If you thought poetry was a tweedy, soporific experience, check out the events organized by the Vancouver Poetry House at Cafe Deux Soleils for a taste of high-speed, high-stakes slamming. The expert performers will blow your socks off with their verbal dexterity, which often bears more than a passing resemblance to rap. Every fourth Monday is also Youth Slam.

The venue itself offers vegetarian eats and local craft beers (down some Storm Brewing ales and you'll soon be considering your own on-stage appearance).
