Easy Speak 5th Monday

This from the EasySpeak folks:

Easy Speak Seattle

Easy Speak Seattle

Tell us your poems, sing us your songs, speak us your paragraphs.  Or give us anything else you can perform in five minutes.

Greetings Easy Speakers,

If you thought you were going to get a break from Easy Speak on the fifth Monday of the month . . . oh no, my friend, you are so wrong.  Paul Nelson is responsible for this invitation:
  

As there is no Easy Speak event scheduled on that orphan 5th Monday, I recommend you bring a 5th of your favorite gin (or whatever it is you drink) to the Spring Street Center for a gathering less formal in nature, more suited to chatting than open mic, but with the notion we may read each other our recent best.

Spring Street Center is 1101 15th, at the corner of 15th & Spring. You can park on the street or in the lot at 16th & Union, a block north and one block east of the house.

Show up anytime after 7:30 on Monday, March 31, 2014. (If it’s fun, we may try it again June 30, 2014 and September 29, 2014.)

Should be fun to hang out.

Link to Spring Street Center.

Thank you Paul!  I (this is Munro speaking) am looking forward to it.
