Drink a pint for Edgar Allan Poe tonight

Gregg Wilhelm at the CityLit Project reminds me -- and you -- that Baltimore's Creative Alliance is hosting "Pints for Poe," a fund-raiser for the Poe House tonight. As we've noted, the city has threatened to cut off funding for the west Baltimore house where Poe lived as a youth. Fund-raisers have popped up in Baltimore, Washington and other cities, as folks try to keep Poe's former house from befalling the fate of the H.L. Mencken House, which closed to the public several years ago.

Here's how Creative Aliance describes tonight's event: With a small donation, supporters of the Poe House will receive a Raven or Poe pint glass and ticket for a free Raven, and you know, the taste is poetic. There will be a Poe actor or two to add to the festivitiesGregg assures me that with a small donation tonight, supporters of the Poe House will receive a Raven or Poe pint glass. There will be Poe actors to add to the festivities and conversations with Mark Supik, the renown maker of fine tap handles who created the Edgar A. Poe/Raven tap handle.

The Creative Alliance is located at 3134 Eastern Avenue in Highlandtown -- near Matthew's, my favorite pizza parlor.

L'chaim, Edgar!
