Second installment of one of the moreinteresting and over the top little mags of the Mimeograph Revolution, which was not for sale and privately distributed. It is also an interesting and early intersection with (or send-up of) the concept of Happenings in Fluxus and the art world. This installment is described on the cover as "A restaurant wherein John Montgomerty, Doug Blazek, Kent Taylor and Tuli Kupferberg order all kinds of strange foods that real people dont eat the em anyway fill almust up belch tell things to each other get up to go home and go to sleep but slyly get out of sight and find someone to make LOVE to. this publication may be chopped up burned cooked on a spoon and mainlined and is recommended as an real APHRODISIAC" [sic].

Underneath the packet of crumbs stapled in is written, in D. R. Wagner's hand "Man does not live by poetry alone (sic)."

Rear sheet has pulled away from right stapled, but still attached by the other. The staples are lightly rusted and there are minor handling creases. Very good. Item #28905
