Tuesday, April 5

Opening Night of Taboo Tuesday Open Mic at 9:30 p.m. (comedians sign-up at 9 p.m.)

The good ole days are here again.  After an 8-month absence, this popular open mic reopens in a remodeled venue with a great new sound system.  The open mic has got the same heart, but with a classier, sleeker new bod.  It's the way open mic was meant to be with no language or content restrictions.
