So we had a blast at Hummingbird to Mars, the host venue for Wednesday’s “Seduction” by Poetry With a Point. Hummingbird to Mars is a quaint little speakeasy-themed venue above a local watering hole. A perfect date-night destination – we definitely plan to go back for their regular jazz performances.
Love to my writing friends who came out to support me. I need to give a shoutout also to our waiter, who enabled me expertly with that third mixed drink.
Poetry with a Point provided an eclectic range of performances, including a lecture on how to be effectively seductive from a sexologist (fun word to type, btw), standup comedy from the gigolo’s perspective, live music (+ opera!), sexy as hell persona poetry by “Leonard Cohen”, and me trying to be classy with an iffy sound system. But you ain’t seen nothing ’til you’ve seen the Cockney Choir. Good times. And I got a t-shirt.
I may or may not have video to provide later – technology is a funny thing. In the meantime, some photos of me in my Anna Akhmatova-inspired guise, courtesy of my darling husband:
