$7 / 18+

Drink, draw, and be merry.

This month's model: Sugar Dish of Babes in Boinkland, who has been a cool model before (see above).
A couple of tips: Come on time to get a seat up front. Keep it small so others can crowd in around you. Bring your stuff in a milk crate so you have something to sit on or put your stuff on. (we have lots of seats, but more is helpful)
SUN 6/14

In addition to this discussion, the 2009 Vasyl Stus Freedom to Write Award will be presented to Nurmuhemmet Yasin, whose satirical story, "Wild Pigeon," was considered by Chinese authorities to be critical of their presence in the Xinjiang Uighur Region."
