OK, so it’s two days, two chances to win! April 27-28, the Philly Typewriter Weekend, a trip into Typerspace, you might say.
Friday — beer + typewriters X Joe Sixpack = Drinking n Typing, an evening at the nation’s oldest Press Club, the Pen & Pencil in downtown Philly, 7-10 pm. $15 ($10 with working manual typewriter) includes includes a beer tasting and snacks with Joe Sixpack. We will pair craft beers from the US, Italy and Germany with typewriters from the same countries, then scientifically examine our prose styles to see if they change with various combinations of beers and typewriter! It’s my belief that this is a first, which may open an entire new field of recreational research.

Saturday — the Spring Type-IN, and first meeting of the Philadelphia Typewriter Congress, where we’ll consider plans for a Large Fall Typing Event (LFTE)
At Fergie’s, 1214 Sansom Street, a lovely traditional pub where, BTW, youngsters like Mr. Cidoni are welcome. That’s Sat., 2-5pm, FREE, with working manual typewriter or stamped envelope. This event will hew to the standard International Type-IN Format, which includes a Speed Typing Competition with measly prizes, a Letter Writing Session and a Typewriter Swap.
