The beginning of the week is sometimes hard to get going coming off a busy weekend. Not really wanting to go back to work, kinda wanna keep the fun going. Well if looking to continue the fun and want to catch a good drink and a spoken word or two from some of your favorite poets right here in the capital region. Check out open mic in Troy at Troys Kitchen. Kicks off at 6 pm and it's free to the public.
