“… to Boldly Go… To MANAYUNK…”

The atmosphere at Lucky’s Last Chance is nearly identical to that of Earth – or “Center City”, as some call it.  There is a surface transport hub operated by S.E.P.T.A. just a short distance from Lucky’s. Our group will gather to take part in a popular local custom, Publetters, in which we inscribe personal thoughts and stories on a sheet made of wood pulp. The sheet is then sealed into an envelope (also made of wood pulp) and placed in a steel “Post Office” box on the street. The next morning, a representative of this region’s government will gather up the letters and they will be transported to the individuals whose names and coordinates are written on the envelope.


We will supply to you the mail coordinates for Kirk, Uhura, Picard  AND Sulu, should you wish to attempt communications with them by this “paper mail.”  Join us every Tuesday in September (including tonight, 9/13) at Lucky’s Last Chance, 4421 Main St. This activity commences at 7:01 p.m.; the letters are gathered up and walked to the mail box a little after 9 p.m. It’s free, and yes, we will lend you a pen!
