Got a hankerin' for some poetry and performance by local Chicago up-and-comers? Then stop by the Black Rock Bar at Damen and Addision at 8pm today and join the Reconstruction Room. There's no admission -- save the price of a beer or two. Tonight's activities are heavy on the performance when local Performing Arts Chicago alums Hermit Arts collaborate with the Rec-Roomers. More info in Slowdown.
