Plum Island Coffee Roasters

Plum_Island_Coffee_RoastersOn May 14th, No Fret Cooking was the featured presenter at Merrimac Open Mic   at Coffee Roasters in Newburyport, MA. This venue is at a beautiful setting on the water where local poets, authors, storytellers, musicians and more gather to share their talents with the locals from surrounding towns. As I had never been to an open mic before, I wasn’t sure what to do so I began by reading the introduction to my cookbook to give people an idea of why I wrote it and what was in it. It was a wonderful and responsive audience as they wanted to learn about some of the recipes and delighted in hearing the quirky titles for some of their favorite comfort foods. As it was an open mic, I decided to read a poem I wrote that will be in my next book. Steve played acoustically some songs from his CD’s and talked about the music. After he read some poems from his newly released poetry book, Intermodulations.
If in the Newburyport area on a Thursday evening between 6:30pm – 9:00pm, be sure to check out this mic for an evening with lots of creative people.
