Tonight the Deskset, a group of renegade librarians and book-junkies, is throwing a dance party at Enid’s to benefit Books Through Bars.

Shots of librarian fire water will be served:

• NYPL: Champagne, Grenadine, Whiskey
• BPL: Vodka with a dash of Lemonade
• Queens Library: Lime Juice, Tequila, Triple Sec

And from 10:30 til Midnight, $1 from every shot will be donated to the New York City Public Libraries!

Also, if you bring a new or “gently used” paperback dictionary you’ll get a drink on the house – this also goes for a complete book of postal stamps.


But the best part of the evening will be the Fancy Pants Raffle. Straight from the website:

Prizes include gift certificates to Shoe Mart, Mini-mini-mart, Huckleberry Bar, Great Jones Cafe, Mother’s, Daddy’s, Diamond Bar, Pete’s Candy Store, Saint Mark’s Book Store, WORD book store, Permanent Records, the Bee Hive salon, tickets to a reading at Symphony Space, 4 tickets to a literary pub crawl, a special bookworm ring by Camille Hempel, a private Pilates class at Flesh and Bone, an individual membership to MOMA, tickets to the Frick, tickets to the Morgan and more! Proceeds will benefit Books Through Bars.
• 1 ticket for $2
• 5 tickets for $5
• 15 tickets for $10
Raffle proceeds go to support Books Through Bars.
The raffle winners will be drawn by special guest, Cadillac French the following day, June 6th at 4pm at Huckleberry. Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend.

I know I’m not the only one who has had one or two secret librarian crushes in their time…
