McSweeney's Issue 34 Release with FREE Food

Where dreams are made. And nightmares.

Offices filled with industrious people who come in seven days a week, rain or shine, in sickness and in health, aren’t just a glowing example of a desperate job economy and job-loss fear. Offices filled with industrious people who come in seven days a week, rain or shine, in sickness and in health are also petri dishes filled with germs and poor air circulation. That’s how I got the stomach flu.

So here I sit, too delirious to read and too nauseated to eat. Two of my favorite pastimes robbed of me.  Well, here’s an event that combines the two and you don’t have to miss out. Unless you work in a poorly ventilated office. My doctor said it’s going around big-time. Something to look forward to!

When is a Dave Eggers-affiliated event ever bad?

It’s the McSweeney’s issue #34 release event at Books, Inc. in the Marina, featuring Nick McDonell, Tom Barbash, and Daniel Handler. Even cooler, Meze’s, the Mediterranean restaurant next door gives out FREE appetizer tasting plates to everyone that comes in before or after every “Meet the Author” event at Books, Inc.

About the author

Chloe - Pennywise Reporter

Chloe's youth was split between California and Kauai, frolicking on a macadamia nut farm in the tropics and landing finally in the Bay Area. Raised by super-Jew hippies, and the youngest of three sisters, Chloe learned early the virtues of thrift, economy, and green living. To the chagrin of her parents (who hoped, of course, for a Jewish doctor or lawyer), Chloe has put her degree from UC Berkeley to great use by becoming a folk singer. As "Chloe Makes Music" she plays shows throughout SF and beyond, donning vintage frocks, selling handmade merch, and pinching pennies as she sings for her supper. Calling Berkeley home for the last six years, you can think of Chloe as the website's East Bay Correspondent, opening your eyes to the hippie-filled, tree-hugging, organic-loving, vegan-eating, but way-overlooked and awesome assets of Berkeley, Oakland, and beyond.
