Jesse RULES. #justsayin’

pith:

Last week’s inaugural DISH with Lucy Knisley, Max Messier, Sydney Kramer and Helen Rosner featured food, stories and booze. Hosts Kimberly M. Wetherell and David Gutowski are going to be doing this every month at Housing Works, and I highly recommend you attend. The next one is in June.

I mean, whatever reading you were at the other night was great and all, but did it feature pesto? I didn’t think so. Sydney Kramer showed that garlic what’s what at May’s DISH event.
