About 50 people showed up at the Mykonos for our 4th London Open Mic Poetry Night. It wasn't quite packed but it sure was nice and full.
And here I had convinced myself it was going to be a disaster, for one reason or another - the weather, the holidays, university closed, and so on - and I was pretty sure that even if anyone did show up the terrace would be too cold.
But no. People just kept coming in, and the terrace was as hot as anyone could want (actually they had to turn it down), the music was incredible, the poetry awesome, and everybody had a wonderful evening. I even got to read at the open mic myself. As did Dawna, who deserved it after her great hosting.
All in all, not quite the downer I was prepared for.
