January Reading in NYC


The Sunday reading series at Parkside Lounge in the Lower East Side is crazy enough to give me a feature alongside someone with a valid Wikipedia entry. That sure does make me glad I support their foundation. (Do you??)

Catch me Sunday January 19th as I co-feature with Ron Kolm of The Unbearables. We'll be at the best little dive bar in all of Manhattan. I know this personally from the days when my liver said I could have a drink. It's the perfect way to spend your early Sunday evening. Promise.
