Morning Oopsy: WCP Edition

It was a Thursday afternoon Double Oopsy. Early in the day, we received WCP’sToDo” email telling us about happenings around town. One of the events was listed as:

Chinese authorities have prevented artist Ai Weiwei from seeing his first major U.S. retrospective, which opens at the Hirshhorn this weekend. Tonight’s panelists, including Hirshhorn curators Kerry Brougher and Mika Yoshitake, will have to make do with his absence. The discussion, “The Artist in Contemporary China,” starts at 5 p.m. at the Hirshhorn Museum, 7th and Independence Ave. SW. Free. RSVP here.

Later, they sent out an email with the subject line “We goofed! CORRECTION!”

OOPSY. Not only did WCP get the location wrong, but the event had sold out by the time they corrected it. Hope you guys checked your email later in the day before making plans. (To give credit where credit is due, at least they were honest and fessed up, which WCP has been known to do in the past.)
