House of Poetry
House of Poetry, with your host "Mahogany," is a monthly showcase of local poets. Each event includes a feature poet and a open mic segment where poets of all skill levels can share their gifts with a live audience. The evening is often augmented with live music, dance and drama. DJ Sun Ra provides music that compliments the flow of the evening. The House is On Fiyah! Don't miss the great event every 3rd Friday of the month. The cost of entry is $10, $5 if you'll be participating in the open mic segment.
