FERGIES has NO TV! It’s convenient to nearly everywhere by transit, bike and horse carriage. You could even try to drive there if you’re into that sort of thing. We snap open our Samsonite “Slim-Line” brief case (filled with stationery and stamps) at 5 p.m. and go till 7-ish p.m. approximately. Which is nice, because this overlaps with Happy Hour! Please come by and write something ON PAPER, and please PUT THE DATE ON IT for the sake of future historians and flea marketers—not to mention
your descendants. Publetters is FREE thanks to Yards Brewing and Trophy Bikes. Come on by!
