Alan Black Reads On July 8th, 7pm

City Lights Books and Vesuvio join forces to bring you local writer - and former Vesuvio bartender - Alan Black as he makes his triumphant return to North Beach on Tuesday night, July 8th at 7pm, in celebration of his first book, Kick The Balls: An Offensive Suburban Odyssey, published by Penguin Books.

Kick The Balls is a biting, oftentimes hilarious, account of Alan's misadventures as a youth soccer coach in the East Bay suburbs. Come celebrate the book's release, listen to Alan read a few selections, maybe get your book signed and have a pint or two while you're at it.

We here at Vesuvio would like to offer up our most humblest of apologies to Khalil Shaheed for misspelling his name on our poster for the Jazz in the Alley series.

We're looking forward to the Khalil Shaheed Quartet's night in Jack Kerouac Alley on August 13th, when we'll be able to apologize properly.

Sorry about that Khalil!
