This Friday night: Poetry is For Lovers, Not Haters

Dear Hearts and Flowers,

Join us this Friday night, Valentine's Day (2/14), at 7 pm, for a very special reading, featuring the love ballads of:

Todd Colby!
Adam Fitzgerald!
Lonely Christopher!
Arthur Seefahrt!

As well, we will be featuring "The Sexton Sweetheart," a special cocktail celebrating the poetry of Anne Sexton. The cocktail will be like her poems, strong and full of pomegranate and bourbon, with a kick.

Invite your Facebook friends here.

See you on Friday!
