Tuesdays are the second most dreadful day of the work week, which is why it’s primetime to go out and let your creative juices flow, right along with the taps. Songwriters, comedians, poets and everyone in between is welcome — spit your own creative, original assemblage of words for the chance to score $40 in cash
. Why only original works? “We believe it helps grow our city’s culture. It encourages people to reveal something about themselves. It takes brains, hard work and balls.” We’ll drink to that. This week’s host is Lucas of the soon-to-be-retired The Dukes are Dead. Tuesdays. Sign up begins around 8:30 p.m., performances kick off at 9 p.m. and end at 12:30 a.m. Free. 21 and up.
