Booze & Books: A Pop-up Book Fair @ The Empty Bottle

Curbside Splendor Publishing just announced the 3rd installment in their sensational series of POP-UP BOOK FAIRS for voracious readers, and Litereati is so there! Come spend the afternoon of Sunday, July 7th with us browsing books, sipping spirits and mingling with authors and publishers. 

40+ of the finest independent publishers, presses and booksellers from Chicago and around the world will be on hand hawking their masterpieces from 12:30pm until 5pm at Chicago's finest venue for underground music The Empty Bottle. Quimby's Bookstore will also stock a table with a selection of books-n-zines penned purely by Chicagoans -- be sure you stop by and check out what your neighbors are writing. The bar will be open so grab a cocktail (or three) and rock out to live DJ Sets by Chicago Writers all afternoon as you rub elbows with our city's star-studded literary community. 

Tickets are $5.00 at the door, but you can get a special FREE PASS by clicking here:

I'll be there betwen 1pm and 3pm, so come find me when you arrive (I'll be wearing a Litereati nametag) or text me at (773)[masked] and we'll hook up.  This event is 21+ only -- bring your ID and some drinking money!  The nearby Bite Cafe comes highly recommended for those who get the munchies during the event. 

Thanks to Kate Sutcliffe for suggesting this adventure for us intelligent foodies!  As always, your comments, questions and suggestions are welcome, so email me at [masked] and I'll get right back to you.
