Open Bar Hour with the 2017 National Slam Team | Pure Ink Poetry Tag Team Slam

Members of Pure Ink Poetry (slam) are hoping to send its national team to Denver for the National poetry Slam. In order to do that, they need to raise some funds. The best way to do that is to host a happy hour with “all you can drink specials”. The fundraiser will be held at GBGB (at EXPO Market), on Friday, July 21. Supporters can pay $25.00 for 2 hours or $30.00 for three hours – well drinks and domestic beer. There will also be drink specials at the event, along with live music.

This opportunity is a very big deal for Buffalo poets, who want to compete at this national event. Pure Inkers and supporters are encouraged to show their support by attending the happy hour. It’s a guaranteed good time, that will help to get Buffalo’s poetic voice heard loud and clear.

Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
