'A POETS GUIDE TO THE BARS' 'THESE ARE THE PLACES DREAMERS, SEEKERS, SEARCHERS, SCHEMERS GO'

 HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Feb. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Guide books...Guide books...What would we do without these wonderful informative books that tell us everything from where to go, where to dine, where to visit, where to stay, and even where to shop. Now, direct from the magic city of Los Angeles, Calif. comes "A Poets Guide To The Bars".
 "A Poets Guide To The Bars" is not your typical guide book. It is a poetic journey through Hollywood's' inner city bars. The bars that are included in this one-of-a-kind literary guide book all have their own individual character, history and their own personal heritage...they've been around the block a few times, so to speak. These are the places dreamers, seekers, searchers, schemers go. They add music to the night. The Poets Guide To The Bars offers a unique insight and perspective, in an unusual manner and poetic style. The book was written by Kenneth Donato, a.k.a., as Sonny, who has worked as a bartender in a full spectrum of Hollywood's bar and club scene including the beer and shot joints, to the most famous of Hollywood's clubs. "Reading the book allows one the ability to experience the feel for a night on the town in Hollywood," stated Sonny.
 Sonny has a distinguished career, and in many rights has become a legend as a Hollywood bartender, being voted California's favorite bartender in 1984. Sonny has also co-written a screenplay and has devoted most of his recent past to the writing of this book. His poetry has been published in numerous prestigious magazines and has been read at poetry reading throughout California. This book represents his style in a street-smart but sensitive fashion.
 The book includes 30-some-odd original poems and rants by Kenneth Donato, along with a stark photographic expose of these famous Hollywood bars. It is the words-eye view, spoken with barstool vision, laid out plain, a view of Hollywood from the inside out. Discover Hollywood's other side, the real side of town becomes yours through these pages.
 "A brilliant work by a gifted artist"...Charles Champlain, former arts and entertainment director, L.A. Times, internationally acclaimed film critic. "A double shot of imagery, with a water back in the face"...Michael Ironside, internationally acclaimed film actor.
