Traffic jams, chilly rain and falling temps could not stop Publetters’ debut in South Philly at the Pub On Passyunk East. The first letters were completed and stamped barely 30 minutes in; as we expected, there were two sincere letters to his Holiness Pope Francis. Will He Writeth Back? It has happened before! (Doobies Bar got a nice signed photo from The Pope, postmarked Vatican City)
While nearly a third of our 28 letters were staying inside city limits, we also wrote to friends and family way down in Dallas TX, way up in Cranston RI, and way over in Seattle WA. The Pope’s not the only one getting fan mail; we sent a note on posh stationery to the Screaming Females HQ in NJ. They will find it in a pile of mail after they get back from touring.
Next Publetters is Tuesday, April 14th, at P.O.P.E. (also April 21st & 28th) Starts around 7 p.m. FREE
