    I would like to thank each and every one of you who attended, those who read their work and those who rated our event and left a comment! It means a lot to me to have your support and feedback. Poetry is a tough sell, but we make it as artistic, relevant and fun as possible. Our next poetry & wine salon will take place on Friday, October 5, 2012, and it's one of our biggest and best events, a very special Halloween edition with a reading of Edgar Allan Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart! We'll have a microphone for the softspoken next time, so please, feel free to bring a bottle of wine and most definitely your poetry to share! Spread the word and bring a friend along!

    What an awesome event! I am a published writer and I got to read a little of my work which was really fun! The only thing I had an issue with was the lack of a microphone. If a mic was available I could have concentrated less on projecting my voice and more on putting more emotions into the words spoken. Plus it can be extremely difficult to hear some poets!

    This event was awesome and inspiring. I had a great time. Very professionally organized and yet also very relaxed and easy to be a part of. This was my first visit AND also my first MeetUp! For anyone considering, its a great group of people who want to listen to ambient music and poetry, or even (gasp!) get up and read. A poetry SLAM! Set in a quaint little courtyard with a canopy of trees, it's shared by several other shops, gallery, a pub and a club. Ricardo organized and greeted me as soon as I arrived. Everyone was friendly and fun, and there were many very creative poets. At times it was hard to hear because of the ambient music, background noise, competing club, or simply low-key reading voices. And I sat up front! There is very mod-priced wine by the cup at the hosting shop, and also the pub in the courtyard. Or, bring a bottle of your favorite wine to share, perhaps. This group meets every 1st Friday of the month, and I find myself looking forward to October!

    The affair was good and the crowd was nice and friendly. The poetry reading got better as the night went on. The wine was great and resonably priced. Parking was not a problem.
