POETS! every 1st & 3rd Monday
Monday, August 19th – 7-9 pm

open mic follows

Hosted by San Francisco troubadour-in-chief Jerry Ferraz and San Francisco Poet Laureate Kim Shuck.

No charge, but bring a few bucks to help us reward the featured poets! Sign up for the open mic before the features at 7, or during the break.
