A bar known for its hip-hop and heavy-metal shows and all-you-can-eat bacon nights might not seem like the most logical place to host a reading. However, the Twin Cities literary scene often eschews expected stuffiness, and knows a thing or two about the value of sharing creative works over a pint (or three). At this installment of Irregular Readings, folks will be invited to get their drink on while listening to 10- to 15-minute pieces including poetry, fiction, comedy, and true tales from the mega-talented Matt Rassmussen, Brian Beatty, Courtney Algeo, and John Jodzio. Tigger Lunney and Chris Besinger will host. 21+. (Photo by katerha)
