Two Cookie Minimum
Best Reading Series at 9pm on a Tuesday
At 7:30pm on a weekday, a lot of lit-minded types aren’t home from their day jobs, or their jobs are on the exact opposite side of town from their favorite reading series. That’s why John Wawrzaszek is a genius for having Two Cookie Minimum start at 9pm. The Hungry Brain is also a genius location for a reading—a dark, cool dive bar with cheap drinks, couches and arcade games. The magic continues with readers—Wawrzaszek harmonizes the zine and lit scenes, booking writers like Mairead Case and James Tadd Adcox, whose work feels at home in both. And yes, there are cookies.
