Bowery Poetry Club

Looks like a nice place to relax, have a sandwich and a drink, and see and/or hear a poetry slam, word jazz, theater performance, new music, or browse the indie publisher's offerings of the up and coming poets in NYC. The Bowery Poetry Club was founded by "Poetry Czar" Bob Holman, who's contributions to writing and the poetry movement in NYC have been many. They also seem to be opening up a school, "study abroad on the Bowery" which is no doubt going to educate the participants in all things poetic. Since Rap and Hip Hop became so commercially successful, there has been a tremendous nationwide resurgence in poetry - both spontaneous and composed performance in public places. In case you may not realize, the Bowery has been famous for years as the street for the down and out, but now also experiencing a resurgence too, with new restaurants, bars, residences and stores going up suddenly all along the area once only known for CBGBs and really seedy flophouses.
