abbemar_1327517970_charlesdickens2.jpgFebruary 7, 2012, marks the 200th anniversary of Charles Dickens’ birth, and to honor the literary giant, friends of the Dickens Universe (and Dickensians from all over Santa Cruz) will be hoisting a pint at the Parish Publick House (in Almar Plaza) from 5 to 7pm.

None dare call herself a devotée of Great Expectations, Bleak House or David Copperfield and be absent from this momentous celebration.
