Ever wonder where all of NYC’s most talented writers, performers, musicians and artists hang out on the second Tuesday (sometimes Wednesday) of the month?

That’s right… Freddy’s Bar! Come thru for laughs, epiphanies, hullabaloos and broadcasts as the cities’ best serenade and sweep you into a killer fucking night!

What’s that you say? The whole shit is FREE?! All this awesome for nothing?! Well yes, but we will also be taking donations so that we can keep bringing you chapbooks featuring all your friendly neighborhood poets, writers and artists.

Freddy’s is notorious for cheap, strong-ass drinks so pull up a chair next to the spirit of Frank O’Hara and have a Whiskey Coke with him. (I’m sure he wouldn’t mind a vodka tonic either)
