James Yeh, the hungry genius behind Gigantic, put these two ideas together. I don’t know why this doesn’t happen more often. Gigantic will be sponsoring one Brooklyn leg of this weekend’s nationwide Indie Lit Roadshow (check that link for all of the other cool stuff happening). I’ll be reading along with John Haskell and Anelise Chen, and cheap tacos will be served (beside cheap drinks). Black bean tacos from Bouwerie (James vouches for them). It happens Friday – taco start at 6, words at 7:30. Info after the jump:
496 Broadway (at Union Ave.)
G to Broadway
or J, M to Hewes
or L to Lorimer (then 8 min walk south on Union)
RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
