Which intersection of course can only be 13th and Pine. Any Tuesday this month, step inside the door at the NE corner and write a letter, or post card or both, at Dirty Frank’s Bar.
Concurrent with the above activity, enjoy a beer, or a whiskey, or both. (or a Chardonnay, or a Ginger Ale, etc.–totally up to you) When you’re done, choose a stamp, and write another letter or post card if you like (no pressure!) . We take the whole bundle to the mail box a little after 7 p.m., so don’t be too late. WE START at the dot of 5 p.m., snapping open our semi-nerdy Don Draper Samsonite “Slim-Line” brief case full of stationery. Did you not bring a pen? No worries, we have nice Pilot roller pens to lend you.
If you’re not sure who to write your letter to, ask to see our Cheat Sheet packed with the mailing addresses of all sorts of notables, from Rather Bader Ginsburg to Kevin Bacon to Tig Notaro and beyond. Remember, PUBLETTERS is FREE, thanks to those scamps at Trophy Bikes . Just add words! First one is Jan. 7; we’re at DF’s every single Tuesday in January.
Co-owner, Trophybikes in Philadelphia; live with and tolerate computers; but I also dig manual typewriters. Shoot film from time to time, as a break from the rush of digital.
