Reading January 12 at 7 pm.

Join us on January 12 at 7 pm to hear three great authors read: Diana Whitney, Kim Addonizio, and Katie Byrum.

Diana Whitney’s first collection of poetry, Wanting It, was released by Harbor Mountain Press in August 2014 and quickly became a Poetry Bestseller at Small Press Distribution. Diana graduated from Dartmouth College and Oxford University, where she was a Rhodes Scholar, and attended the Warren Wilson College MFA Program for Writers. Her essays and poems have appeared in many publications, including The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, Numero Cinq, Dartmouth Alumni Magazine, Puerto del Sol, and the Crab Orchard Review. Her irreverent parenting column, Spilt Milk, was syndicated for years, garnered an avid readership, and ran as a commentary series on VPR. A yoga instructor, Diana lives with her family in Brattleboro, VT, where she blogs for The Huffington Post and runs Core Flow Yoga & Sport.

Kim Addonizio has been called “one of our nation’s most provocative and edgy poets.” Her latest books are Lucifer at the Starlite, a finalist for the Poets Prize and the Northern CA Book Award; and Ordinary Genius: A Guide for the Poet Within, both from W.W. Norton. Her novel-in-verse, Jimmy & Rita, was recently reissued by Stephen F. Austin State University Press ( Kalima Press published her Selected Poems in Arabic. Addonizio’s honors include a Guggenheim Fellowship, two NEA Fellowships, and Pushcart Prizes for both poetry and the essay. Her collection Tell Me was a National Book Award Finalist. Other books include two novels from Simon & Schuster, Little Beauties and My Dreams Out in the Street. Her new story collection, The Palace of Illusions, materialized courtesy of Counterpoint/Soft Skull in September 2014. Addonizio offers private poetry workshops in Oakland, NYC, and online, and often incorporates her love of blues harmonica into her readings.

Katie Byrum is a native Kentuckian who currently lives in Brooklyn, New York, where she co-curates two poetry events: the witchy series COVEN and the Tri-Lengua Reading Series. Her work has been featured in Gulf Coast Magazine, Lumberyard, Big Bell, iO Poetry, Split Lip Magazine, Ghost Town, Pine Hills Review, H_NGM_N, Forklift Ohio, Handsome, Poor Claudia: Phenome, and elsewhere. Her first poetry collection, Burn It Down, is forthcoming in December 2014 from Forklift Books. More information is available at

Reading December 9 at 6:30 pm.

Curated by Catherine Gigante-Brown

Please join us for an intriguing glimpse at the works of three very compelling writers—Beth Bosworth (The Source of Life and Other Stories), Anthony Vigorito (Seeing in 17) and Catherine Gigante-Brown (The El). Each will read excerpts from their most recent works. There will also be a Q&A and a meet and greet with the authors where their books will be sold and signed.

About the Authors

Beth Bosworth has taught at the New School for Social Research, CUNY’s NYC Technical College, and for many years at Saint Ann’s School in Brooklyn, where she is also founding editor of the Saint Ann's Review. Her publications include a debut collection, A Burden of Earth and Other Stories, a novel, Tunneling, and The Source of Life and Other Stories, which was honored with the 2012 Drue Heinz Literature Prize. Her works have appeared in the Kenyon Review, the Seneca Review, the Forward, Guernica, AGNI, and elsewhere.

A lifelong Brooklynite, Anthony Vigorito is a recently-retired New York City schoolteacher. Mentored by Ken Siegelman, Brooklyn’s third Poet Laureate, he currently hosts two monthly poetry readings: Ken Siegelman’s Brooklyn Poetry Outreach at the Park Slope Barnes & Noble as well as Tom Kane’s Boulevard Bards at Boulevard Books in Dyker Heights. Seeing in 17, an innovative collection of art-inspired haiku, is his fourth collection of poetry.

A writer of fiction, nonfiction and poetry, Catherine Gigante-Brown’s works have appeared in a variety of publications including Essence, Time Out New York, the Daily News, Industry and The Italian Journal of Wine and Food. She co-authored the biographies Raw Talent and Whips and Kisses for Prometheus Books. A number of her short stories and essays appear in anthologies.

The First Ever Pacific Standard Cozy Design Contest!

You may be familiar with our traditional blue and gold Pacific Standard cozies. They were a glorious bunch, but after seven years we're finally and tragically run out of them. So we thought for the next inevitable batch of cozies we would open the designing up to you, our faithful bar patrons.

The rules are simple:

--We need a one-color design only. You can specify a background color and a print color, but that's it. (As in, "I want the cozy itself to be blue, but the print on it to be yellow.")
--We'll need the image in a common format, and as high-resolution as possible without being completely silly. We'll let you know if the image you send doesn't work.

