Saturday night at American Legion #8 – Capitol Hill, DC journos and a few stray winos gathered to toast the release of Ryan Grim‘s new book, “This Is Your Country on Drugs: The Secret History of Getting High in America.”

The HuffPo reporter and new author inked copies of his book with the help of wife Elizan Garcia while barefooted band, Merle Haggard Haggard rocked Legion 8.

Spotted: Michael Steel, Jared Allen, David Mark, Ken Vogel, Bob Hillman, Anne Marson, Mike Allen, Jennifer Kohl, Leonard Roberge, Dave Jamieson, Mike Debonis, Jason Cherkis, Gail Ross, Howard Yoon, Marissa Newhall, Matt Mackowiak, Rachel Morris, Sarah Courteau and Amos Snead.

Not since the release of Britney Spears‘ “Heart to Heart” has a book signing boasted bare feet and banjos with such klass. Well done, Mr. Grim!
