The Happy Ending bar is a bar on Broome Street. The Happy Ending Series is a music and literary series at Joe’s Pub. They both have the same name. That’s confusing. The Happy Ending bar also has some literary series’ of its own. That adds to the confusion. When you are reading at the Happy Ending bar on Broome Street, you are not reading at the Happy Ending Series at Joe’s Pub. The series’ at the Happy Ending Bar have their own names and none of those names are “The Happy Ending Series.” So, if you are reading at the Happy Ending bar, please specify the name of the series you’re reading in so there is no confusion. And, if you are reading in The Happy Ending Series, you should not tell people you are reading at the Happy Ending bar.
This has irritated me for over a year. Now that it’s off my chest, I feel a little better.
