Since you likely cannot read the above information, here's the mighty Jen's description of the event:
"Greetings Fluffy Woodland Creatures,
Just a reminder that you already have plans this Saturday, September 24, at 9 p.m. Big plans.
You're gonna come to Greenpoint for a party celebrating the release of A Gringo Like Me on Soft Skull press, with lots of money in your pocket, dressed to the 9’s, in something very tight, and equally squeaky.
You're going to sidle up and order a drink, like you don't care who pours it. And you'll drink it, like you don't care what it is. Because you won't.
And the last you'll remember before you wake up in New Lots with your pants around your ankles, hickeys spelling out “HONEYBOY” on your ass was singing "Sweet Caroline'” like it was 1999. Because it was. *
9 p.m. A star-studded reading featuring a “Chicken Bucket” showdown with a trophy for Best Recitation.
10 p.m. A performance by The Ladies Tableaux Society of North Brooklyn. (The ladies who brought you “Fury of the Femizons”)
10:30 KARAOKE! No lie!
WHERE: The Capri Social Club (Irene’s)
156 Calyer Street btw Lorimer and Manhattan Ave.
in beeyootiful Greenpoint, Brooklyn G to Greenpoint Ave.
Forward this onto folks who don’t spook easy, and bring a buttload of people. They’ll all fit!"
WOW! Hopefully I will have pictures for you come monday.
