Description:

Busboys and Poets Presents: NOIR AT THE BAR...

Host Josh Pachter, co-editor and translator of Amsterdam Noir, leads you on an odyssey into the mysterious world of dark fiction known as NOIR. Each quarter, featured local authors will read passages from their Noir works, and the first 50 guests are entered into a prize raffle at the end of the night. So step right up, everyone's a winner...

Join us for drinks and midnight jaunts through the foggy streets and back alleys of crime, hardboiled, and mystery writing, right here in Shirlington. February's theme is HEARTS AND DAGGERS...Love! Jealousy! Plots of revenge, and much more! 

Exclusively for attendees of Noir at the Bar, enjoy our Jilted Lover cocktail for only $10. Sweet, fleeting, and a little bitter...just like love!
