Back to Harvey's! But you'd better behave...
Words & Wine, one of Miami's strongest weekly poetry and artist gatherings, is back on at the American Legion following a two-week hiatus. Organizer and founding poet Nikki Rodriguez confirmed that the open microphone is staying put.

"We considered other venues, but in the end, we really wanted to stay at the Legion, because it's such a beautiful location for Words & Wine." Due to sound ordinances, complaints from neighbors, and improper permitting by the Legion, all events were temporarily suspended. Things are now back in order, with a few adjustments.

The Legions will have heightened security making sure no loiterers hang outside in the parking lot. In addition, there will be a strict enforcement of the 18 and over age limit. Sorry kids, you do have to go home, and you can't stay here. Furthermore, the outside patio doors will close sharply at 11 p.m., keeping the sound inside.

And finally, in accordance with the new rules, there will be a strict dress code enforced by steroid-popping men in black sports coats and red ties: all who enter must have a collar, and there are to be no hats or sneakers. Just kidding about the dress code. It's Words & Wine, come on! Nothing's really changing. If anything, the gathering will be a little bit more about words, that is if they want to stay at their current venue. Just don't wake the neighbors.

Words & Wine starts at 8 p.m. tonight at the American Legion's Harvey W. Seeds (6445 NE 7th Ave., Miami). Visit Words & Wine on Facebook.
