It's nearly upon us, rising from the east and lurching crookedly west, closing inexorably upon Clark Street. No, it's not the sun, it's Tuesday Funk, the monthly Chicago reading series where good writing and good beer mix, and the five shambling readers we've summoned together to populate 38th big episode. And the fact that you can be there for it all for no more than the price of an ice-cold beer or two makes being there a no-brrraaaains-er.
Our improbably animated lineup tonight includes William Shunn, C.P. Chang, Erin J. Shea, Matt Darst, and Liz Baudler, and we'll throw in one of our patented Poems By Bill for no extra charge. So "like" us today on Facebook, arrive early, stake out a table in Hopleaf's upstairs lounge, grab a beer from the bar, and let's all huddle together like it's the zombie apocalypse.
Hopleaf is at 5148 N. Clark St. in Chicago. The reading begins at 7:30 pm in the upstairs lounge. The lounge opens at 7:00 pm. Arrive early for a seat!
As always, the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf is cash-only and 21 and over. Remember also that no food can be brought in from the restaurant.
