From Tea Party magazine Editor-in-Chief Esther Lee:
Dear Tea Party Friends,
We’re proud to announce that the TRANS ISSUE #17 will be available any minute now! To celebrate, we want to invite you to join us for a night of ART, FOOD, AND MUSIC at Berkeley’s LA PENA CULTURAL CENTER. Meet Tea Party friends, artists, and writers while enjoying food provided by Cafe Valparaiso and other local businesses [cash bar available]. Music will be provided by Lamya Amir el-Chidiac (aka DJ Chic Sheik).
Be there for our RAFFLE DRAWING when we’ll give away prizes, such as a 7-entry pass to Osento Bathhouse, tickets to the Fresh Meat Festival of Transgender and Queer Performance, pizza + tickets for four to the Parkway Theater, and a $50 gift certificate to the Global Exchange Fair Trade store!
BRING YOUR FRIENDS, MINGLE, AND EAT and, while you’re at it, help celebrate and support a great nonprofit arts magazine. And who said you couldn’t multi-task?
P.S. Suggested donation: $10 which includes a raffle ticket (though no Tea Party fan will be turned away for lack of funds). Your donation helps us meet printing costs and continue to offer payments to the magazine’s contributors.

From the top of the steps, turn right to the corner of Tremont and Prince streets. Head left on Prince for one block to Shattuck. La Peña is located on the opposite side of Shattuck Avenue (next to Starry Plough).
