Tuesday Funk Branches Out

Gapers Block is proud to be the new sponsor of Tuesday Funk, "Chicago's eclectic monthly reading series, where good writing and good beer mix" at the Hopleaf.

The next reading is this Tuesday, May 7, and features Suzanne Clores, Mary Beth Hoerner, Robert McDonald, Dion Walton and former co-host Sara Ross Witt. Hosts William Shunn and Andrew Huff will also read.

The reading begins at 7:30pm in the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf, 5148 N. Clark St.; doors open at 7pm and no earlier. Arrive early for a table and grab a beer from Mark at the bar (where credit cards are now accepted!) Admission is always free, but you must be 21 or older. And come early or stay late after for some great Belgian-style food downstairs. Hope to see you there!
