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,

We traveled down the I-95 corridor to Wilmington for Poetry with a Point at Hummigbirds Lounge in Trolley Square. As with most poetry events we attend in Delaware the place was packed. The evening offered an eclectic mix of original and established works of poetry, fiction,  music and art. The Host Bert Moniz did an excellent job of keeping the evening moving and it was quite enjoyable. Billed as “To Anna and Pablo with Love” the evening did not disappoint.
