I didn't know what a poetry slam was. My husband wanted to go. I complied. The host was outstanding and funny. The place was a little crowded. The poetry that I heard these young people recite, that they had written from their hearts, was passionate...More

The show I saw was good. I have a problem with a place called a cafe and they don't really serve coffee or food etc. There was a bar and that's all.
