A Heady Cocktail of Books and Booze
The New York Times got it right. The 2013 “book-and-booze cocktail” was our headiest yet. The party started o Friday night at a special Way Behind the Music benefit sponsored by Litquake and WFMU, with funny folks like Julie Klausner and Tom Scharpling recounting the graphic exploits of Sammy Hagar, Tori Amos, and other over-sharing musicians.
Come Saturday night, Crawlers buzzed throughout the East Village, having unspeakable fun at Literary Taboo, getting spirited away with ghost stories at the Merchant’s House Museum, and tippling through literary history with Hendrick’s Gin.

To anyone and everyone who would rather jam to Virginia Woolf than a woofer. Who still fancies Hemingway the all-time bar-brawl champ or has, at some point, uttered the word “transcendental” in a social setting. To anyone who has ever snuck a flask into the library. This is your night.

The Lit Crawl is a madcap concept created by San Francisco’s literary festival, Litquake, back in 2006. It’s a bar crawl, with literature! The inaugural Lit Crawl NYC took place in September 2008 and was wildly popular, spurring its lit-loving, NY-loving crawlers to make it an annual event, growing, in true Lit Crawl tradition, with every year.
