And we are not making it easy on her! SARAH SAPIENZA earned a shot at the title last month! This is going to be an incredible match-up, last summer they were teammates on the Worcester Poetry Slam Team, just months later, they will be molding words and secret ingredients into fierce competitive fire as Sarah takes her shot at the title and trophy! 3 rounds, 3 judges, 3 scoring categories and of course, one diabolical secret ingredient from our chairman, YOSH SHARTIN!

We’re rotating house bands now a days! We’re super excited to mix dg-show-2014things up and keep our audience and open mic poets guessing! This week’s house band will blend some old and new, so come down and get down! We’re always looking for snack time volunteers. Wonderful work by ELIZABETH SOUSA on visual art last week. Art auction winner made out like a bandit. Bring them dollars and win big next week as we welcome a new artist to the diesel easel! HAPPY BIRTHDAY EMILEE MORREALE!!! You rule culinary school!
