Tonight at 7pm ET, my buddy Eryk Pruitt is hosting a Noir at the Bar featuring S.A. Cosby, Christ Faust, Russell Johnson, Johnny Shaw, and Katy Munger. It will be streamable on both YouTube and Facebook. What Eryk isn’t pushing is that this is a fundraiser of sorts for Yonder, which due to COVID-19 hasn’t served a drink since March. Anywho, if you missed buying Eryk a drink at Bouchercon, swing on buy tonight, be entertained, and leave a little something in the tip jar.
