The Budapest Bardroom Chronicles the Guidebook on February 11
January 26, 2010
To honor that literary format that has sustained so many Bardroom regulars, Budapest’s semi-regular of evening of live literature and music will feature a reading by Nicholas Parsons from his Worth the Detour: A History of the Guidebook. He is also the author of the Blue Guide Austria and Hungary: a Cultural and Historical Guide, and Vienna: A Cultural and Literary History. In addition, the Bardroom will host the jazz trio Maggie és a Muzsikások.
As usual, the event will be at Treehugger Dan’s Bookstore, Café & Lounge. Guests will also have a chance to win unique, local treasures when hosts Jeff Taylor and Kálman Farago test the audience’s knowledge on a range of obscure travel-related topics. All potential bards should be prepared to participate in the poetry writing contest, which will feature a touristic theme. The night’s best poem (determined by audience reaction) will earn a valuable prize. Furthermore, aspiring writers can claim spots for open mic reading.

Venue: Treehugger Dan’s Bookstore, Cafe & Lounge/Discover Hungary
