I'm a week late in posting this, as usual, but Twilight Tales, which was started by Tina Jens, was a weekly reading series that went on for over fifteen years and won awards and really kept a lot of writers hanging in there with their open mic nights.
The Red Lion at that spot right now is a sports bar, so don't go there. I miss the place, and I miss the coolest bartender around, Joe Heinen. But it all started in 1993. On the day Bill Bixby died of prostate cancer.
