I stopped by Literati yesterday and Hillary, the owner, let me in on a great secret: the place is dead during home football games. Apparently the same is true for ABC as well. On top of that, there is even on street parking available. Or so they say. So if you're not watching the game today, why not check out Literati and/or stop for a pint at ABC? Also, this football Saturday, there is a special event at Literati: Newbery Medal winning author of Shiloh, Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, will be there at 4:00.
