And hey, did I mention this Fringe Festival thing? Recover quick from Speakeasy, because the Fringe is upon us that very week, from May 17-28. Of special interest to you as smart cookies:
- The Fringe Poetry Smackdown, taking place on the outdoor stage at Loch Haven Park on Saturday May 19 and 26
- The Fringe Toast-Off (you remember those from Will's. right?), also on the outdoor stage at 10 p.m. on Friday May 25
Both are hosted by your less-than-heavenly host, Tod Caviness. You can also find him (uh, me), and some of your favorite Speakeasy regulars creating poetry for bucks and beer at the Poetry Vending Machine - look for it on the lawn during all hours of the festival.
