9th Ave: Grand Opening Celebration

Saturday, October 25, 2014 - 11:00am to 11:00pm
This event takes place at our 9th Ave location. 

Well, the paint has dried, the awning is up, and we've filled the shelves (twice over it seems). We're thrilled to be in the Sunset, and we're showing our appreciation with an all-day party on Saturday, October 25!
Here's the tentative line-up. There may well be other surprises, too.

Story time for the kids. We'll start the day reading some new children's books, including the very funny Book With No Pictures by B.J Novak. Plus light snacks for little ones.
The first 50 kids (ten and under) to arrive will receive a voucher (worth up to $10) good for any kid's book in the store, new or used.

At high noon, we're doing our Weird Book Raffle. As the name implies, this is your chance to get your hands on Green Apple's strange, eccentric, outlandish conversation pieces. 

Travel through time with our Books From the Future table. Throughout the day we'll be giving away not-yet-published, advance reader copies of great upcoming books. Impress your friends by reading books unavailable to the rest of society.

Bring out your competitive side with Author Trivia. What did Shakespeare leave his wife in his will? What's Dr. Seuss' real name? What does it all mean anyway?

The Roving Photobooth. Everyone knows about Green Apple's Staff Picks, but we wanna know about your favorite books. We'll be taking Polaroid pictures of customers with their choices, and building a "Community Picks" display. Have your face and literary taste immortalized.

Did we mention that we'll have kegs running throughout the day? What's your favorite drinking game? Mine is the one where you just put the drink in my hand. I always win.
We'll be ending the night with two incredibly talented musical acts. Rachel Toups will be opening with a lovely acoustic set, and local heroes Tino Drima will be playing us out.
