Whether you are a theater buff, bookworm, or a music lover, this Wednesday, April 23rd, is chalk-full with options that are LESS COST:
OPTION #1 BOOK WORMS + MUSIC LOVERS
Bushwick Book Club is staging one of their amazing not-your-run-of-the-mill bookclub events at The Royal Room in Columbia City. The book that will inspire a range of local musicians to write and perform original songs is a Ballard writer’s (Molly Wizenberg) A Homeade Life. The book itself was inspired by blog posts about cooking and life so it comes as no surprise the the event will also have a meal you can purchase for $25. No worries if you do not want the meal as the event has NO COVER CHARGE but request you tip the musicians and purchase at least one drink (Proceeds from the evening go to support Bushwick Club’s educational programming).
Starts at 8 p.m.
