New Years’ Eve Suggestion # 1

New Years Day - Happy 2015!  Don’t get inside yet!  Ok, go inside. Shower and go and “seize” your day and start with poetry!

Poetry?  Why not? Plus, it’s a benefit so dig and pull out a crumpled $20.00.  You have something left from the night before—right?

If you have a New Year’s Eve hangover, then maybe some verse and food?

Tradition, on the first afternoon of the year, almost 200 of the city’s best poets, artists and performers gather at St. Mark’s Church in-the-Bowery and, one after another, recite their work to a hall full of listeners.

Hey, you might catch Philip Glass, Eileen Myles, Anne Waldman and Adeena Karasick, and local shops will cater the 11-hour affair.

The Poetry Project at St. Mark's Church - Starting at 2PM. Double check the time.
