The Cafe (5115 N. Lincoln Ave.) hosts a weekly poetry/performance art open mic (hosted by Janet Kuypers). On Sunday, December 18th, the Cafe has poetry in the LAST POETRY OPEN MIKE EVER AT THE CAFE!
Join me at the Cafe (5115 North Lincoln Ave.) Sunday afternoon (12/11/11 open mic starts ~ 3:00 - 3:30 PM) for great poetry in the FINAL GET-TOGETHER FOR POETRY READINGS AT THE CAFE!!!
I am going to try to see if I can get some audio recordings of opera singer and frien...d Suzanne, possibly singing Christmas carols, to accompany Christmas-related poems of mine for the open mike, and what they hey, I may look through my archives at what I read BACK IN 1997 AT THIS VENUE, since this is the last time I get to read at Baci's establishment!!!
It is wonderful of Baci to have supported this poetry open mike since December 1996 at both Cafe Aloha and the Cafe, AND I WANT EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTED THIS POETRY OPEN MIKE - OR SUPPORTED PREVIOUS HOSTS DAVID RUBIN OR CHARLIE NEWMAN - TO COME OUT FOR THIS LAST DAY F POETRY AT HE CAFE!!!
I look forward to seeing everyone at the Cafe Sunday afternoon, for great poetry at the Cafe!
And HEY, John Yotko will have his guitar (for later in the evening), so I don't know, if anyone there wants any requests (even if it's of the original Janet/Warren song "What We Need In Life", or other stuff you've heard before), we *might* just be able to play a farewell song for this open mike location too!
