Kidlit Drink Night: March Edition

Happy March! Even — dare we say it — happy SPRING . . . . almost.  In the same vein as that oh-don’t-you-wish-it-was-just-ten-degrees-warmer weather, have we got a springy Kidlit Drink Night for you!  Check it out:

When: March 21, 6:30 p.m.
Where: The Village Pourhouse at 366 West 46th St., between 8th and 9th Avenues.

FREE open bar from 6:30-7:30!!

Yup.  You got it.  This open bar is sponsored by and will feature free house wine, Bud Light, and well drinks. Given that the snow is gone, the weather is warmer, and your drinks are on the house, you have absolutely no excuse not to come out and chat with your fellow kidlit lovers. Ignore your deadlines* and join us!

* Um, we are not responsible for the consequences here.

Hope to see you there!
