Theater Exile Hosting Fergie Fest at RUBA Club Tomorrow

Fergus "Fergie" Carey

Surprisingly, there are still tickets available for Theater Exile’s Fergie Fest, happening Thursday evening at the venerable RUBA Club. The evening serves as a roast for barman extraordinaire and patron saint of the local arts community, Fergus “Fergie” Carey of Fergie’s Pub, Monk’s Cafe, and Grace Tavern (among other fine watering holes) fame, and a fundraiser for the theater’s forthcoming production by Bruce Graham about former Philly Mayor Frank Rizzo. The evening promises food, drink and fun. With Fergie in focus and a roster of roasters that includes Jess Conda, Lee Etzold, Madi Distefano and Doogie Horner, we’re guessing the emphasis will be on fun.
