Feel more than free to come dressed as any personal or public demon you may wish, so as to better your haiku display, or just better your evening. Juggalo, train kid, delinquent, academic, street prophet, Buddha reincarnate, wine-friendly event. For more information, scope the link – or contact Raven Doctorlounge Mack who is always ready and willing to answer all questions, even ones he has no clue about how to understand. Especially those, in fact.
