The very last reading party (until September) is tomorrow! We take a summer hiatus—when it's finally nice enough to just read outside. As always, there will be special guests at tomorrow's reading party, and as always the special guests will not do anything different from what you will do: They'll just sit there and quietly read to themselves whatever they feel like reading while waiters bring them things and William Bielawski plays a harp. Amanda Manitach is an artist and a 2012 finalist for a Stranger Genius Award; she's also the curator of Hedreen Gallery. Kelly O is the staff pornographer of The Stranger, the Drunk of the Week columnist, and an amazing storyteller.

As for the drink special: Time for something new, don't you think? Tomorrow night's drink special will be a $5 Kentucky Mule—bourbon, fresh lime, and ginger beer. Light. Refreshing. Verge-of-summer-y.

Fireside Room at the Sorrento Hotel, 6 pm to 9 pm, live music from 6 pm to 8 pm, all ages, free. If you have never heard of the reading party before, start here.
