      I was sick last weekend with a cold so I totally understand. But I really hope you feel better and can make it after all!

    Grateful I went last night. Ricardo's last "poem" honoring ALL who have past was Real, Respectful, and downright Epic! I don't think he missed a single person in all of humanity LOL =) ... Muchisimas gracias hermano!

      Understood. It was awesome as usual. But don't take my word for it, I'm just the host. Check out comments others have made here and at past Majestical Roof Poetry & Wine Salons. Yes, join us next month on Friday, December 7th!

    I want to thank everyone who made it, who commented, who rated us, who shared their poetry and joined our community! We hold a poetry & wine salon the first Friday of every month, so we hope to see you again on Friday, December 7, 2012 and bring a friend!

    Dear folks- We're out in an open courtyard, so feel free to bring your own food and drink if you'd like. We will be offering wine in the gallery that hosts us. We'll have a simple Dia de los Muertos altar so feel free to bring photos of your dearly departed and any offering you'd like, like fruit, pan dulce, cigarettes/cigars, liquor. And if you write, bring a poem to share for our open mic portion! One last thing, bring a sweater or coat as it'll get chilly. We might have a heat lamp, but we might not. We may just have to keep warm with wine and words!

    November 2, 2012

  • Ricky L.

    Welcome Nancy M.! You can come over dressed from work no problemo! I'll be your MC and dressed up with Dia de L@s Muert@s facepaint!

    I won't be able to get there until late, if I can make it, too. Maybe by 9pm depending on when the Artivist Film Fest screening ends. Chance it might go on past 10pm? Hoping so...thanks!

    • Ricky L.

    1 · November 1, 2012

    • Ricky L.

      Yes Junjun, we give people time to get there because of traffic or whatever. We usually start some time after 7:15. We're in an open courtyard, so you can bring your own food and/or drink if you'd like. We also offer wine in the gallery. And even a poem to share if you'd like for our open mic!

    Hey Monica, Victor it's gonna be a crazy night!

    October 27, 2012

    • Victor L.

      I'm really looking forward to this! Lets do this! but im a newbie... sooooo I just walk in and sit down? is that the plan?

      November 1, 2012

    • Ricky L.

      We're out in a courtyard, so it's cool and casual. You can bring food and drink; if not, there's wine in the gallery and two bars nearby that let you bring a drink over. That way you can chill while we take you on a trip with music and words, and we also have an open mic portion if you have some poetry or writing to share.

    Are cigarettes/cigars for the dead or the live? I mean is it allowed to smoke in this event?

    1 · October 24, 2012

    • Lily

      Thanks Ricardo! I hate smoking. So I suppose this is not for me. You guys have fun!

      1 · October 24, 2012

    • Ricky L.

      Well, I actually haven't seen anybody smoke at the past salons, and we meet every month. So I hope you reconsider and join us after all.

  • Ricky L.

    Welcome to your 1st Lalo! And it'll be better than good! We got the best poetry, music, art and community in town. You'll see how different and fun it is from what people usually expect from poetry.
