Some folks might choose to spend the night before the holiday with their family: instead, we decided to have a Wednesday before Thanksgiving with a sarcastic, booze-slinging, intellectual who loves us so much he just can’t show it. What? It was a perfect evening with bartender Adam Stone, who offered a stingingly good selection of new work, plus some very strong drinks for those interested and able to imbibe. The slam featured newcomers and old friends alike, with Bobby Crawford taking top honors in his continued quest for the Champion of Champions title.
Next Wednesday: local poetic sensation Nicole Terez Dutton offers up work from her new book, If One of Us Should Fall, read as beautifully as you’d expect. We’re closing in on the end of qualifications for slam team selection, so expect hot competition in the open 8×8 poetry slam.
