We’re not big on self-promotion here at City Paper. It doesn’t look good on us. But when the event in question is exceptional, exceptions must be made. Azuka Theatre is hosting the sixth annual live reading of our “I Love You, I Hate You” column, wherein notable Philly actors, including Mary Lee Bednarek, Bi Jean Ngo and Steve Wright, will perform some of the best entries with all the rancor or romantic fervor they deserve. Look out for drink specials provided by Philadelphia Distilling, Yards and Bacardi.i
Mon., Feb. 11, 5 p.m., $15-$20, Chris’ Jazz Cafe, 1421 Sansom St., 215-563-1100, azukatheatre.org.
