Celebrities aren't particularly well-known for their insightful, witty writing. One only has to spend a couple of minutes reading through a Twitter feed to understand that stars aren't practicing proper English while hanging out on the movie set, tour bus, or their post-career trailer park. But that doesn't mean there isn't great fun to be had in snarking on their memoirs, tell-alls, and advice books. The F Plus podcast agrees and plans to go live this weekend at the Blue Nile, enthusiastically reading the worst passages they could find penned by their favorite celebrities (or their ghost writers). Come to this event to hear dating tips from a marriage-starved Jennifer Love Hewitt, be scandalized by the antics of the Saved by the Bell cast according to Dustin Diamond, and get an earful of strong opinions and F-bombs from Ice-T. Other books to be read include fail-grade efforts from Paris Hilton, Fabio, Glenn Beck, and Mr. T. A major bonus: Drinks costing $6 or less are two-for-one from 8 to 10 p.m. It's recommended that you experience this writing in the same manner in which it was written: with a heavy buzz.
