Every Tuesday at 7pm this Williamsburg venue opens its stage to the public. This year, our sister magazine The L moved its own (curated) summer reading series, Literary Upstart, here, sort of last minute, taking over one of the open mic nights. An older man wandered in, asking about our event, and seemed very sad that there would be no open mic that night. We invited him to stay and hang out, to meet new people in the local literary community, but he said if he couldn’t read his own stuff, what was the point? We hope he wasn’t representative of the crowd that usually shows up here.
