In only a few hours, the Jack & Gin fundraiser-open mic-party begins.
Bacaro Venetian Tavern (921 w. Pearl St.) at 7 p.m.
Come. Drink. Be merry. Celebrate Jack Kerouac and Bombay Gin by sipping Jack & Gin. There’s also an open mic, so come with work to read, if you like.
Don’t worry if you haven’t purchased raffle tickets yet because we’ll be selling them at the door for $10. If you’re planning on getting a ticket and don’t for whatever reason, you’ll be kicking yourself later.
We’ve had an outpouring of donations from local businesses and authors: two tickets to Elephant Revival at the Boulder Theater, five yoga classes at The Yoga Pod, signed broadsides from Jack Collom, Harryette Mullen and Lawrence Ferlinghetti, and gift cards to Buffalo Exchange, Trident, OmTime, Southern Sun Pub and Ozo Coffee.
Not to mention, we also have signed copies of books from Laird Hunt, Anne Waldman and Michelle Naka Pierce. And: we’re also giving a rare copy of Sara Veglahn’s chapbook.
Ultimately: please come, even if you do not purchase a raffle ticket or read at the open mic. Either way, we’ll be happy to have your support.
Hope to see everyone who can make it tonight!
