Sunny’s Nights is Tim’s ode to a strangely wonderful bar and the strangely wonderful man who stands at its helm. Born next to the saloon that has been in his family for one hundred years, Sunny has over the years partied with Andy Warhol, spent time in India at the feet of a guru, and painted abstract expressionist originals. But his masterpiece is the bar itself, a place where artists, mobsters, honky-tonk musicians, neighborhood drunks, nuns, longshoremen, and assorted eccentrics rub elbows.

Enter below for a chance to win a free copy for yourself. It will give you and Sunny something to talk about the next time you’re at his bar.
