Stone Soup Poetry
T.T. the Bear’s Place, 10 Brookline St, Cambridge; (617) 227-0845
Stone Soup Poets gather every Monday evening from 8 to 10:30 at this popular club in Central Square.
TT’s is a raucous rock n’ roll bar most other nights, so the atmosphere is more funky than the bookstore cafe settings. Have a beer with your poetry instead of espresso. Admission is $3.
