FREE Zinester’s Guide to NYC Release Party

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

If you buy one travel book about NYC, it should be Broke Ass Stuart’s. If you buy a second, it should be the Zinester’s Guide to NYC by Ayun Halliday. Broke Ass Stuarts lists just about every decent dive bar in the metro area, while the zinester’s guide encourages people to play bike polo in parks.

If you’re too broke to buy either, you can just go Housing Works Bookstore Cafe tomorrow night for the release party of the Zinester’s Guide to NYC.Bushwick Book Club will be playing songs based on entries from the guide. Contributors will have a mini-zine fair, so you can score some zines and comics. Guests can also compete for low budget prizes in a game called the $2 pyramid. (And buy a snack, the proceeds go to help fight AIDS and help the homeless).

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.
