Our little corner saw some excitement this morning as the county unveiled a new historic marker identifying the only intersection in the country where all four corners hold pre-revolutionary buildings. (We are one of them!) Of course we’re fueling the crowds with coffee, bagels, beer, and books - including plenty of history about our amazing & quirky city. Come on over! (Some photos from fall, some from today, video courtesy of @esterwine. ) #kingstonny #historicfourcorners #uptownkingston #hudsonvalley #catskills #readsiprepeat

It’s our 1,000th post, so we figured we’d hit you with the classic triple threat of great new books, a lovingly-made coffee, and a great local beer. These are our favorite things, and we love sharing them with you. We encourage you to scroll back over the past three years of posts and take a look at our strange, wonderful journey. Or, just swing by the shop today and say hi in person! #bookstorebar #coffeeandbooks #beerandbooks #bookstagram #windowbar #greatview #ReadSipRepeat #kingstonny

TONIGHT! Kingston resident and friend of the shop, @chapmanchapman , celebrates the release of his debut novel Riots I Have Known. Esquire calls it a “gritty, bracing debut,” and Jonathan Lethem places it “on the short list of truly great American prison novels.” It’s a short book that packs a hilarious punch, and we couldn’t be prouder to be its launchpad! Join us at 7:00 for a reading and talk with Ryan, followed by cake and general reverie. Free and open to the public, and the bar will be open throughout 📖 🚀 🎂 🍻! #booklaunch #localauthor #riotsihaveknown #readlocal #ReadSipRepeat #kingstonny

TUESDAY! Our favorite Nerd Jeopardy host and local literary celeb, Ryan Chapman, wrote a book! Join us as we celebrate the launch of the highly acclaimed Riots I Have Known. The Washington Post called @chapmanchapman ’s book "criminally funny," and Publishers Weekly said it's "supremely mischievous and sublimely written." (And yes that’s a blurb from Jonathan Letham on the cover!) There will be a brief reading, some Q&A, time for book sales and signings, and lots of revelry. Tuesday, May 21, 7 pm. #riotsihaveknown #ryanchapman #localauthor #booklaunch #kingstonny #hudsonvalley #hudsonvalleyauthor #booksandbeer
