Summer Poetry Pub Crawl Coming Saturday, June 13th
A “Summer Poetry Pub Crawl” will rhyme its way through various Burien pubs on Saturday, June 13th, starting at 6:45pm.
It’s a “Singles Meetup” event, and according to their website:
Poets, Performance Artists, Friends and many others will bring poetry to the streets of B-Town as they eat and drink, read poetry and then drink some more!
Poets and friends will descend upon the Burien Neighborhood to eat and drink and visit up to 10 pubs in a 6 block vicinity. Dress up (like your favorite real or imagined poetâ€¦”look itâ€™s Emily Dickinson, Ann Sexton, T.S. Eliot, Dylan Thomas, Bill Shakespeare, Chuck Bukowski, the unknown Poetâ€¦â€¦!”) and bring poems to recite to the crowd. A few guitar pickers and singers may join us too.
We will bring POETRY to the PUB people of Burien on Saturday June 13th!!
First we will gather and eat at Mick Kellyâ€™s, a unique Irish Pub known for custom curing some of the best Corned Beef youâ€™ve ever tasted, Reubens, Corned Beef and Cabbage, Shepherds Pie, Irish Stew… Guinness and spirits. Gather at 6:45 pm to 7:15 pm. We’ll hang there until about 8:00 pm and then it’s out into the streets of Burien where we will read and dash in and out of Pubs and other establishments.
Bring flashlights, whoâ€™s got a bull horn? noisemakers, slide whistles, clickers, castanets, small bongoâ€™s, cow bells (need more cow bells! as we visit the pubs of Downtown Burien (a four block area).
