We had a very encouraging start to this long (FIVE Tuesdays’ run) October at The Bishop’s Collar, a Fairmount pub of the classic variety. Letter-writing recidivists Woody D. and Robert E set the tone early, and we had 22 letters and post cards tumble into the mail box before last call. We wrote to the 45th, er, President of the United States, to pals in Golden’s Bridge, NY, to Postmaster Shannon Mitchell, who runs the smallest US Post Office in the U.S. in Ochopee, FL, and to friends and relations in Croton-on-Hudson, and London-on-Thames – as nobody calls it. A couple of respectful post cards went to a complicated man, U.S. Sen. John McCain AND we also wrote to Maria Paternoster, the astonishing lead guitarist/vocalist for the Screaming Females, in New Brunswick NJ.

Hope you liked that…! And we further hope you will come by any (or every) Tuesday this month (see dates above!) and put pen to paper. Next one: October 10. We will stack up the stationery starting at about 7:02, (give or take) and go till 9-ish. FREE, of course, thanks to Yards Brewing and Trophy Bikes. (a symbiotic relationship if ever there was one: Beer has carbs and Bikes burn them)
LOOKING AHEAD: We will close out this, er, “challenging” year of 2017 at Fergies on Tuesdays in November (starts early–6pm to 8pm), and Doobies for December, regular time of 7-9ish.
