All right, get ready for the next IMBIBE – deets below
IMBIBE at the Marina Branch Library, June 17th, 7-10 PM
Eat, drink and be literary at a library cocktail party
San Francisco, CA— On June 17th, Friends of the San Francisco Public Library present IMBIBE—an after-hours library cocktail party for Friends members.
Throw on that spare spacesuit you have hidden in the back of your closet and join us as we celebrate the launch of this year’s One City One Book—Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void by acclaimed local author Mary Roach, who will be on hand to chat and stargaze with partygoers.
Guests can enjoy complimentary drinks and snacks in the Marina Branch stacks, talk at full volume and generally ignore library taboos—moon walking is encouraged. Party perks include a space-themed photo booth and giveaways of Packing for Mars. The San Francisco Amateur Astronomers will have a telescope or two set up outside, so fingers crossed for clear skies!
Open Bar provided by Anchor Steam Brewing, Reyka Vodka, Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur and Coit Liquor.
IMBIBE at the Marina Branch Library promises to be a party of astronomic proportions.
Follow us into the void and IMBIBE on June 17th!
IMBIBE is a quarterly event series where Friends Members are invited to mix and mingle amongst the stacks with special literary guests, all while enjoying complimentary food and drink in some of the most beautiful, newly-renovated branches in the San Francisco Public Library system.
