At least 2 Wingnuts will be reading from their zines at this event!!!!

Join the organizers of the Richmond Zine Fest (coming to you for the 5th consecutive year in October of 2011) for a night of sharing, laughing, and inspiration.

10pm on Thursday May 12th at Sprout, located at 1 North Morris Street in the Fan.

Sprout is graciously hosting this event, and will be open with beverages and snacks for sale.

We are having people read from their zines, because last year’s Zine Reading Potluck before the Zine fest was so much fun!
The Richmond Zine Fest is excited about the growing Zine Community in RVA.

We are looking for a variety of readers- from poems, to political, to anecdotal or personal, to whatever you have got. We will update this event with a list of confirmed readers over the coming week. Please email the zine fest if you want to read at:

The Pie and Blind Date Auction for the Anarchist Black Cross was a hilarious success last night.People got pied, people fought over pies in bidding wars, people danced silly to the fuck the police soundtrack. It appeared that a good time was had all around.

There was berry pie, french silk pie, punpkin pie, mud pies, shepherd's pie, german chocolate pie, and on and on and on. A good mix of vegan and non-vegan.


























We raised 404.25 for the Anarchist Black Cross. Thanks a bunch to everyone who baked pies, everyone who bought pies, Sprout for hosting, the folks who came from out of town for the event, and all involved for making it such a good time. If you missed out this time, you can always donate to the Anarchist Black Cross at any time, and definitely come to next year’s April Fools Day Pie and Blind Date Auction (yea, we’re going annual with this).

Hope everyone enjoys eating those pies and going on cute dates!

Don’t forget to bring some cash and dance moves tomorrow for this awesome event!

Pie and Blind Date Auction to Benefit RVA Anarchist Black Cross

Tomorrow at 10:00pm – Saturday at 1:00am
1 North Morris St

Do you like pie, and wish that you had someone to eat a pie with?

Well here’s your chance! Come out to Sprout on April 1st to participate in a pie/blind date auction to benefit Anarchist Black Cross. We’ll be auctioning off homemade pies to the highest bidder, and the winner of each bid gets a date with whoever made the pie! Also, for a small donation, anyone will be able to throw a pie at a member of ABC.

All funds will be going towards prisoner support in their times of need.

For more information, or if you’d like to be one of the pie makers for the event, give us a call at 804-303-5449.
