Boozy Book Club @ NSD

Join us for the next meeting our our boozy book club! We read books with cocktails/drinks in them, then we discuss the book while enjoying some cocktails and spirits that are consumed within the pages of the book. Cost per person is typically $10 for the cocktail samples plus tax/tip, and each person brings a snack for sharing.

Upcoming Book Choices:

  • August 2019: Cathedral by Raymond Carver (The short story collection)
  • September 2019: What My Lips Have Kissed: The Loves and Love Poems of Edna St. Vincent Millay by Daniel Mark Epstein
