Tuesday Funk on the First

Tuesday Funk for July 1, 2014

Three days before Independence Day, Tuesday Funk will celebrate its independence from genre! The 71st edition of Chicago's eclectic monthly reading series will feature Norman Doucet, Lisa Kirchner, Evan Okun, Sheri Reda and Lisa White. Gapers Block's own Andrew Huff and Eden Robins will stand defiant as cohosts.

The reading gets underway on Tuesday, July 1, 2014, at 7:30pm in the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf, 5148 N. Clark St., Chicago. Doors open at 7pm sharp -- but not earlier, as much as we'd like to l et you in. Arrive early for a table and grab a beer from Mark at the bar. Arrive even earlier or stay afterwards for a full meal downstairs. Admission is free, but you must be 21 or older.

RSVP on Facebook and bring a friend. See you on the first of July!
