Smith’s Alternative Bookshop have cottoned on to the fact that books are made of paper and are fragile and flimsy and cannot win a fight against a Kindle which is made of plastic and less flammable. I think that’s the reason they’ve now become a wine bar.
Yes, there is a new place to get a bit boozy! And it’s a well known fact; drinking alcohol surrounded by books makes you smart! …or at least makes you look cultured.
The doors are open for events to happen.
Smith’s posted this on their Facebook Earlier this week:
I am ready for any event you can possibly think of (except book burning – that is OUT) so contact me with any ideas – poetry, comedy, tragic plays, happy plays, singing, playing musical instruments, talking out loud about things of importance, book critiques, homages to cheese or wine, birthday parties, parties for no real reason, zine making, constructive arguing, political discourses and undiscourses, stuff – waiting to hear from you
