Farewell (for a while) to Chestnut Hill

Tonight, take shelter from the (warmish) rain inside the snug confines of McNally’s Tavern, very near the highest point in Philadelphia. We will lay out the pens and stationery and US Postal Service stamps very near to 7 p.m. and go till well after 9 p.m.  Here’s our full-color flyer, just as a visual reminder. You may have seen these tacked up in cafes, yoga joints, bookstores and laundromats along Germantown Avenue!


This will be our last evening at McNally’s, so grab am umbrella and come on out. (it’s just a few paces from the SEPTA Chestnut Hill West rail station)  •  •  •  As  November shifts into December, we make our monthly shift of location–we’ll be in Doobies Bar for all of December.  Patti Brett, Doobie’s fearless proprietor, will be laying out some special holiday cards to make things a bit more festive. Doobies, BTW, is where Publetters first made the leap from a flaky idea to an actual flaky event. Doobies also holds the record for the most letters and cards (79!) hand-written in a single Publetters evening.

•  If you’ve never been to Doobies: • 

1) They always have an interesting selection of beers on tap, and some plain old regular beers if you don’t want to be all fancy.  2) They have one table that is fragile and you can’t move it. Don’t even try.  3) GREAT jukebox, one of the best we have ever seen.

Here’s the flyer, and if you can Spot The Differences, then you will no doubt find us at 22nd & Lombard Streets, any Tuesday next month. First one is Tuesday, 12/6. FREE, as always–thanks to Yards Brewing and Trophy Bikes.  Same timing, i.e., we start at about 7 p.m. and go till well after 9-ish. flyer_publetters_doobies_square_color
