A night of fiction, not a fictional night. Food and Drinks provided.
Reading with four other fictionists in a dirty apartment chosen because the tenant was convinced he would finally clean if he hosted an event. He had been living there for months and still hadn't unpacked and the place was littered with empty beer cans and food scraps. He finished clearing out all the garbage moments before the first guest arrived.
We had a budget of 100$ USD that was supposed to be spent on food and beverages, perhaps some wine, beer, cheese and crackers, but it was decided that the money was better spent on cheap beer and Cheez-Its®
There was after party social gathering that turned into a dance party and lasted until four am.
About 70 people showed up. One of the guests and one of the writers started dating that night and got married (later, two years, I believe) and I suppose, in their own fashion, they will live happily ever after.
