Retreat to Goodisville 2020

UPDATE: We will now conclude the event at Naked Brewing Company, 51 Buck Rd, Huntingdon Valley, PA 19006.

This year’s Retreat to Goodisville is a special leap year edition. On Saturday, Feb 29 we will gather in Philadelphia to celebrate David Goodis’s birthday by visiting the locations where he lived as well as his family’s graves to pay our respects. The tour is bookended by lunch at Jong Ka Jib and post-tour drinks, eats, and live music at La Rose Jazz Club.

If you are interested in attending the event, please RSVP here on Facebook.

As in past years, this is BYOC (Bring Your Own Car). If you have extra seats in your car or are looking for a ride, leave a comment on the Facebook event page and let’s try to coordinate!