The winners of the design contest will receive:

--Grand Prize: 10 cozies of your own design, a $20 gift certificate to Pacific Standard, and a small collection of special bottled beer from the bar vaults to go in your new cozies.
--Second Prizes (as many as are merited): two of the winning cozies, a $10 gift certificate to Pacific Standard, and other prizes (pint glasses, beer, etc.) from our vaults.

The deadline: November 30, 2014.

So start designing, and e-mail us with any questions at pacificstandardbrooklyn --at--

NYC Cider Week event with Ace Cider Tuesday night.

On Tuesday the 28th starting at 7 pm, Pacific Standard will celebrate New York City's Cider Week in our own West Coast way with two excellent ciders from our good friends at Ace in northern California. We'll have their delicious Perry pear/apple blend, as well as a special fall cider, their Pumpkin:

Jason from Ace will be by to pour samples for y'all, and talk cider. AND if you buy one of these ciders, you will get a free Ace pint glass, while supplies last. So come early and celebrate fall with the quintessential fall drink.

The Disagreement Presents: Decay, September 11 at 7 pm.

The Disagreement has become homeless. Our former home is sadly no longer — on July 27, Culturefix closed.

Culturefix was an unexpected place, a place where things happened by chance. In their own words, it was “a bar, gallery and event venue that offer[ed] a different idea of a public space,” and like the best places in this city, both present and past, it never tried to be anything more than it was. It was not “cool” or “hip;” they had no designs on being the hottest place in the city or being the center of a scene. There was in fact no design to Ari and Cole’s establishment. They seemed merely to operate on the principle of filling their bar with things and people they liked and then letting the people they liked do their thing. Friends had art shows there. The Disagreement was born there. They put on one hell of a dinner party. And they used to make bitchin’ tacos.

Speaking of Decay, our city seems to be falling apart. What else could explain all the glass and steel that has leveled what was once an ocean of brick and concrete? The old has become useless, tradition unwarranted. “We’ve entered a new age,” they seem to keep telling us, “so stop trying to hold onto the past.”

But not everything ancient crumbles, just as not everything new lasts. A place like New York City only exists out of this constant collision between what is modern and what was already there. This has always been the case. It’s what made it a place that defined what was interesting to the rest of the world. Or at least until our modern age, that inexorable drive of progress and development that seems to be killing the things we love about this city — that it was a place where things just happened, where interesting people moved from all around the country and all around the world because it was a place where you could make your life your own, where you’d meet like-minded people and those whose disagreed with you alike, and together or alone, interesting things got made, where you used to not need money to be an interesting person.

Right now it seems as though the money is winning, because money only ever needs more money to keep it warm. And money, unfortunately, seems to be the one thing that doesn’t fall apart. A fortune made never dies, it is only plundered, stolen, or inherited, and its corrupting touch lasts much longer than the lives of those who possess it.

This modern age is a crappy one, one built with cheap shit and even cheaper money. This modern age is one built to rot right out of the gate. But luckily, glass was made to be broken; steel to melt.

On September 11, The Disagreement will present Decay, an evening of readings focusing on deterioration both mental and physical, the decline of the body and the soul, the degradation of both cultural and ethical standards. And so begins our itinerant phase.

At Pacific Standard. We’ll start at 7.

Tickets for U.S.-Portugal June 22.

First of all, huzzah! Thank you all for coming today to watch the U.S. beat Ghana 2-1. Now some details about watching the next match.

Because the U.S.-Portugal match on June 22 at 6 pm is going to be such a big event, we're selling tickets in advance for crowd control purposes. This way we can all have a bit of space to stretch out, and won't have to worry about being shoulder-to-shoulder and unable to enjoy the game properly. Your ticket will come with a free beer or well drink, and will cost $8 in order to pay for said drink and the extra staff we'll have on hand to make sure everyone gets good service. You can buy tickets starting immediately here at the bar; just ask your bartender. (The ticket doesn't mean you shouldn't tip your bartender for your drinks on the evening of the game!) You can also buy tickets at the door the day of the game, but we recommend buying them in advance to ensure you'll have space.

A couple clarifications: if you are coming and going earlier on Sunday, and won't be staying for the game, you don't need to worry about a ticket. On the other hand, for those of you who are coming later Sunday night for pub quiz, fear not: after 8 pm, we'll go back to normal, open to everybody at no cost. However, keep in mind that it may take some time for World Cup fans to clear out, so we'll probably be starting quiz later than usual to allow people to settle in. Be patient and we'll make it work.

We may or may not need to regulate admission to other U.S. games, and will keep you updated, but for now it's just the Portugal match. Any questions, just e-mail us. Go U.S.!
