Follow the low-lying fog, off the Mississippi, over cobblestone paths, through gravel alleys, toward the warm embrace and red-lantern light of The Poetry Brothel. Your Maître d’, Francis Shadfly, and Madam Scarlett O’Heresy, are hosting an evening of intimate literature and debauched revelry. For a small sum, our band of poetry whores will regale you with private readings. Our coterie of rambling buskers, burlesque dancers, tarot card readers, mystics, and miscreants will set you aquiver. Open to anyone with a taste for rye, an ear for hot jazz, and a bulging…wallet. Come wearing your finest burlesque, Victorian, or steampunk ensemble and receive a token for a free reading.
