Dewey Drinks Tonight! December 11, 2008

This month at Dewey Drinks, we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Gary Public Library of Gary, Indiana.

deweyWe will gather starting at 7pm tonight, Thursday the 11th, in the Game Room of Sandrina’s.

Sandrina’s is located at 5098 Arsenal (right by the big State Hospital with the dome). It is convenient to the #30 Soulard and #95 Kingshighway buses. Sandrina’s has yummy Italian food (menu at sandrinasstl.com) and is open ’til 3AM! The Game Room is upstairs, so ask the bartender to direct you when you get there.

If you can make it tonight, please bring a coupla bucks or your spare change or whatever to donate to the Gary Public Library.  I’ll have a
jar out, and afterwards I will send them a check for the total amount
on behalf of Dewey Decimal Drinks. I know things are tight for
everyone right now, but dang, literacy in Gary, IN, is a worthy cause
if ever I’ve heard of one. More info about the centennial of the Gary
Public Library is available at:

And oh yeah, tomorrow is my birthday as well (I will be 1/4 as old as
the Gary Public Library). Unlike the Gary Public Library, which
prefers money or books, I accept birthday donations in beer.

Here’s to another 100 years, Gary Public!

I hope to see you tonight!

always reading between the lines,
Claire-ian the Librarian
