Me & Juan Down At The Brewery

Several people have asked me what my Sun night gig is all about, so here it is:

"Brewing Peace" is Michigan Peaceworks' annual fundraising dinner and silent auction with great food, entertainment, and camaraderie!

Featuring conversation with Juan Cole, comedy by Dennis Perrin, and music by The Hummingbirds.

Sunday August 28th, 5-8 pm
Arbor Brewing Company, 116 E. Washington

Requested donation: $30/person; $50/family.
Reservations: email or call 734-761-5922. Space is limited and is starting to fill up.


*Juan Cole is author of the weblog Informed Comment, which covers the U.S.-led occupation of Iraq and other developments in the Middle East. He is also a professor of Middle Eastern and South Asian history at the University of Michigan and author of "Sacred Space and Holy War" (IB Tauris).

*Dennis Perrin is a former writer for Bill Maher ("Politically Incorrect") who now confines his ranting to his blog, Red State Son. He is also a regular contributor to the Ann Arbor Observer.
