Reading James Joyce’s “Ulysses” Is the Centerpiece of Nighttown’s Bloomsday

Fri 6/15-Sun 6/17

While Nighttown in Cleveland Heights is a dinner spot and jazz club that’s a favorite of respectable middle class couples, it’s named after a disreputable district of Dublin in the James Joyce novel Ulysses. And much of its décor celebrates Irish culture.

It also celebrates James Joyce’s seminal work with Bloomsday, named after Ulysses’ central character Leopold Bloom. For three days, Friday through Sunday, from 10am through closing time, you can drop by, pick a character and read a part from the novel.

From 6-8pm the second annual Marjorie Johnson Memorial Dinner takes place,; reading continues though dinner. Anyone is welcome to read, and to wear appropriate costume if desired. For more info call Bill Kennedy at 440-564-7760.
