On December 14, 2010, Open City editors Thomas Beller and Joanna Yas threw a party at The Magician bar on the Lower East Side of Manhattan to celebrate the holiday season and the launch of the new issue, Open City #30. Poet Alissa Quart and fiction writer Ed Park read their contributions to the issue. A fantastic time was had by all! Photographs by Beowulf Sheehan. (Click on each image for a larger version.)
