We are treating August as a vacation month for Publetters while we work on our writer’s pallor and consider what it might be like to wear a sweater outdoors again.


It is our solemn duty to remind you that Doobies Bar tosses a Publetters on the first Tuesday of each and every month – which in the case of August is this very Tuesday, 8/2.  We will have an interesting assortment of stationery and stamps and the almost semi-famous Publetters Cheat Sheet, packed with the addresses of the good, the bad and the ugly, from Tig Notaro to William Shatner to Donald Drumpf to Pope Francis. The room gets a bit quieter around 7 p.m. at the start and we count up and mail the whole stack around 10 p.m. – or later, if someone runs off at the fingers, so to speak!

 WHAT IS A YARDS CARD?   Read on… 


You could just recycle that empty Yards container… but you could also grab a scissors and snip out some YardsCards to let the folks back home know what you drank this summer.  US Postal Service regulations require that postcards should measure from 3 & 1/2″ by 4 & 1/4″ to 4 & 1/4 by 6 inches.  Both these YardsCards are a little bigger than regulation: they need a First-Class stamp to get to their destination.

Publetters is PRESENTED BY YARDS BREWING COMPANY, with stamps courtesy of Trophy Bikes; stationery provided by the skilled craftsmen of Northern Liberty Press.  Publetters is FREE, of course–just bring words, and arrange them together in whatever order you feel will most please the person you’re writing to.

COMING UP: Publetters has a full schedule this fall: We will be doing month-long Tuesday night residencies at: McNally’s, Local 44, Lucky’s Last Chance and Doobies. For complete details, watch this space, or subscribe to our pesky little Instagram and Twitter feeds on your, um,  mobile device.
