Hey, you! SHUT IT! No, no, I'm not telling you to shut up! That's the name of a new event in which participants sit quietly and read while enjoying food and drink. SHUT IT! is inspired by Christopher Frizzelle's Silent Reading Parties in Seattle. Frizelle, the editor-in-chief of The Stranger, hosts the event in the Fireside Room of the Sorrento Hotel. Tacoma's version, on the other hand, will be at the Java Jive. Ha ha ... just kidding! It actually takes place in the lobby of the swanky Murano Hotel. The online Tacoma magazine Post Defiance presents the event. One other piece of information to contemplate while you're sitting with your copy of Moby Dick and enjoying a plate of anchovies: SHUT IT! is actually a clever acronym for Silent Happy Uninterrupted Time for Intoxicating Texts. Turn off that cellphone!

SHUT IT!, 5:30-8:30 p.m., first Monday of the month, Hotel Murano lobby, 1320 Broadway, Tacoma
