Hmm, What Rhymes With Pervert?

Knowing the pervs who read Night & Day, we betcha you’ll keep reading when we tell you that we’ve found something that serves up “mental foreplay and verbal intercourse.” If you’ve made it this far, told you so. Now, we should tell you about this unique spot, huh? Well, it’s called PoetBar, and it’s more a state of mind than a place, concocting lyrical poetry with local spoken-word events. The première of the event is titled PoetBar presents Voices-N-Vibes and features appearances by HBO Def Comedy Jam poet Shanelle Gabriel; Jahbu Ourinde, who’s appeared on BET’s Lyric Café; and international recording artist Tracy King, who was called "poet of the year" by the Chicago Music Awards. An open-mic session precedes the performance.
