*We are starting the night with Attack of the Typewriters! Here's Hiya's eloquent description: "Political letter-writing for everyone. We bring the typewriters -- you bring the opinions, the rage, the questions, the frustration. Not too many people know it, but one letter = 100 votes. Really! And it's easier when you're not alone. Grab a drink and tell the President (or any politician) what you want. You can write about anything you want, and we'll have a sample letter or two in case you're not sure what to write about. No one can stop you, after all: It's your right! We'll help you compose your (short!) letter, if you want, and answer all your questions. We also bring stamps, envelopes, tons of paper, a board to tally how many voters we've repped, a ding-bell, and notebooks full of letters we've written in the past and responses we've gotten; it's sometimes funny and sometimes sad."
