RUI @ Sheffield's

Reading Under the Influence, "because everyone needs a literary hangover," takes place at 7pm on Wednesday, February 2 (also know as Groundhog Day), at Sheffield's (3258 N. Sheffield). This month's theme is "Love, Baby!" Stop by to hear readings by Chicago writers, along with readings of the late Ric Hess's original works. Admission is $3.

ETA: From an RUI mass e-mail:
"Due to hazardous weather and travel conditions, RUI is canceled tonight and tentatively rescheduled for Wednesday, February 16th. But Sheffield's is open, so if you're in the neighborhood, stop by and say hello to the friendly bartenders."
