Kidlit Drink Night: March Edition
March may come in like a lion and out like a lamb, but at The Blue Owl we’re counting on people relaxing in an environment where spring-related thoughts reign free. Yes, it’s the semi-monthly Kid Lit Drink Night once again. A time when children’s literary enthusiasts meet at bars and baffle the waitstaff as they discuss the relative merits (or lack thereof) of various titles, authors, etc. My partner in crime Cheryl Klein and I hold these fairly regularly and if you haven’t been to one before, now’s the time.
HOWEVER! The Blue Owl, while a lovely bar, has a single outstanding flaw. If you Mapquest or Google Map it and then stand across the street you will find it remarkably hard to spot. Yes, this is one of those places where you will find steps taking you down to the bar. From the street it is not immediately apparent and certainly not from across the street. You have been warned. And now the details:
Where: The Blue Owl, 196 2nd Avenue. We’ll have the room in the front near the door (I believe).
When: Monday, March 30th, starting at 6:00 p.m.
Kidlit Drink Nights are for anyone who wants to discuss children’s literature. Mention a YA novel and we pitch you out the door. . . . Naw, I’m kidding.
