Last spring we decided to throw a party where we invited as many writers, bloggers, editors, publishing people, and all kinds of assorted media folk to get together for an evening to drink and talk. That’s it. No readers, no presentations, no big fuss. We thought it would be something we did just once, but people kept asking us when we’d do another. So the decision finally came down that on February 26th we’re hosting the second installment of The Mingle, and our friends from Electric Literature, The New Inquiry, Gigantic, and OR Books are co-sponsoring the whole thing. Hosted by Jason Diamond and Ryan Chapman, things kick off at 6pm, and will feature an entire playlist compiled by a dozen of our favorite authors and other friends. And to get people talking to each other, there’s a special extended happy hour from 5 to 8:30, and plenty of other surprises that we will be announcing very soon. And the best part is that the whole thing is going down at our new favorite spot in Manhattan, The Dalloway.
Since the last one was such a hit, we suggest you RSVP at Facebook in the event that we hit capacity in The Dalloway’s basement. And please feel free to invite your friends. This party is for everybody.
