April 17: The Undead Edition

OK, first off: We know. Between Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, The Walking Dead, the ease of the Thriller dance and the general cheapness of blue/gray makeup ... zombies are puh-layed out. Just shoot the craze dead already. No, not there. In the head. The head, goddammit! Shit. Out of bullets. No! Stay back! Keep your filthy teeth off meeeaaAAAAAGH THE PAIN gurgle choke.

Where were we? Ah yes, an apology. Sure, the theme for Speakeasy in April is Zombies. How can we resist? I mean, Easter. Come on. The eggs are pretty and the candy's dandy but let's not forget to teach our kids the true reason for the season: That on a day long ago in the general vicinity of April, a man got whupped to death and arose from the grave to cause a widespread plague of flesh-eating and blood-drinking. So come on out to Will's Pub on April 17 at 9 p.m. for a night of spoken word dedicated to shambling, groaning and grotesque gluttony. Belly on up to the bar, get embalmed and open your mind - they're hungry.
