Event Details:

It's almost that time a year again. Time for cool winds and dark dusk drifting in by 6pm in early twilight night. Time for poetical types to settle in for an evening spectacularity of ol Jack and Dean and all those cats of bygone nights of yore.

This year will feature Jacks from the past but also an open invite to you Kerouac-ians to hop to the mic with your favorite of his poems, monologues and any short bits from his work you love best. Don’t have a favorite piece but want to play along? There’ll be books and pomes, papers and tomes for you to peruse and choose what creeps its way into your fingertips and gut and lips. We’ll have a sign-up sheet and call you up as we see fit, so be on guard.

You’ll find snacks and drinks and Jack’s traditional port wine communion, but if your belly requires imbibing beyond that communal sip or two you best bring yer own bottles or cans whatever gets you going.

This will be our last year hosting this October Toledo Jack classic, so whoever wants to take the reins after please holler and we’ll hand over our tack. Poets, actors, whoever loves ol Jack.
