A nonprofit, multicultural arts organization with a taste for open-mic verse, freeform jazz, and conscientious hip-hop, Nuyorican Poets Cafe was founded in 1973 by a cadre of pioneering Puerto Rican writers, some of whom remain active in the community. Surf the cutting edge of the literary wave with an abundance of regularly scheduled evening events, such as Open Mic Monday (9 p.m.), Thursday's Latin Jazz Jam (9 p.m.), or the weekly throwdown of the Friday Night Slam (10 p.m.), where artists of all mediums test out wrestling moves on one another. Upcoming one-time events include Philip Galinsky's Facebook Comes Alive on January 31 at 7 p.m., and for both regularly scheduled and one-time events, beer, wine, coffee, and soda quench poem-parched throats at the café's bar.

Since its inception, Nuyorican has been a driving force in the art of syllable whittling, producing an award-winning library of poetry and receiving accolades and enthusiastic finger snaps from the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and USA Today.

Though Nuyorican Poets Cafe sometimes features discounts online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
