Truly a highlight of the Bowery Poetry year, the annual Single Malt Scotch Poetry Slam is a celebration of unique flavors found in the divergent worlds of New York avant whatever poetry and prized single malt Scotches, blending into a highland fling of performance and booze. Overseen by the bekilted Roberts, poets Fitterman and Holman, five fresh poets introduce the Scotches while the audience tipples, giggles, guzzles and roars, a tasting which continues as the poet segues into his/her own verse. The audience then rates the Scotches, not the poems, claro? This year's poets are curated by Steve Zultanski, while the newly-released Bruichladdich "Laddie Ten" is a favorite amongst the Scotch connoisseurs.
With Poets: Shiv Kotecha, Sophia Le Fraga, Holly Melgard, Rod Smith, and Aaron Winslow.
Tickets: $25 online
