Babylon Salon this Saturday Night

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

If you’re like me and enjoy pretending that you’re literate, you should check out Saturday’s Babylon Salon.  Not only will there be good writers reading their good work, there will also be good drinks.  That’s a lot of good.  Let’s just hope for goodness sake that Cantina offers some decent drink specials.  Here’s all the info below:

On Saturday, March 6, Babylon Salon presents award-winning authors Peter Orner, Kemble Scott, and Toni Mirosevich. Peter Orner’s work has appeared in Best American Stories and twice awarded a Pushcart prize. His story “The Raft” is being made into a film starring Ed Asner. Kemble Scott is the  bestselling author of the novels SoMa and The Sower. Toni Mirosevich wrote Pink Harvest and four collections of poetry including My Oblique Strategies, winner of the Frank O’Hara Award. Also featured are Gravity Goldberg, editor of the San Francisco lit mag Instant City, and writers Matt Stewart and Kristina Marusic. The reading starts at 7:30 PM at Cantina SF and is free.

Broke-Ass Stuart - Editor In Cheap

Stuart Schuffman, aka Broke-Ass Stuart, is a travel writer, poet, TV host, activist, and general shit-stirrer. His website is one of the most influential arts & culture sites in the San Francisco Bay Area and his freelance writing has been featured in Lonely Planet, Conde Nast Traveler, The Bold Italic, and too many other outlets to remember. His weekly column, Broke-Ass City, appears every other Thursday in the San Francisco Examiner. Stuart’s writing has been translated into four languages. In 2011 Stuart created and hosted the travel show Young, Broke, and Beautiful on IFC and in 2015 he ran for Mayor of San Francisco and got nearly 20k votes.
