What's shaking tonight? My money's on the Litquake/Porchlight Writers, Muses, Flacks, and Escorts story telling event at the Swedish American Hall. Sip, listen, and "...Wander into the
world of writers, muses, flacks, and escorts who will tell their
stories of frustration, woe, relief, and sometimes comic humiliation as
they pursue their vocation. In addition to Sean Wilsey and his mother
Pat Montandon, the evening will feature Marcus Ewert, Arielle Eckstut,
Kathi Kamen Goldmark, Joyce Maynard, Eddie Muller, and Jack Boulware." (Text gently lifted off the Litquake website).
The drink opps are just as exciting-locally produced (would Michael Pollan be proud?), high quality, and so on. Lou Bustamante of St. George Spirits will serve up Montandon-tinis with Hangar One Buddha's Hand Citron vodka. Lou also promises some whiskey, served neat. Litquake staff and most-excellent bartenders Christie Ward and Alan Black will have other options like Speakeasy Big Daddy IPA (a whole keg!), Anchor Steam, wine, and more.
I'll be checking names and taking ticket money at the door, with my fellow Litquake committee member, Tara. Stop by and say hi.
