Every issue of hot new lit magazine Hoarse is based on a different theme; past issues include “Houdini” and “Field Day.” And Hoarse celebrates each new issue with a fun, usually boozy release party on the same theme. (The “Houdini” party featured a stage magician; “Field Day” involved outdoor games.) The fifth issue includes work by some of Seattle’s up-and-comingest young writers on the theme “Professor,” and the party will take place in the cozy back room of the College Inn Pub. Expect tweed, chalk dust, stiff drinks, and sexy academics. (College Inn Pub, 4000 University Way NE, 547-1525, 7 pm, free, 21+)
