Literary Pub Crawl, Anyone?

Seattle has a great event celebrating authors coming up later this week. We’ve all heard of traditional pub crawls, but this one has live author readings at each venue. In fact, 60 authors will be featured at 19 different venues. Authors and drinking – sometimes, they just go together!
If you could see a live reading by any author – past or present – who would it be? What would be the perfect beverage to complement their reading? Comment here!
