Nobody Promised You a Bed


And nobody promised you any hamburgers either. You weren’t promised much of anything, which is why you should be thankful for any crumbs you might get. However, we can promise you a fantastic night of readings next Wednesday, March 2, when The Disagreement presents, “Here’s good news if you have to sleep on the floor …” in the back room of The Hi-Fi Bar. We’ll start around 8.
