You know you don't want to toss candy at socially distanced trick or treaters. You know you can't watch another horror movie where a libidinous co-ed meets their demise by way of a psychos axe. No, you want to beam up to another planet and escape another ordinary earthbound hallows eve. Well, now is your chance, come step onto the Velvet Elk transporter and teleport far far away to a swaggy, retro-futuristic space disco! Featuring far-out space-themed cocktails as only The Velvet Elk can make, the otherworldly sounds of intergalactic disco, spun by your favorite binaural astronaut, DJ Casewag (no way!). MC'd by the time-traveling vaudevillian, Bella Biagio (what! wasnt she hit by a ufo?). A costume contest with prizes that threaten to go supernova (are you kidding?!).

A raffle ticket drawing with a star cluster of prizes that include the following delights:
 

A $25 Velvet Elk gift certificate 

A Velvet Elk t-shirt 
House-made Velvet Bitters 
House-made Atomic Brandied Cherries 
A 2-hour exclusive upstairs reservation for up to 10 guests

Wednesday August 14th - 7 to 9 p.m. in our upstairs lounge.

 

If you've attended Assembly Literary Open Mic you should be familiar with the writing prompt at the end of the evening. GASOLINE takes this concept further with a series of writing prompts in the style of a guided meditation provided by Kate Berwanger of Surreal Storytelling by Strange Women fame. 

All skill levels are welcome to participate, but this salon is reserved for women, non-binary, and queer writers. The Velvet Elk venue is 21+ and this private session takes place in our upstairs lounge, a cozy den-like setting.

At the end of your writing journey, you will have the opportunity to read your piece à la Assembly Open Mic. There is no pressure to share your work.

Limited slots available, purchase tickets HERE
