The n+1 boys got ripped off at their benefit over the weekend to the tune of three grand, reports the New York Sun.

But Dave Eggers did that back in the 90’s, man! “Once, after an event aimed at raising money for his upstart magazine”–that would be McSweeney’s–“he left his backpack, containing $2,200 in $5 bills, in the cab on the way home,” says the Denver Post archives, of a story originally (supposedly) recounted in the New Yorker.
