No espresso machines spurting loudly, no students studying in the back, no yuppies asking, "what is that?" when they hear a poem. No, No, no. Instead it there is the pok-pok-pok of the balls ricocheting on the table, Larry Colker laughing as I lose again, and words, words, words of the poets going out to people who actually seem to get it.
Oh, yes, there is a host named Lob.
Support this venue! Or start one of your own just like it. Poetry, pool and beer - yes! This is a good thing. I likes. I likes a lot.
