If Nerd Nite is over capacity, then head over to the public library. The public library is hosting a poetry social starting at 7:00 on Wednesday. The library promises to provide "snacks and a carnival spirit."
Here is the description on the Lawrence Public Library website:
"We invite you to join us for our monthly Poetry Social, held in the LPL Gallery, the third Wednesday of each month. This laid back affair provokes the wordsmyth in each of us to read, slam or improvise a poem on a particular theme. In February, our theme is "Passion" interpreted loosely. These themes aim to challenge the daredevils and inspire the demure.
