Manayunk is like, a Thing!

We came, we saw, we drawed!

Yes, it was better in the original Latin, we know.

In our debut at Lucky’s Last Chance, which overlooks Manayunk’s urbane Main Street, we made a very brisk start right out of the gate. We filled out some 24 letters and postcards, including this one – that really made use of that envelope’s real estate:


– And to where did we all write our letters? Well, there were some big cities– LA, DC and Chicago.  But we also reached out to friends and relations inhabiting charming small towns like Bridgewater, NY, Chester, NJ, and Gilbertsville, PA.  The hometown got some love, too,  with 8 letters staying right here in Philadelphia.

Next week, we plan to have some stamps that will help your letter to boldly go where no letters have gone before, you might say. We’ll also have the mailing addresses for a certain James T. Kirk, and his successor, Captain Jean-Luc Picard. We’ll be at Lucky’s Last Chance every Tuesday in September (9/13, 20 & 27) from about 7 to after 9. Bring your entire vocabulary and put your thoughts down in a letter or three.

Follow us on Instagram and Twitter if you like; or you may even better drop us a line with your predictions for fall, money orders, and maybe a list of people you’d like to correspond with – to:
