Monday, 3 June 2013: Mongoose vs Cobra vs Beat (down) Poetry

Posted by mike | Meetings | Posted on June 3rd, 2013

mvsclogoTonight at MvsC1011 McGowan, there is absolutely nothing poetic happening, except for a nice pint or cocktail and maybe something to nosh on. Texas pints are half off.  We’re actually happy for the promise of a quiet evening, and would like to state for the proverbial record that the poet picked the fight with us last time.  With all apologies to Madeleine Peyroux, we’ll see you there at 8 PM.

On this date in 1926, Allen Ginsberg was born.  If it weren’t July June in Houston, we’d suggest a black mock turtleneck and a beret as attire for the evening.  Instead, just fire up the 10k Maniacs and snap your fingers.
