And you can meet Dave Barry, you guys.

On Tuesday, April 8, the Broward Bulldog -- a nonprofit dedicated to hard-hitting investigative pieces -- is hosting a night with best-selling author and Miami Herald columnist Dave Barry at Nova Southeastern University's Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale.

The 6:30 p.m. talk will feature Barry dishing on his new book You Can Date Boys When You're Forty, which the author describes on the event page thusly:

"It mentions parenting, but it covers many other topics, including things a man should know: grammar, sex, camels and what women want," Barry says.

Speaking of what a man should know how to do -- the book also features advice on how to ride horses.

"Mount the horse by firmly grasping the fetlock, inserting your foot deep into the bridle and, with a thrusting motion, raising yourself until your thighs are straddling the horse's loin quarters. At this point, it is perfectly normal for both of you to be sexually aroused."

The Broward Bulldog was started by Dan Christensen -- whose been a reporter/editor for 40-plus years -- in 2009 and the site has grown because of watchdog pieces that get picked up by the mainstream media, like the story Christensen wrote after 9/11 about a Saudi family living in Sarasota with ties to to hijackers.

Alas, if you want to save investigative journalism, you don't necessarily have to do any of the heavy lifting -- just come laugh at Dave Barry.

General-admission tickets for the 6:30 p.m. talk and subsequent book signing cost $30. Limited tickets, which include a preshow meeting with Barry at 5:30 p.m. and a VIP cocktail reception, cost $90. Visit here for more information.

..............my daughter went to the BILTMORE to see the 50 shades author E L James FOR FREE (and of course already bought three books to get signed)

WHY pay $30 ? that doesn't include the book - right ?  just general admission to listen to a few words and if you want to stand in line and already HAVE A BOOK you can get it signed - what in that statement cost $30 ? the priviledge ? to listen to something i can hear else where later ? what if i carried the book around and saw him somewhere else - would he charge me $30 then also ?

i am a fan of barry and follow the bulldog and use the NOVA public library BUT i draw the line at gouging and making something educational and informative which is already free a bogus expensive "priviledge"
