Mixing alcohol with your feelings about Trump may not be ate best idea (remember what happened to this guy?), but this week some local watering holes are inviting you to do just that, by handing out stamped postcards addressed to the country’s most dependable smdh trigger. It’s all in conjunction with The Ides of Trump, a letter-writing campaign based on the assumption that our president reads. “Just as the Romans did for Julius Caesar, you and I will now do for Donald J. Trump — only with postcards,” says the Facebook invite. Okay, it’s doubtful this day will end with Trump saying, “Et tu, Bannon?”, but whatever. Here’s where to post up.
The Thirsty Scholar
March 13, 6pm to 8pm, 155 2nd Avenue, East Village.
Forget the blizzard, people, and fight the lizard people! If you’re not running for cover tonight, you can head over to The Thirsty Scholar and help blanket Trump in postcards. (And yes, that might be the first time someone has used Trump and Scholar in the same sentence.) The organizer has “a few extra to share,” but you’re encouraged to bring your own. Why not buy some of the “Nevertheless She Persisted” postcards now available at Strand Book Store, which has done up its whole front window to match.
March 15, 5:30pm to 8:30pm, 77 East 4th St., East Village.
This East Village gift shop’s previous writing party yielded hundreds of postcards, as you can see in the photo up top. This time around they’re not only providing postcards and refreshments, but also donating 20 percent of sales to the ACLU. So go on, buy a Saint Hillary candle.
March 15, 4pm to 10pm, 272 Meserole St., Bushwick.
Not only does this Bushwick beer garden have 100 of the above stamped postcards to give out, but beers are just $2. They’re promising mulled wine, hot toddies, and “a bunch of snow to play with in the backyard.” See, global warming is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese!
March 16, 6pm to 9pm, 169 Avenue A, East Village.
This East Village bar has delayed its party due to the snow, and also because Trump “probably doesn’t know the date on any given day, anyway.” Feel free to express similar sentiments on the stamped cards that’ll be provided by neighborhood locals.
