Happy birthday, America! At New & Improved, we celebrated it with our first-ever Presidential Smackdown Slam, a head-to-head poetry debate judged by the electoral rabble at the Radio bar. We had a great crowd turn out to see Millard Fillmore, (b)Abraham Lincoln, Eleanor Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, Bill Clinton, and a wild cast of founding and foundering politicos. At the end of the night, the Democrats took the evening (surprise), but a soundly educational time was had by all!
Special thanks to Kevin Spak, who produced this event as part of our new themed first-Mondays plan at Radio. We’ll be back in August with more boisterousness with a comedy/poetry showcase!
