raincoaster media ltd presents:
The Shebeen Club:
A Literati's Christmas In Gastown
When: 7pm till whenever, Tuesday, December 20th, 2005
Where: Upstairs @ the Irish Heather, 217 Carrall Street, Gastown, Vancouver BC
How: just show up and order off the menu. Easy! Or email lorraine.murphy@... if you feel like it
How Much: pay for what you order. Don't forget to tip!
What: Literary mingling, celebrating, season-keeping, festing (festivating?), and merry-making of all descriptions
Who: The usual suspects and anyone who wants to hang out and drink with Vancouver's literati
Special Instructions: Bring your friends and the name and author of your favorite holiday story. We'll be putting together a list of everyone's favorites and posting it on the website for deeply scholarly research purposes. Ho, ho, ho!
Join the Shebeen Club regulars for a brief respite from spending time with beloved family members.
"We learn many things from our parents, as Hamlet can attest: abuse, deceit, vulgarity, condescension, hypocrisy, corruption, invasions of privacy, authoritarianism – and murderous rages."
So why hang out with them? Take a break and a drink with us. The evening will be unstructured, with no presentations. Drop in, drop out, and hang out with the Shebeeners. We'll do separate bills, and don't forget that this once, the Shebeen Club will be in the Irish Heather, upstairs where the tourists usually go. There will be a special seasonal beverage TBA, but I can promise you it won't be Hot Tom & Jerry, no matter how charming one may find it in Runyon's "Dancin' Dan's Christmas". One was once traumatized by a Hot Tom & Jerry or ten. I…uh…read it somewhere.
Bring the title of your favorite literary winterlude and its author (well okay, if he's dead just leave him there), and we'll make up a list of the Shebeener's Seasonal Favorites to pass around and show how erudite and shit we all are. Charles Dickens, Dylan Thomas, Henry VIII, Thomas Ligotti, Charles Schultz: you name it! Yes, scripts count too, but if you're going to list one of those, toss in a book or story for good measure.
