Buffalo-based literary collectives Peach Mag and Foundlings Press have come together to produce a very interesting evening on the town, filled with a variety of poets, mid-century modern furniture, comedy, music, and art. Yes, all of these elements will be rolled in to one sensational reading and winter masquerade at MiMO Decor on Hertel Avenue.
There are numerous unique attributes that are being fashioned together to create a dynamic event, hosted at an exceptional neighborhood setting. The event will include a photo station, a midwinter mixtape curated by Peach Mag’s Bre Kiblin, visiting and local entertainers, cocktail attire (masks encouraged), and an afterparty at Mès Que where guests can sample a Fuzz Buzz cocktail (crafted specifically for the affair). The event – Hidden Faces Reading and Masquerade – is free and open to the public. Beer and wine will be provided.
