Turtle Boy Tours – Dirty Gerund at Ralph’s Rock Diner

What are you doing Monday night?

If you’re looking for something fun and different, go to Ralph’s Rock Diner for the Dirty Gerund poetry show.

Dirty Gerund – Purveyors of the Finest Ruckus.

Gold statue of a boy draped in a string of lightsThe Dirty Gerund, hosted by Alex Charalambides and Nicholas Earl Davis, is a high energy event with music, art, open mic and great local and guest poets.

The Ruckus starts every Monday night at 9pm at Ralph’s Rock Diner and lastsĀ  (according to their site), “until we run outta words”. Make sure you check dirtygerund.com for details about guest poets and any special treats they have planned. And, when the weather is nice, they move the show outside to the patio.

The venue is a bar so it’s 21 plus. If you haven’t been, Ralph’s is an experience on its own and not to be missed.

Ralph’s is also known for having great food. Nicholas Earl Davis and I agree that you can’t go wrong with the burgers or the chili there. We suggest that you go to Ralph’s early, get dinner and then grab a drink and watch the show.

Other Food Suggestions

Some other good options for dinner in the area are Thai Time, The Boynton, or The Fix (call for reservations). If you’re not in the mood for dinner, stop at WooBerry Ice Cream and Frozen Yogurt for dessert instead.

Turtle Boy Tours – The Mural Edition

I’ve created a map and information to help you take a self-guided walking tour of the Pow! Wow! Worcester, 2016 murals.

This map shows the locations of the largest murals done during the Pow! Wow! Worcester festival but be on the lookout for smaller pieces of work and a few pre-existing works.

Click the icons on the map for additional information, links and photos. Links to the artists’ websites and Instagrams are listed after the image gallery and within the map.
