I love Spring in Rochester — the palette changing from greys to greens, the warmer weather, the people emerging from their Winter cocoons — but Mother Nature’s draw was no competition for the amazing collection of writers reading their works at Cheshire on Sunday, April 9, for our latest Speak Easy. We were honored to have three of the thirteen cast members from this year’s Listen To Your Mother Show speak (which puts us at four total), mixed in with a collection of first-time readers and regulars.
We had another packed house with an appreciative audience who sipped delicious craft cocktails and enjoyed the various foodstuffs the bar was serving while taking in the quality prose and poetry being shared with them. It really was an amazing afternoon.
Next up on May 7, the Speak Easy series teams up with the Rochester Cocktail Revival for a special event titled Stories with Cocktails. Nine readers will share stories where cocktails play a role. Tickets are available here, and admission will get you two free drinks. Do you have a story to share that fits our theme? Let us know, and if we still have slots, we’ll add you to the lineup!
Please be sure to check out pictures from the April Speak Easy below, and don’t forget to sign up for our mailing list so you know what’s coming up!
