Attack of the Typewriters

Event has passed (Mon Sep 9, 2013 - Mon Nov 4, 2013)
Make-Out Room
6-8 p.m.


Political letter-writing for everyone.
 Not too many people know it, but one letter = 100 votes. Really! And it's easier when you're not alone. Grab a drink and tell the President (or any politician) what you think. You can write about anything you want, and we'll have a sample letter or two in case you're not sure what to write about. No one can stop you, after all: It's your right. We'll help you compose your (short!) letter, if you want, and answer all your questions. We also bring stamps, envelopes, tons of paper, a board to tally how many voters we've repped, a ding-bell, and notebooks full of letters we've written in the past and responses we've gotten.

"Writer, drinker, arts-minded political activist, and bon vivant Hiya Swanhuyser is combining her interests in this neato, monthly, potentially wonderfully absurd thingie. Come to the Makeout Room, grab a drink, and then bang out a letter to any politician you have beef with. "One letter = 100 votes," she says. Cocktails and truth to power, yasss. She'll bring the actual, clickety-clackety typewriters! You bring the drink-fueled rage!" -- Marke B., San Francisco Bay Guardian
