Rebel girl, rebel girl: you are the queen of my world! That’s why the staff of LYR is hosting a pre-Forth of July event in celebration of revolutionary American women! Foremothers Bingo will be hosted on Friday, July 3rd from 7-9pm at Old Soul Brewing in Fort Myers, Florida. If you’re looking for events in Fort Myers this holiday weekend, you can be sure there’s nothing else like this event in town.

Old Soul Brewing is one of Fort Myers best kept secrets. True locals love the homegrown feel of the space and taste of brews. During the LYR event, you’ll be able to grab a craft beer made in-house at Old Soul, some delicious grub at the Poutine Queen and Sizzle Truck parked just outside:

That’s right: one of America’s favorite past times is being brought to the bar setting. Not only that, but been sips and calls you’ll be able to learn a thing or two about a bad babe from America’s history. Each bingo number will be associated with a revolutionary American woman who helped shape history. As you place a bean on your bingo card, you’ll hear a piece of her-story. The LYR staff has hand-picked a batch of defiant females who encapsulate America’s innovative spark. So no Cliffs Notes necessary! Just enjoy a classic game of bingo and learn a little something in the meantime, all while vying for prizes and drinking a cold brew.

This event will also help the Willow in Naples by providing them with book donation from attendees. Their mental health facility is in dire need of books to fill their shelves. Reading is a peaceful practice that many of the patients enjoy. They are also asking for notebook donations so patients can journal. Even a simple composition notebook will do.

And as always, LYR will be selling their latest lit mag pressing and merch, including stickers and patches.
