Tonight, I'm so pleased to be joining the Fishtown Beer Runners and their post-run Toast To The Professor at The Druid's Keep, which is featured in my Beer Lover's Mid-Atlantic. I think the Druid's Keep has been a Philly treasure for quite some time, and a somewhat well-guarded treasure, and am so happy to be doing an event there. This FBR/Book event joins the Boots, Brews, & BBQ event that I'm part of on April 30 in Wayne, NJ and the Meet The Author at Books-A-Million in the Exton Square Mall on June 14.
