Bloomsday at Ulysses’

ulysses_bloomsday2013Happy Blooomsday!

Our friends at Ulysses’ Folk House always throw a huge celebration on Bloomsday.  Not only because they are named after James Joyce’s epic novel in which Bloomsday takes place, but also because it is their anniversary.

This year’s Bloomsday at Ulysses’ celebrates their 10th anniversary.

Today’s festivities:
Brunch: 12pm to 3pm.
Offering a complimentary glass of burgundy and a chunk of gorgonzola cheese, so you can nosh like Leopold Bloom himself in Chapter 8.

Readings from Ulysses’: 2pm
Celebrated Irish author Colum McCann will be the master of ceremonies for readings from the great book by a pantheon of literary figures.
