Non-fiction drinks: a weekly mom ‘n pop-up shop

It is almost 4 o’clock on Friday, which means in two hours our weekly pre-weekend bar opens. Last week we discovered the possibilities of outside projections, so let’s see what happens this week.

Anyone up for a drink, new Viral Radio music and a non-standard viewing of a torrented newspaper documentary is welcome.

We look forward to seeing you.
