Bridgewaters Pub is tucked just steps from one of the grandest public spaces in Philadelphia, the main waiting room of Amtrak 30th Street Station. Bridgewaters has handsome woody interior, a kitchen several notches above your usual tavern, and offers a deep selection of beers on tap and in bottles. So we are very happy to host Publetters there each and every Tuesday in September, from 7 to 9 p.m. Our first letter-writing session is September 5th. Join us!
Bridgewaters Pub is located in the South Concourse of 30th Street Station, at the NE corner of 30th and Market Streets. There is, basically, NOWHERE that doesn’t somehow connect to this mighty train terminal. Every SEPTA Regional Rail Line makes a stop here; as do many Amtrak lines, NJT’s Atlantic City Line, the Boltbus and Megabus, SEPTA’s Market-Frankford Line, and all five Subway-Surface trolley lines, and a ton of city buses. It’s 2 min. by bike from the Schuylkill River Trail, and you can dock your Indego bikeshare right outside. • • • You can even find metered parking if you insist on driving a motor vehicle!
In short, if you want to come to Publetters, boy, is this an easy one.
[ Note Well: Publetters is FREE of charge, thanks to Trophy Bikes and Yards Brewing Company, makers of Philly Pale Ale, to name our personal Yards fave.]

Here is a stack of more than three dozen letters, some going around the corner, others going all the way to Ghana, West Africa, and at least one going to George Takei. Next Tuesday (7/25) is our last Publetters of July, our last at Era and our last PL of the summer (we’re taking August off to rest our little digits, though us all and you all will doubtless send our share of postcards as independent study projects!). Please swing by Era Bar & Restaurant, 2743 Poplar Street in Brewerytown, NOT to be confused with “Art Museum Area, or Fairmount, or Forgotten Bottom, for that matter.
We will start writing letters at the crack of 7-ish and end sometime after 9 p.m., to be inexact! It’s free, all because of Yards Brewing (Makers of our favorite sessionistic beer: Brawler) and Trophy Bikes (The Shop That’s Open a Lot).
Watch this space, or our little bitty Instagram and Twitter feeds, for our
triumphant sheepish return to a bar TBD on Tuesday, September 5th!
Thanks for reading and writing….
— your Publetters crew.

Trot (or gallop) down to South Philly tonight!
We’ll be writing cards and letters and drinking beer at the Pub On Passyunk East this evening (and every Tuesday in May) at the P.O.P.E, where Dickinson diagonals rakishly across Passyunk Ave. •. Join us from 7 to 9ish; it’s FREE, thanks to Yards
Brewing + Trophy
Bikes. • OH–and if you like things more compact–maybe follow @publetters on Instagram, FB and Twitter!
Well, we defied STELLA, and scritched and scratched a stack of cards and letters (28 in all, not bad for a frigid Tuesday) to all sorts of lovely people–and to Sen. Pat TOOMEY. (see below for a sample)
We also dropped a line to good old Joe BIDEN, at his fave haunt, the CHARCOAL PIT down in Delaware. Please join us next Tuesday, when the forecast is a balmy 51 degrees, with a 70% chance of a light sprinkle and a 100% chance of letters!
Sometimes a simple, er, graphic is all you want to send to our elusive Senator from PA.
Remember, Publetters is at Tattooed Mom every Tuesday this month, starts at 6 pm., ends pretty promptly at 9; FREE, thanks to Trophy Bikes and Yards Brewing Co.
