Earth Month, Poetry Month, and April Fool’s Day all mixed into one!
You can expect excellent environmental poets (including Jim Blackburn & Chuck Wemple) reading from their work, as well as amateur comedians wrangled by a former, award-wining stand-up comedian (Todd Running), and opportunities for open mike.
Please consider submitting a poem or a pun for inclusion in the event!
Hopefully, the event will not devolve in to bad limericks such as the following:
There once was a big hive of bees
Whose residents pollinated trees.
While going to sup
They were sprayed with Roundup.
Now both are endangered species.
To be held in the wine cellar at Georgia’s Market
. Space is limited, so sign up early!
Parking on the street is free after 6 pm. You can also take light rail, as Georgia’s Market is on Main Street, and there are a plethora of bus routes that go through downtown.
From the Houston Rockets Marketing and Promotions Department:
On March 17, 2014 The Houston Rockets will host an Environmental Awareness Night at the Toyota Center. The Houston Rockets events department is looking for environmental awareness organizations to come out to the Toyota Center to promote their organization, and discuss environmental concerns and educate Houston Rockets fans on what they can do to improve the environment. The goal of the awareness event is to educate and learn about ways to improve the environment we live in. Participating organizations are asked to not bring any materials, or bring up any divisive political issues when discussing the environment. Participating organizations can bring green decorative items or props for display, and to please bring educational materials about recycling and improving the environment for younger Rockets fans. For information on how to participate, please email Debora Khama at firstname.lastname@example.org
