Whisky and Poetry Salon

Leave a comment

It doesn’t get better than this!

In November 2012, Kim Ohanneson & Karolyn Kiisel of Literary Libations, and Johnnie “theScot” Mundell, “ambassador” for Morrison-Bowmore Scotch, inaugurated the Whisky & Poetry Salon at the B Black Penthouse in DTLA (downtown Los Angeles).
Our goal has been to trade guests “whisky for their words”, to create an intimate literary and poetic community, to share the work of significant but under-exposed poets from the Los Angeles community and beyond, and, of course, to drink some really top-drawer scotch!
Every two months, Salon attendees bring a poem, original or not, and read it in a candlelit loft surrounded by 30-40 whisky and poetry aficionados. In return, they get a flight of fine whiskies with tasting notes and history.

If you live in Los Angeles (or want to go there) and wish to attend, you can find the information here.

I was born in Croatia, at that time Yugoslavia. My family moved to the US when I was very young, but I still treasure the memories of my grandfather teaching me how to protect myself against the "evil eye," my grandmother shopping early every morning, at the open air market, to buy the freshest vegetables for the day's meals, and the traditions that were the underpinnings of our society. Someone once noted that "For all of us that want to move forward, there are a very few that want to keep the old methods of production, traditions and crafts alive." I am a fellow traveler with those who value the old traditions and folk wisdom. I believe the knowledge they possess can contribute significantly to our efforts to build a more sustainable world; one that values the individual over the corporation, conservation over growth and happiness over wealth.
