This event is obviously Halloween themed—but the idea came from Roberts’ most recent book, Final Girl Mythos, which is a collections of poems inspired by classic slasher movies. Roberts watched all the source movies over the summer—including watching films like Halloween and Friday the 13 th for the first time—and got really into the spooky spirit. Halloween is always with us! That is why the event is titled Spooky Poems 365.
Tattooed Mom will be serving tasty eats and ice cold drinks all evening.
Upstairs dining, bar access, and event entry is 21+ w/ valid ID.
