The Pen & Pencil Pipe Club will meet Wednesday, June 15 at 6:30 p.m.
While the club is open to all during this event, the kitchen will be very busy early in the evening, and of course the special nature of the gathering should be noted — this is one P&P event that is most certainly not non-smoking.

Following the success of last fall’s Pen & Pencil meet-and-greet party with new City Council members and their staffs, we invite all of City Council back for another off the record session with the city’s journalists.
It will be June 22 at 7 p.m. at the Club. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and a diner menu will be available.
We will host the gathering a week after Council breaks for the summer and after the dust has settled on the city’s budget and a decision on the controversial soda tax.
This is a chance to mingle and get to know the members of our legislative body and their staffs in a chill environment.
