About The Potluck
Plates, cups, napkins, cutlery, and filtered water will be provided. We have a few outlets if you wish to bring hot food. We do have access to a fridge if needed. If you want to bring hot food or use the fridge, please shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can make sure we have space for you. We will also have index cards to label each dish so those with certain dietary restrictions can enjoy the potluck as well. Vegan and vegetarian food is encouraged but not required.
About The Open-Mic
While most BONK! Events are curated with a specific lineup, this event is first come, first serve. There will be a sign up sheet which will be open all night until full. Performers can perform one of their original works or share a favorite memory of BONK! (Note: there is no guarantee that the sign up sheet will go in order. Esteban has a mind of his own.)
About The Poetry Swap
Also called a poetry potluck, people are encouraged to bring multiple copies of their favorite poem or poems that they have written to share with the other attendees. There will me a place for people to put their poems for others to browse and take a copy if they so wish. If you are interested in participating, you can either print your poems or write them out by hand in a legible font. Please provide at least 10 copies of the work you want to share.
T-Shirts will be available for sale for $15 each. Free BONK! stickers to all who either perform for the open-mic or bring a dish to pass.
