New Times is back with the December installment of Bar Flies, our monthly reading series at Valley Bar. This time we'll honor our long(ish) standing tradition of celebrating the holidays with the theme "Eating Christmas" — tales of the winter holidays, and food.
The lineup: Tricia Parker, Robrt Pela, Amy Silverman, Amy Young, and Joy Young. Amy Silverman is curating and music will be provided by Kevin Vaughn-Brubaker. The reading will take place on Thursday, December 17, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $5, and a portion of proceeds will go to St. Mary's Food Bank.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
