Tamale Hut Reading Series @ Tamale Hut Cafe

Head on out to the near west suburbs this Saturday for the Tamale Hut Reading Series. Columbia MFA candidate Jenny Seay hosts this always welcoming, roughly monthly event. This Saturday's featured reader is Andrew Reilly, an ensemble member of 2nd Story. Visitors encouraged to get scribblin' and participate in the open mic. Tamales are buy two, get one free, and the event is BYOB, making for a cheap date. About three miles from Brookfield Zoo, so make a day of it. Tamale Hut Cafe, 8300 W. Cermak Road, North Riverside, August 21 at 7pm.
