The Cafe open mic
5115 N. Lincoln Ave.
$2 & 2 drink minimum (any drink, even bottled water or soda)
The Cafe (5115 N. Lincoln Ave.) hosts a weekly poetry/performance art open mic (hosted by Janet Kuypers). May 17th has a mini-feature night, where throughout the open mic people can read up to 10 minutes of material. Included in the mini-feature evening will be the host's short story "Stalker," read by both Janet Kuypers and John Yotko (as it was performed in the 12/04/10 Lake Villa video show "The Stories of Women").
For info about the open mic and the 2011 schedule (or getting the chance to sign up for your OWN feature, or even to check out the menu for the great food at the Cafe, because we have a collection of books to choose from for anyone who orders food at the Cafe during the poetry evening), you can always check out http://www.chaoticarts.org/thecafe/ for weekly podcasts, feature videos or future schedules.
