Drinks & Vets on 4th Anniv. of the War

March 19th, 2007 by Larry Smith

46325643_6c9a1bcd35.jpgShooting War’s Anthony Lappé hosts his monthly political variety show, “The War Room,” on Tuesday, March 20 at Mo Pitkin’s—and this time it’s a benefit for NYC’s chapter of the Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW), the nation’s leading antiwar Iraq veterans organization. Come hang with Lappé and comedian Seth Herzog (Vh1) for a night of humor and pathos some four years after we invaded Iraq—and hear what it’s like to be over there from vets. There’s a free reception and book signing with Nina Berman (Purple Hearts: Back from Iraq) and Lori Grinker (Afterwar: Veterans from a World in Conflict) at 8pm, followed by the show at 9. Lappé knows how to throw a party, it’s for a good cause on an important day, and Mo Pitkins is number one.
