Despite the show not starting at it's start time, the band was FABULOUS! What an awesome treat of live Latin Jazz music. Each performer was stellar in their own right. No need to pay over $100 bucks at the blue note - the Nuyorican Poets Café is the way to go for great live music!

Customer service was completely not present. The ticket indicatedted that the show started at 3:30pm but we were not allowed into the venue until 3:45pm. Like many others we stood on line in the blazing sun for over and hour! Once inside, they had NO reservation for me and I was promised a T-shirt that too was not forthcoming, since there was NO record. I was allowed access since I had a physical copy of the confirmation email. The show was the only saving grace!

Great night out! Nuyorican provided great poetry, great music and lots of laughs. It was a little tricky at first attempting to get in with the Groupon - they said even Groupon reservation holders had to wait on the "walk in" line (which stretches to the end of the block) as opposed to the reservation/VIP line (shorter and THE only way you will get a seat) but after much persistence (voucher and evidence of emails) we were let in early. Groupon should make sure the Cafe is honoring the vouchers as reservations because there was definitely confusion in that area. Once in, we had a fantastic time.

The artists were awesome. The place itself is a death trap. Its dirty and unorganized.
