Update #7

Come Have $3 Drinks and Harass the Bushwick News Crew!

Comment

Join us at Broomies bar at 921 Broadway this Friday the 24th from 6-10pm for $3 and $4 drink specials -- DJ Ghostdad will be spinning.

If you have any lingering questions about our Kickstarter campaign that you want to ask real people in real life, come put us on the spot! We'll have a Bushwick News table and possibly even Hello My Name Is tags if they still make such a thing, and it's always fun to meet new neighbors under the influence of alcohol.
