Every January when things slow down a bit we try to put on one cool event to help make the winter in Cleveland more tolerable.
This time we’ve paired up with Working Class Brewery, located right next to the shop, for a night of FREE comics, good company and craft beer!
On Friday January 25th from 5 pm to 9 pm, the entire CNJ’s crew will be guest bartenders at Working Class Brewery!
Yes everyone, Ben, Josh, Jason, both John’s, Kevin and even Jim. (Not pictured because he’s aloof.)
Starting at 5:30 we’ll be handing out three free Marvel True Believers comics, great reprints of classic Marvel material.
Every half hour after that we’ll give away three different books, so if you last the whole stretch that’s 24 books.
So books at 5:30, 6:00, 6:30, 7:00, 7:30, 8:00, 8:30 and 9:00.
What’s more, all of these comics have been hand-picked by the staff, and we’ll also have that staff member give a quick story about the significance of the book, both to them and in general.
We were going to have a schedule about who was going to speak and when but we just figured whoever’s ready will dive in. Looking at the staff picks, they are very heavy on Marvel Netflix characters. If you’re looking for direction on what to read after watching the shows then this event is for you.
In addition to staff members rotating out behind the bar, we’ll also be running a table selling all the different True Believers books for only $1.00 each. There’s just shy of a hundred, so if you want more personal recommendations, go to the table and talk to whoever’s there for more help.
Our goal is to introduce their customers to comics and ours to craft beer.
Working Class does not have a kitchen, but BBQ 216 will be setting up a pop up space with food for sale that we hear includes Pork Shoulder and Tacos!
Looks to be a fun night! Stop by to just say hi or be in it to win it all night long, one way or another we’ll keep the taps running for ya!
