A flying pig, a bunch of wine guzzlers, and a group of slam poets gather in a park in Omaha, Nebraska. It’s a great start to a terrible joke. Fortunately, and I do mean that, it is not a joke. This is a fantastic event that takes place on June 6th and 7th, and has already raised more than $140,000 for the Completely KIDS Organization.
The event brings together a slam poetry event, a wine tasting, and a pork cook off. The only thing that would make this a better event is if you replaced the wine with whiskey, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers.
I have absolutely nothing but pure respect for a community that is willing to raise money for children by hosting such a fantastic event. Huge props to the event organizers. I wish we had something like this in the Portland, Oregon area. We already have Bones ‘n’ Brew, so we should just throw the Portland Poetry Slam into the mix.
