Slake threw a big New Orleans-themed Lundi Gras party at The Bootleg theater last night. A good time had by all. Slake co-founder Joe Donnelly told us it was the lit mag’s best event yet, and we would be hard-pressed to disagree. Well over 100 people showed for an evening of art, essays, film and music–if not literally than spiritually–from the Big Easy.
It was dark in there, so our photographs came out a little blurry. (The photo up top comes courtesy of Slake photographer Alex Bacon.) But that isn’t going to stop us from some shamelessly posting this photo of yours truly reading from his story “Mushrooms to Mecca” last night.
Sadly, the rest of our shots didn’t turn out so well. We’ll do better next time.
