in transplants at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.

“Hepatitis C organs used to be thrown out and now we know that we can use them for hepatitis C-positive patients, which is great,” said Dr. Verbesey. “His prognosis is great. His kidney is working very well and his hepatitis C is undetectable at this point and I expect him to have this kidney for many, many years.”

Tinker says, now that he’s benefited from the donation process, he plans to continue picking up and delivering organs for transplant.

Dr. Verbesey and her team believe they will soon be able to transplant hepatitis C-positive organs to negative recipients and treat them to cure the hepatitis C. That would allow doctors to expand the donor pool even further.
