The Vegas Valley Book Festival has arrived!

Here is another fun event to celebrate Las Vegas' great cultural scene. The 2010 Las Vegas Valley Book Festival has arrived which means lots of parties and lots of books to read! As someone who prides himself for NOT having a television, I am an avid reader who constantly promotes reading as an alternative to the tube. So if you love books and love a good cocktail or two come Downtown and celebrate the written word.

Shake & Stir
A Sipping Experience of Vintage Cocktails

Please join us for a fundraiser and a toast to the Vegas Valley Book Festival, celebrating the art and taste of the vintage cocktail, from classic recipes drawn from a  rare  collection of cocktail books - with proceeds to support the book festival’s Senior Reading Project.
