I want to begin keeping track of things to do in different cities if you are a like-minded poetry enthusiast. So here are things I have found:
Best bookstore in town? Jackson Street Booksellers in the Old Market, based on a poet's suggestion.
Strange Machine is a poetry reading series curated by Natasha Kessler-Rains.
A unique film theatre: http://www.filmstreams.org/filmstreams_about.asp

1116 Jackson Street
Please let me know of any other things!
