Lets get Social!



Come enjoy a wonderful reading from our featured artist Cynthia Gallaher!

On November 16th, beginning at 7:00pm, Poetry Night at the Outdoor Café is delighted to announce that Cynthia Gallaher will be our featured poet. She will be reading from her most recent poetry book, Drenched, a collection of poems that lyrically explore the world of liquids as various as green tea, coffee, beer, Champagne, vinegar, bloodlines, Chicago sewers, and Niagara Falls, just to mention a few. 

Cynthia Gallaher is a Chicago-based poet and playwright. She is the author of three poetry collections and two chapbooks. The Chicago Public Library lists her among its “Top Ten Requested Chicago Poets.”

Following Cynthia’s reading, Bruce Thorn of Ambiguous End, guitarist, abstract painter, and art critic will entertain us during the musical interlude with his thoughtful, sparse, chord based, original songs.

An open mic follows Bruce Thorn’s performance. Please bring a few poems to share at the open mic. Your hosts, Jenene Ravesloot and Tom Roby IV would like that.

Future features, open mics, and other literary and musical events will take place every 1st and 3rd Friday of each month, 7:00pm to 9:00pm. Street parking is available. Enjoy the conviviality of the Outdoor Café, its fine selection of coffee, tea, desserts, sandwiches, great poetry and great music.

We're here!
