And what about Friday?

Looking for something fun to do Friday? Go to Cornelia Street Cafe (29 Cornelia St.; off 6th Ave. between W. 4th and Bleecker) where Three Room Press's Kathi Georges will be guest hostess, for an enthusiastic open reading and special feature reader Taylor Mali, King of Spoken Word.

Mali was one of the original poets to appear on the HBO original series "Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry." He was also the "golden-tongued, Armani clad villain" of Paul Devlin's 1997 documentary film "SlamNation," which chronicled the National Poetry Slam Championship of 1996, the year of Mali's first national team championship. He's led six of his seven national poetry slam teams to the finals stage and won the championship itself a record four times before anyone had even tied him at three.

Doors open 5:45; reading runs from 6-8 and the modest price of only $6 includes a free drink!

If you want to sign up to read this week: come early!! It's sure to be packed.
