OM Poetry Slam
It's the longest-running slam in Omaha, often featuring 
some of the best performance poets in the nation.
Open mic starts at 7:30 followed by the Slam • Sign up BEFORE 7:30; signup is limited



What is a Poetry Slam? It's competition poetry; meaning humor, politics, enlightenment,
sex, entertainment masquerading as literature, literature masquerading as entertainment.
Poets read, then judges chosen from the audience flash Olympic-style scoring (ranging from 1 to 10) based on both the writing and performance of the poem.  This goes on for 3 rounds to determine somebody with a high score that we can declare as the winner. In truth, everyone who adds to the evening should be considered a winner, but since we only have one Golden Monkey trophy, we have to figure out some way to give it out.

Historic Flag Presentation and Fundraiser for film,
48 Stars: A Journey of Our Father’s Flag

A special event and fundraiser for a film project with a display of historic flags.
"48 Flags" is a tribute and patriotic journey to preserve the memories of the men and women who have served this country and its continued fight for freedom and liberty, a stunning and beautiful visual journey of our country's history. 
The unique history of one flag from 1870, is that it is alleged that General Winfield Scott Hancock, a famous union war general commanded by Abraham Lincoln and presidential candidate himself, stood in front of this flag as he campaigned for the US Presidency in 1880, against James A. Garfield.
Project director, Shawn M. Concannon will present an overview of the beginnings and ambitions of this project. 

All proceeds will go to the 48 Stars project. Please visit us at 48stars.org for further information and updates. The creative team is excited to share this remark-able journey. Seating for this event is limited to 90.

PLEASE RSVP 402-399-2020.
