In the spirit of a fun co-mingling happy hour, please bring a book you love for a boozy book swap! You know that "tell me about your book" is the best pickup line around so we're making it even easier. Drink some cocktails provided by Hooch, chat around, meet some new literary friends (maybe a hot dude or two), and if there's a connection, swap booksThis event is also open to all aspiring hot dudes who like to read. You never know who might notice you!
