Hello lascivious literates and prurient page turners,
SO much news to share with you!
After a lovely year at The Backstage/Bagdad I have decided to switch up our routine and move downtown
to the Jack London Bar- located at 529 SW 4th Avenue, Portland, OR 97204
in the basement of The Rialto Pool hall. Not only do they have great drinks, cozy seating and an excellent menu- we also get to say we belong to a book club that meets in the basement of a pool hall which, is very in keeping with the vibe of the FROBC.
Below is our reading list for 2012--best get to turning those pages - our first meeting is in just 2 weeks!
