The Open Hoot
Open reading at Swizzles, 16 August
We arrived on Queen Street looking for the Dusty Owl "Open Hoot," at Swizzles, and were greeted by K8. We went downstairs, sat down and ordered a beer,
and after preliminaries, including the introduction of the "Object of Desire" by K8, people who had signed
up got up to read.
Some were new, and hadn't
been here or done this before, and were welcomed. Others were
old hands. At
one point a hat was passed by K8, hiding behind a pillar. After everyone had read,
there were readings of
poems written -- by these intrepid folks -- about the Object of Desire. The
"Applause-O-Meter identified the Winner, Nedra, who was presented with the Object itself.
Afterward. we walked back to
find Frederika and we went off to the Market to find dinner.
