You might not necessarily “get” poetry, but you’re sure as hell going to try when women in lingerie are reading it to you and your date. Set up like the bordellos of turn-of-the-century New Orleans and Paris, the Poetry Brothel is a super-sexy night of burlesque, live jazz, and poetry. Hire a poetry “whore” for the evening, who will take you both into the back room for a very intimate kind of reading.
