PowerHouse Books is having a fire (sale)!

This isn't a fever!

Dumbo’s powerHouse Arena (they of the multitude free, smarty-farty events) want to help you stuff some stockings or other non-denominational gift receptacles this year. From Dec. 9-Jan. 9, they’re having a fire sale of up to 90 percent off art and photography books and limited editions; plus, if you spend more than $50, you get a free art book. They’re calling it a fire sale, even though, to the best of our knowledge, there was no fire apparently there was a fire (see comments). But say it with me now: “OH MY GOD POWERHOUSE IS HAVING A FIRE … sale. OH THE BURNING.”
