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.
P.S. Write us on paper: PUBLETTERS c/o mcget, 627 S. 27th St. Phila. PA 19146
P.P.S.: Have to got an interesting person’s mailing address that you think should be on our cheat sheet, please send it to us at the address above. Do you wish we had a certain address on our cheat sheet? Ask, again by mail… and we will try to find/add it.
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.
FIRST EVER Publetters on South Street was last Tuesday, at TATTOOED MOM, where the writing is most definitely on the wall. We missed you! Looking forward to a very busy bunch of Tuesdays, writing to friends, foes and our elected officials. We did write to Sen. Pat “no Town Hall” Toomey, and to friends in England and South Philly….
NOTE: one important change–earlier start time. We will set out stationery, stamps, loaner pens and our cheat sheet of addresses at 6:00 p.m (rather than the usual 7:01 p.m.), and finish up by 9. Still FREE, thanks to the women and men of Yards Brewing Co., and Trophy Bikes, “The Shop That’s Open a Lot!” NEXT ONE: Tuesday, March 14, at T-Mom’s 530 South Street.
