Join the YMCA’s Downtown Writers Center for an expertly guided whiskey tasting at World Lounge & Martini Bar in Hanover Square. The price of admission will be to step up to the mike and read a poem, either an original or by your favorite poet. Or, you can pay-what-you-can to listen and taste – and of course consider imbibing some of the exquisite whiskeys. The caveat? Your work MUST be centered on the theme of “spirits,” in any of the many connotations of the word. Readings by special guest poets, including nationally acclaimed poets Bruce Smith and David Lloyd, will round out the evening.
