Become a Believer and we'll see you at the next one!

A week after a smoke-related postponement, Hell Gate contributors and Believer-level subscribers gathered at Lowlands in Gowanus on Wednesday evening, to bring the beauty of blogs to the microphone.

Complimentary wine flowed, stirring conversation followed, and with just a slight rain delay, Hell Gate staffers shared tales of elevated dog shows, roses with interesting names, historically and architecturally significant parking spaces, a mythical Knicks season that's still ongoing, and why, ultimately, readings will let you down (in a cool way).
