Slake Throws A Damn Good Party

In celebration of their premiere issue, the Slake literary journal threw a party at Track 16 on Thursday night, complete with readings, music, an art show, a taco truck, and most importantly – PIE. Beautiful women served up generous slices of apple pie in a vintage 1929 dining car to the literary hordes, which included Jerry Stahl, Luke Davies, John Powers, Iris Berry, John Albert, Joe Donnelly, Deborah Stoll, and Jonathan Gold.

The gallery show of art from Slake will be on display at Track 16 through the end of the week. Track 16 Gallery, 2525 Michigan Ave. Bldg C-1, Santa Monica, 310-264-4678. We recommend taking a peek.
