Good Lord it's awful out there. Thank God the silent-reading party at the Sorrento is happening Wednesday. Roaring fireplace? Check. Five-dollar Manhattans? Check. Special guests? Hell yes: Stranger music editor Emily Nokes and comrade-in-arms Bree McKenna. Plus, everyone's favorite reading party musician, Will Bielawski on harp!

More about the reading party is here. As usual, it's 6 pm to 9 pm, free, and all ages.
