Do You Like Poetry? I Mean Do You Really Like Poetry?

I wonder if the Tucson Poetry Festival considered an Al Valenzuela-style commerical for their spring fundraiser: "Do you like poetry? I mean do you really like poetry?"

On Friday, Feb. 11, these poetry peeps are serving up Salsa and Tequila, 7 p.m. at 1336 E. 12th St., between Highland and Park, south of Broadway.

From the press release:

Bring your honey, or come alone in search of great company among lovers of poetry to enjoy a beautiful evening under a crescent moon in a classy, intimate backyard setting. We'll be sampling a variety of premium Tequilas and trying our hips on some sexy salsa moves with inspiration from friendly instructors and live salsa music.

All of this ambiance and flavor comes to you for just $25 a single or $40 a couple, and your contribution supports the Tucson Poetry Festival, April 1-2, 2011, featuring talented guest poets Jeffrey McDaniel, Luci Tapahonso, Danny Solis, and Niki Herd.

Get your tickets NOW by emailing tucsonpoetryfestival@gmail.com.
