Bert Moniz is Having a Revolution at The Jackson Inn- May 16

Raconteur Bert Moniz is presenting a cabaret at Wilmington’s favorite dive bar, The Jackson Inn. Moniz has been producing these shows for a few years to delight of the large crowd that fills the inn. The show is eclectic to include music, poetry, dance, drama and whatever else Bert can add to the mix.  There isn’t a cover charge for this event. The Jackson Inn is 40 minutes from Philadelphia and worth the drive. The Jackson Inn is located at 101 North Dupont Road, Wilmington, Delaware,

Even in a single blade of grass       In my medicine cabinet                         The crane’s legs

the cool breeze                                         the winter fly                      have gotten shorter

finds a home.                            has died of old age.                            in the spring rain.

The Jackson Inn is located at the corner of North DuPont Road and Lancaster Avenue, across the street from the Lancaster Avenue entrance to the Silverbrook Cemetery and facing the large sculpture on the corner of North DuPont Road that fronts the Cab Calloway School for the Performing Arts (the old Wilmington High School).  There will be the usual $5 cover, which gifts the featured readers. Free parking is available in the parking lot that surrounds the Inn. The food is tasty and reasonably priced!   NOTE:  The Jackson Inn holds a tavern license, and while it serves food, it is restricted to the limitations of a tavern for serving alcohol. That means Second Saturday attendees MUST BE 21 or older to attend readings at the Jackson Inn.

 

Hope to see you there!
