“The Reading Party. Silent sustained reading at a bar, because no one wants to read alone.”
The above quote that is listed on the Sorrento Hotel website for the Silent Reading Party definitely makes this event worth checking out if you want to take the experience of public silent reading that happens on a crowded Metro bus to a more comfortable and swankier locale! An article by The Stranger does a great job of giving you a more detailed feel for the event which is summed up in in the quote, “…Unexpected Sexiness of Many People Quietly Reading and Drinking in Public”.
This FREE event happens once a month in the Sorrento Hotel Fireside Room on Wednesday, May 7th from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. There are happy hour prices of course, LOTS of reading silently! Definitely get there early to grab a seat. It fills up quick!
