Grolier Poetry Shop
6 Plympton St.
This very special event features poets Mahmood-Karimi-Hakak and Bill Wolack who will read to the gentle accompaniment of musician Srinivas Reddy. Reddy will perform “a unique combination of Persian Love Poetry and Hindustani ragas that will feature the ghazals of Hafez performed in both Persian and English.”


Sh*t-faced Shakespeare
7:30 p.m., $15-$25
2 Arrow St.
Whether you know the bard intimately or you still have nightmares about reading aloud in English class, this night is sure to be interesting. One member of the cast, chosen at the beginning of the show, will get wasted while you watch them stumble through an abridged Shakespearean play. Don’t worry: There’ll be drinks for you, too.
