to celebrate the release of its Pocket Field Guide for Warm Weather
2008, and to get out some summer-heat aggression.
To celebrate the release of its gorgeous and blue Pocket Field Guide for Warm Weather 2008, and to get out some summer-heat aggression, the editors at The Duck & Herring Co, in partnership with Eyedrum, are throwing a car smashing. What is a car smashing, you ask? You know: one of those carnival-like attractions where you pay a tiny bit of money for the right to smash a car with sledgehammer. This is the perfect (and perfectly legal) way to let out hot and sweaty anger over: 1) the person who recently dumped you, 2) the dump-truck driver that cut you off in traffic, 3) your boss's stupid haircut .... and many, many other scenarios, real or imagined.
So come on out, BYOB (bring your own bat, though we will have a sledgehammer on hand), and start smashing! Also, there might be a reading from our Pocket Field Guide, there might be a music sing-along, and you might want to purchase a Pocket Field Guide when it's all said and done.
There will also be a used book sale to benefit Eyedrum.
Bring some books to donate! And bring money to buy some!

WHEN: August 1, 2008, 7 p.m.
