Twenty-eight Letters, that is–at Local 44, to give the full name of this month’s venue for the highly-esteemed-and-pressed PUBLETTERS. Our intrepid letter writers doubled the evening’s tally (we had 14 letters in our opening Tuesday) to 28 utterly sincere, ink-on-paper epistles.
…Among which were some DIY postcards with graphic cheers and jeers going out to friends and fiends. (WARNING: Trump imagery below)
Besides The Donald, we wrote to the altogether more pleasant George (Lt. Sulu) Takei, to pals in Australia, Ann Arbor and for–the first time in Publetters history–to Norcross GA and Conestoga PA. Bet those places have some good diners to visit, you know? We also dropped a line to friends in Matthew-battered Florida to let them know we’re thinking of them.
We’d like to thank Yards Brewing and Trophy Bikes for keeping Publetters FREE, and the US Postal Service for delivering billions (over 60 BILLION, to be exact) of actual First Class Mail pieces in the past year. Why not add your words to that awesome Pike’s Peak of paper? Join us for two more Tuesdays (10/18 & 10/25) at Local 44, at the corner of 44th and Spruce Street, where West Philly and University City meet and fist-bump, or shake hands as the case may be! We set out our paper, envelopes and stamps as close to 7 p.m. as possible and stride off to the mail box a bit after 9.
COMING UP: Is it even physically possible to eat a “Schmitter” – and write a letter? Find out this November, when Publetters comes to Chestnut Hill, every Tuesday night at McNally’s , 8634 Germantown Ave., just a few steps from SEPTA’s Chestnut Hill West rail stop.
