Headed for the Standard Tap…

We finished up January at Fergies Pub with a solid stack of 49 letters and postcards. Sean Spicer, D. Trump, and Barack Obama will be hearing from us–in writing. You should know that we sent our first-ever Publetter to the town of … Continue reading

Goodbye to 2016, we can certainly say without hesitation…

We may not have felt much love for this passing year, but we shared affection and opinion with our fellows at the last Publetters of the year, in the comfy confines of Doobies Bar, 22nd & Lombard Sts. We wrote … Continue reading

Well-Done, Doobies!

Fantastic! We scratched out 50 letters and cards to Athens OH, Brattleboro VT, and to those men and women who are still needing a home, at the Sunday Breakfast Mission, among others. This despite a persistent, chilly, Casablanca-esque drizzle. Thanks … Continue reading

We’ll Keep On Writing Letters, That’s One Thing We Shall Do.

Joe BIDEN–you just keep being you, OK?  … is perhaps what it says inside this one, written earlier this week. We didn’t stop there; we wrote to Salcha, AK, for the first time ever, and we didn’t forget about the Tavern … Continue reading

Let’s climb Chestnut Hill, shall we?

It was a very good October at Local 44, and we had an impressive list of letter (and postcard) destinations to reflect upon:  Vatican City, Bangkok, Sheboygan, Svit, and Upper Darby, to name a very few. We wrote to The Pope (see … Continue reading

28 at 44!

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 … Continue reading

“… to Boldly Go… To MANAYUNK…”

The atmosphere at Lucky’s Last Chance is nearly identical to that of Earth – or “Center City”, as some call it.  There is a surface transport hub operated by S.E.P.T.A. just a short distance from Lucky’s. Our group will gather to take … Continue reading

Manayunk is like, a Thing!

We came, we saw, we drawed! Yes, it was better in the original Latin, we know. In our debut at Lucky’s Last Chance, which overlooks Manayunk’s urbane Main Street, we made a very brisk start right out of the gate. We filled out … Continue reading

In the noisy, crowded pub, she picked up her pen…

… A-Ha’s one and only hit single was blasting out of the jukebox; Fergie’s Pub was rattling with chatter and laughter. But she heard only the words she was putting onto the page–and just as her group made to leave–she … Continue reading

One For The Box!

We missed some of you at Fergie’s  on Tuesday, June 7–for the first Publetters session there.  We wrote to our kids, to Tig Notaro, to some, er, “associates” in L.A., and to Mom & Dad, to name a few–actually, tons … Continue reading
