Books, booze & brunch: An Empty Bottle book club

By Andrew Hertzberg

Well, these are just a few of my favorite things. As if the Empty Bottle wasn’t a great enough venue on their own, they’re now starting their very own book club. The first selection is The Rum Diary by Hunter S. Thompson, his second novel detailing the events of over-indulgent journalists hanging out in Puerto Rico. Apparently it’s been given the Johnny Depp treatment recently, but I think the agenda is to stick with the original work. It’s free to participate, open to everybody who’s interested (spread the word!) and there’ll be some grub from Bite Café next door. So bring your book, a friend, an appetite and an idea for the next month’s book. The inaugural meeting goes down Sunday, November 13th from 1 to 4 p.m.

If you feel like sticking around, there’ll be some experimental tunes from Fortieth Day + Noise Crush, Lori Felker, and the Southbridge Slow Electronics DJs (7 p.m., $3). Finally, at 10 p.m., they'll continue the Everyone’s a DJ series with DJ Larissa. Now that is a Sunday Funday.
