The Birmingham Public Library’s (BPL) popular Bards & Brews poetry performance/beer tasting series is hitting the road in November. Usually held the first Friday of each month, the November 2nd edition of Bards & Brews will travel to the Avondale Regional Library at 509 40th Street South. The program, which will be OPEN MIC, begins at 6:30 p.m. with live music, and poetry performances starting at 7:00. Emcee Brian “Voice Porter” Hawkins will deftly guide both novice and veteran poets through an evening of verse with topics that run the gamut from romantic relationships to the local political scene. The program is free of charge and open to the public.

Craft beer from Blue Pants Brewery out of Madison, Alabama, will be available for sampling and light refreshments will be served. Music performed by the Bo Berry Trio.Attendees must be 18 years or older to be admitted, and 21 years or older to be served. IDs will be checked.

This Friday is also the Fall Festivale at Old Car Heaven.The after-party will be at Avondale Brewing Co.—good timing for sauntering over after B&B.

Bards & Brews is usually held on the first Friday of the month at various locations around town. However, there will not be a Bards & Brews in December. We’ll be back on January 4 at the downtown Birmingham Public Library, 2100 Park Place. Check out the Bards & Brews page on Facebook for more information. This program is made possible by grants from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
