Cupid's Rejects: Readings and Dance Party

We're so hyped to be partnering with our friends at Rise Collaborative to present Cupid's Rejects, an anti-Valentine's Day party with comedy, music, dancing, and more on Saturday, February 15 at Thin Man Brewery on Chandler Street. The evening will include a literary spin on Dear Diary, where Buffalonians get on stage to read awkward journal entries, poems, stories, and letters from their adolescence, as well as a DJ set by DJ Lil Gab. Booze and favorites from Thin Man's menu will be available for sale at the event. Single sweeties and coupled-up cuties alike are welcome!
