Tuesday Funk : About

Cesar Torres at Tuesday Funk Tuesday Funk is Chicago's eclectic monthly reading series, bringing you a variety of fiction, poetry, essays, and other works, in all genres, read live by the authors. Our readings take place at 7:30 pm on the first Tuesday of every month, in the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf Bar. Doors open at 7:00 pm. Tuesday Funk is always free to attend, but only those 21 and over can be admitted.

Every episode of Tuesday Funk includes five readers, plus such regular features as our Haiku by Andrew. Personal essays, science fiction, verse—like your favorite magazine, you never know quite what you might get, but you know it'll always be interesting. Intermission gives audience members a chance to grab one of dozens of varieties of international beers, though our bartender will remain available to serve you throughout the reading. Start to finish, the program will last between 90 minutes and two hours. Hopleaf upstairs lounge, pre-Tuesday Funk If you'd like to eat in Hopleaf's dining room before the show, leave yourself plenty of time, since your food can't be brought into the upstairs lounge during the show.

Tuesday Funk was founded in 2008 by Connor Coyne as the official reading series of Gothic Funk Nation. Past hosts include Reinhardt Suarez, Hallie Gordon Palladino, Sara Ross Witt, and William Shunn. Our current hosts are Andrew Huff (since April 2013) and Eden Robins (since January 2014).

Hopleaf Bar is located at 5148 N. Clark St., just a few doors south of Foster. It is easily reached by public transportation and taxicabs are usually plentiful. Metered street parking is available. Meters run daily until 9pm.

By train: The Berwyn stop of the CTA's Red Line is an easy 6-block walk (stroll through the Lakewood-Balmoral historical district) or transfer to the #92 Foster bus when you get out of the station.

By bus: #92 Foster; #22 Clark (bus stops right across the street).
