August 4th: The Moth and The Myth

Okay, maybe I'm back on track with the clever headlines. That one's not bad, right? Anyway, I'm pleased and proud to welcome The Moth's Catherine Burns to the Liar stage. Artistic egos being what they are, let me quickly add that I'm equally pleased and proud that those other three fantastic people have agreed to help put one over on you. So please come and listen, laugh, eat, drink and win an unbelievable t-shirt at the venerable Cornelia Street Cafe; where the food goes down easy, but the stories are hard to swallow.

Saturday, August 4th @ 6:00 pm
29 Cornelia Street (bet W 4th & Bleeker)

$12 - includes one drink.
