"Man Up!" It's the first official Literary Saloon of the New Year!

It's time to oil up, strap on your jock and climb into the ring, people. January's Saloon offers up a torrent of literary testosterone. In this corner, Edmonton's homegrown literary Heavyweight Todd Babiak, author of Toby: A Man. And in this corner, Vance "Mr. Beefy Goodness" Nevada, professional wrestler and author of "Wrestling in the Canadian West". For the food portion of our evening: learn how to slap together a man-worthy sandwich with Nate Box of Edmonton's Elm Cafe.

Are you man enough?!

Doors at 7, show at 8
$5 ~ cash bar and cafe

The Artery is located at:
