If you're a cool cat, you're probably pretty hyped about "BongoTini's triumphant return to Larryville" on Thursday for an evening of "secret agent jazz, exotica, Latin, space age pop, beatnik and hipster music and much more!" Show starts at 7:00 pm Thursday upstairs at Frank's (it was moved from the Taproom, which is currently closed for "unforeseen emergency repairs," so please keep the Tap in your thoughts this week!).

Not everyone realizes that one of America's coolest poets has recently moved to LFK. Her collection Motherland Fatherland Homelandsexuals hit the shelves yesterday. She's got a huge spread--sounds dirty!--in the New York Times Magazine (read it here) and the collection is getting some sweet love from NPR: "a collection of wildly original poems: obscene, sharp, and funny, with titles like 'Bedbugs Conspire to Keep Me from Greatness' and 'Last of the Late Great Gorilla-Suit Actors.'" (read the full NPR piece here and make sure to read her very moving and, yes, sort of funny instant-classic poem "Rape Joke" here if you have not yet read it: it's been making the rounds for some time). Follow Lockwood's delightfully bizarre and often filthy Twitter account here and please convince her to spend an evening with PBR Book Club soon!
And our beer of the week (which can be found at Ted's Taphouse) is called The Kimmie, the Yink, and the Holy Gose Ale. Yes, it's a real thing. We had to do a fair amount of research to even figure out what it all means. It's from California's Anderson Valley Brewing Company. Go drink it.
