There's lots of other great writers too, I just haven't had the chance to read them yet.

love Galapagos Art Space- I'll be there! FYI, it's definitely just Galapagos Art Space, not "Galapagos Art Space and Bar."

It does have a fully-stocked bar, just not in the name.

Thanks for parsing out the particulars with Galapagos' name. I'm looking forward to the event and seeing the space. I feel silly that I haven't even been there yet!
