Seth Hurwitz and the wasp
Yesterday, I grabbed Virgin Mobile FreeFest producer Seth Hurwitz for a quick interview.
I asked him about the difference between Pimlico Race Course and Merriweather Post Pavilion.
Merriweather might have a less storied history than Pimlico, but its sprawling grounds suited this year’s scaled-back festival, Hurwitz said.
"[Merriweather] is not an exotic site, but it has its own ambiance," he said.
Just then, a yellow jacket wasp flew onto Hurwitz’s face and stung him on the forehead ...
"Is the stinger out?," he asked. I couldn't see a stinger, I told him.
"Make sure it's gone," I said. We looked for it, and realized it was crawling on Hurwitz's leg near his crotch. Hurwitz shooed the bee away.
"We had the Police one year," he quipped. "I thought we were done with sting."
