Learn How to Lie, Cheat and Steal for FREE

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

I immediately start singing the Tool song Intolerance in my head when I hear the words, “Lie, cheat, and steal” together, because Tool is permanently lodged in my subconscious after listening to them a lot in high school. In general, I’m not a liar, cheater (except at board games) or thief, but I do enjoy hearing stories about other people who are. If you’re also a vicarious cheater and thief, or if you want to learn how to be a better liar, go to Happy Ending tonight. It’s another installment of their “How I Learned” reading series, and people will be sharing their adventures of how they learned to lie, cheat, and steal. And Happy Ending usually has good DJs, so you can spend your entire night in their poorly lit basement.

Kiley E - Ragamuffin Researcher

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
