We’re in the home stretch for 2017– at DOOBIES BAR this very DECEMBER

OK, do you really want to be part of the throng who vow to stay more in touch with their friends and relations … in the New Year?

Why wait to make a resolution? – take action now and put it in writing at PUBLETTERS, every single Tuesday in December at the place where it all began–DOOBIES BAR at 22nd & Lombard Streets, where Center City bumps into Southwest Center City and mumbles, “Hey, sorry, I didn’t see you there!”


Settle down with a good drink, and a nice sheet of stationery or perhaps a handsome post card in front of you. (we provide everything, even stamps and loaner pens) Put your words onto the page as people have done for centuries when they want to reach out to someone they care about. Repeat as desired. We count up the letters at the end and even walk them to the U.S. Postal Service Mail Box  –clunk!– for you.

We will be starting at our usual 7:05 p.m. (give or take a minute or two) and going till 9-ish at Doobies; first one is December 5th. (And the 12th, 19th & 26th) We hope to see you at one or all of those pleasant evenings. AS ALWAYS, Publetters is FREE, thanks to Trophy Bikes (the shop that’s open a lot)  and Yards Brewing (makers of Chocolate Love Stout).

REMINDER: always write your city and the full date at the top –because paper mail can last one thousand years and this will give future historians a vital clue!
