When: Thursday, November 13 7:00pm – 10:30pm MST
Bombay Gin is pleased to announce an evening of reading and fundraising that is not to be missed. The festivities begin at 7pm on Thursday, November 13th with a reading featuring Boulder Tribe poet Jonathan Montgomery, Sacramento poet Ike Torres, and an open mic. Then at 9pm, the party gets started in the name of raising money to support the thriving of Bombay Gin. Refreshments will be served, conversations will be had, and most importantly, prizes will be won!
During the party, we will have a silent auction where you can bid on some mind blowing opportunities with some of your favorite poets. So far we have these confirmed items for your bidding pleasure:
A cassette tape made just for you by Thurston Moore

We will also have a raffle with prizes from City Lights, Les Figues Press, Counterpath, Factory Hollow Press, Boulder Book Store, Innisfree, Buchanan’s, and Cinemark.
