In celebration of our first year on the Internet, The Black Table cordially invites all of our readers, contributors, supporters and friends to a party this coming Friday. (Yes, this means you.) Please stop by and say hello, so we can thank you for preventing us from being a tree that fell, unseen and unheard, in these vast electronic woods. Without your letters and comments and traffic to sustain our meager egos, we would have thrown ourselves into the dustbin months and months ago, when the work began to eat into the time we usually spend drinking. In conclusion, please, please, please, please come to our party! Please. Here are the details:
Friday, January 9, 2004, from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m.
Pioneer Bar at 218 Bowery, between Spring &
