A Busboys and Poetry Event hosted this week by Chris Poetryzchyld Thomas

Poetryzchyld is a poet, author, and host who began writing at the age of thirteen. His extraordinary ability to transform his emotions into art turned into a love for poetry that never ceased. Poetryzchyld’s performance poetry has given him the opportunity to share his work through radio on WPGC’s Love Talk and Slow Jams and WRTR Real Talk. He was a three-time guest poet for Studio 2001 Art Gallery, a featured poet for Save the Arts Community, Sweet and Natural, Spit Dat, Spoken World and a host of other venues. Poetryzchyld has published three books titled: “Moodz’ Ring”, “Voices Carry” and "Coloring outside the Lines."

PIEL CAFE POETRY is a duo group consisting of Julian Randall and Noel Quiñones.

Piel Café’s work is real and raw, thoughtful and powerful —drawn from the lives of minority students, and then spun into tales that teach, transform, and entertain.

For two hours, audiences can expect a diverse chorus of voices and a vast array of professional spoken word performers, open mic rookies, musicians and a different host every week. Expect to be moved, expect a packed house, expect the unexpected, but above all come with an open mind and ear.

$5 Cover. On the day of the event, tickets can be purchased online here starting at midnight and in the restaurant starting at 10:00 AM (cash only). No refunds. Ticket purchase limit of 4 per person. Tickets will be sold at the door if available. Guests must have their wristbands (tickets) on upon entering the event.

Seating is available on a first come, first seated basis. No saved or reserved seats are allowed. Failure to check in within 30 minutes of advertised start time may result in a forfeiture of seats.
