Well. We snagged a BEST of PHILLY!

There it was, in black and white (and red, and purple, etc.).

Under Best Geeky Fun, sub-category, Best Fun for Literary Types – was Publetters, “…semi-regular nights in which you pen letters…” Thanks, Philly Mag.

Note Well: Publetters is now nearly as regular (maybe more) as SEPTA: We’re booked for every Tuesday night, September through December, at a different tavern each month.


President Barack Obama signs a letter to a Cuban letter writer, in the Oval Office, March 14, 2016. The first to be mailed to Cuba directly, in many years. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza) We have his mailing address–and a lot of other political addresses, including Bernie’s and Donald’s and yup, Jim Kenney’s, too.


BUT, let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

Before July is over, we have got one more Publetters at COEUR, 824 S. 8th St. this Tuesday, 7 to about 9 p.m.-ish. A few things to know: we’ll have a special guest host, Jaime Fountaine, who was “raised by wolves” according to her website. She has transcended that upbringing to host the Tire Fire Reading series, among other things. Yes, Jaime will lend you one of our loaner pens–we don’t call them “loaner pens” for nothing.

ALSO: Coeur just won “Best Poutine”, and Publetters’ stamp sponsor Trophy Bikes also won a Best of Philly. So get an award-winning bike, ride over to this award-winning event and scarf down some award-winning poutine for some winning winsomeness, why don’t you?

OK, now let’s look ahead. NO, not to Election Day! But to the torrid month of August, which will only have one (or two, maybe) Publetters. As always, DOOBIES BAR has their own special Publetters on the first Tuesday of every month. Our “residency” Publetters is off till September (Lucky’s Last Chance in MYNK more on that later) so Tuesday, August 2nd is your last, best moment for a summer Publetters inky fling–at Doobies, 22nd & Lombard.

Shore Lines? We might do a Publetters at the Jersey Shore – it will be an last momento/ad hoc thing, announced on our Instagram/Twitter/Facebook blips, so maybe go and follow them for a bit, please. Thanks, and as always,
