#3 in The Rumpus series ALBUM: Profiles of Artists and Writers at Work.Rosie Schaap writes The New York Times Magazine’s “Drink” column and tends bar at South in Park Slope, Brooklyn. When we met, Rosie had just returned from touring for her new memoir Drinking with Men, and catching a game at one of her favorite local soccer haunts. (Rosie’s beloved Tottenham Hotspur F.C. won their match 2-1 against archrival Arsenal.) Over a pint, we spoke about sports and poetry, and the unfolding of Rosie’s life as a storyteller and lover of bars, which began with an unlikely teenage fortune-telling gig aboard a commuter train bar car.
