I just wanted to put out a quick reminder that Getting Booked: The Second Chapter of our baseball book club is scheduled for Monday, March 7th at 7:00 PM at Opera Bob’s Public House.
For the uninitiated, Getting Booked is an excuse for baseball fans from around Toronto to put off our social anxieties for one night and meet up under the guise of intelligent discussion about books to drink beer and talk about baseball.
Last month’s get together for Moneyball was wildly successful, both in terms of attendance and participation, and so I expect nothing less from our second engagement. Adding to the expectation is this month’s book: Dirk Hayhurst’s The Bullpen Gospels. And if all that isn’t enough for you, Opera Bob’s will be preparing some delicious snacks and as always reasonably priced, locally brewed beer will be available.
If you haven’t had a chance to pick up your copy of this month’s book or you haven’t finished reading it yet, don’t worry. There are several copies available at book stores around the city and it’s a great, easy read that shouldn’t take much time out of your weekend.
Who: You, me and everyone we know.
What: Getting Booked: The Getting Blanked Baseball Book Club Chapter Two.
Why: Because there’s too much hockey on television, and baseball lends itself more than any other sport to talking about it.
When: Monday, March 7th, 2011 at 7:00 PM EST.
Where: Opera Bob’s Public House, 1112 Dundas Street West (near the corner of Dundas and Ossington).
