speechBONUS RUCKUS: “GREAT SPEECH or POEM?” Guess where the line is from challenge! We think poets sell out too often and land cushy gigs as political speech writers. This is our hypothesis. So let’s test that one out again and see if ya’ll can tell the difference. We’ll bring lines from classic poems and speeches, recite them. You buzz the buzzer, guess and get a point. First to three gets a sweet prize! Musical guests, visual artists to e announces. Stay tuned an in tune for the facebook invite! We’re super excited to rock out at Nick’s again. Thanks to so many folks who came out and tore it up last week as we took the show outside! So bananas! Let’s keep this incredible summer going! Let’s make good decisions this weekend people!
