The Zinester’s Guide to New York City Release Party

Thursday, November 11 , 2010 at 8:00pm

Listen to the Bushwick Book Club performing original songs inspired by the The Zinester’s Guide to New York City. Hit the mini zine fair for our contributors’ zines and self-published comics. Enjoy a breakneck recitation of some of our favorite listings. Several lucky contestants will be invited onstage to compete for fabulous low budget prizes in the ZG2NYC’s live $2 Pyramid Game Show. Food and drink specials available for purchase in the Bookstore Café. Buy the ZG2NYC for everyone on your list and check holiday shopping off your list!

Following on the heels of its best selling, DIY city guide The Zinester’s Guide to Portland, Microcosm Publishing is proud to announce the publication of The Zinester’s Guide to New York City – quite possibly the last wholly analog specimen of its kind. The ZG2NYC is an opinionated, anecdotal, low budget, highly participatory exploration of the greatest city on earth. From Japanese breakfasts, art supplies, used books, and wisteria (free for the eating in Central Park) to punk rope, volunteer opportunities, storefront museums and subway musicians, the Zinester’s Guide to NYC has it all. To hell with iPhone apps! Over fifty New York-based zine and indie comics publishers contributed listings and illustrations to supplement the recommendations of Ayun Halliday, Chief Primatologist of The East Village Inky zine and author of No Touch Monkey! And Other Travel Lessons Learned Too Late.
