Saeed Jones, Megan Boyle, and Thom Donovan will make sparks fly from the PA on Wednesday, January 4 in the first Blue Letter reading of the year of the Mayan Apocalypse. Come to Sal’s Pizzeria & Mama Maria’s Restaurant, 305 Court Street, Brooklyn, NY 11231. Sal’s is in Carroll Gardens and is close to the Carroll Street F/G Station. Here is a map. It will get underway at 8 PM and is FREE and open to the public. There’s no slice pizza in the back room restaurant, but we encourage you to try a personal pie–$5 of pure deliciousness, and of course flag down a friendly waiter to sample the full bar and menu.
