Watch 100 Proof Radio live tonight at 10PM EST (Link in Bio) or ssnatl.com. How do you pair your wine and rhymes? Tonight, we’ll explore how Spoken Word Artists and Poets use cocktails during each part of their creative process while challenging them to discover if alcohol aides or debased their attempts at soulful expression. Does alcohol muse poets while writing, or help to free inhibited emotion during performance? Is alcohol used as a tool for inspiration, or is the poet self-medicating? This week we’ll explore how poets pair their Cocktails & Poetry. #tipsy Poet TONIGHT'S SPECIAL GUESTS MILK Poet, Author @milk_aka_greatnessintheflesh SHAVON TOOMBS, Poet, Event Planner @ShavonToombs TimThePoet, Poet, Entertainer @TTimthepoet DIVINE RHYMEZ, Poet, Mentor @DivineRhymez_ JE’ WESLEY Host, 100 Proof Radio with Je Wesley @jewesley06 #100profradio#cocktailchron1#cocktailchronicles#ssnatl#poets#dope#poetry#spokenword#artist#atlantapoets#atlantaspokenword
Cocktails of Resistance LITTLE GIDDING Juniper, bitter orange, gentian, rhubarb, cinchona, acid. ☄️ “Midwinter spring is its own season Sempiternal though sodden towards sundown, Suspended in time, between pole and tropic. When the short day is brightest, with frost and fire, The brief sun flames the ice, on pond and ditches, In windless cold that is the heart's heat, Reflecting in a watery mirror A glare that is blindness in the early afternoon. And glow more intense than blaze of branch, or brazier, Stirs the dumb spirit: no wind, but pentecostal fire In the dark time of the year. “ -T. S. Eliot Little Gidding
Our special little bartending poet, Philip Schaefer, is leading a 6 week workshop on Tuesday evenings in the tasting room via the 406 @beargrasswriting. All levels welcome, so if you’d like to spend time talking about poetry and your writing with a hopefully more clothed version of what’s above, just follow this link for more information — http://www.406workshop.com/spring-2017-courses/2018/2/13/poetry-workshop-writing-inside-the-lines-instructor-phillip-schaefer @philbobaggins8 #questionablezen#hisbellyissmiling#cocktailsandpoetry
Karl takes a minute to write down some sonnets he's been developing as part of his new cocktail bar concept -- "Sonnets and Bonnets" where each cocktail is paired with a whimsical hat and mediocre poetry.
It's so exciting to see so much creativity unfold during @wordsandwine at The Yard on Wednesdays! Come by starting at 8 p.m. and let your talent shine via open mic poetry, musical performances, dancing, art displays and more. Also, enjoy the talent of our rockstar bartenders as they serve delicious cocktails and craft beer at @thebarattheyard.
