A Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight

Blog Posted:9/17/2012 6:46:00 AM
In Reno, NV, down on first street, is a little coffee shop called Java Jungle. On Monday evenings they do an open mic. Tonight, Drake Eszes (from PoetrySoup) myself, and Erin Thomas (Zahhar, from AllPoetry) are meeting there, and we will all be reading some of our poetry. These guys are really AWESOME poets!  It's going to be a really good time, fun for all. I have read there before, myself, but Erin and Drake have not. So our little community is in for a whopper of a surprise. Consider this an open invitation to anyone in the area who would like to join us. You are very welcome. It's going to be a 'hot time in the old town tonight!' Love and hugs, Catie :)
Oh yeah, the open mic starts at 7:30 pm, and if you want to read you really need to get there by 7pm to put your name on a list. hugs, Catie

    I would like to find some place nearer to home to read. If I can summon up courage.

    Sounds like fun... I went to one in Missouri and loved it... But my voice keeps breaking when I get nervous... The whole area went quiet and even the cooks were peaking around at me. They seemed to love my story poems. But it's far away at night... and I haven't been back. But it was sooo cool.

    So you guys are all in Reno, huh? I drove through there once. Who knew it would have more to offer poets than this big college area where I am living!!! Good on you guys. Have FUN.
