Curators/Hosts of Poets and Pints
Tony Plocido started as an open mic'er at Poets & Pints. His girlfriend, at the time, found the event on Facebook and told him about it. He decided to go and loved it. He then got asked be a feature for the May 2016 show. After that he started communicating with David Bayliss about creating a website for Poets & Pints. Tony created the website and is still the person who updates the website (including this blurb here).
David asked Tony to take over the show after the 4th Anniversary show, which takes place in February 2019. He agreed and that brings us to the present.
Tony is the current Curator and Host of Poets & Pints as of March 2019.
Trinity started as the official "Number 2"... no ... Assistant ... no ... Badass Co-Curator/Boss in July 2020. She is starting out by helping make our Social Media(s) better looking. She's also cleaning up the email mess that Tony has curated (Tony is typing this).
Anyway, she'll continue to get more involved. We will add things to this as she does. We (again just Tony) can't wait to see all the ways she can help make Poets & Pints the best damned Poetry show this side of the Milky Way.
David Bayliss had been the chief Host and Curator of Poets & Pints from its inception in February 2015 through the February 2019 show. There is more to the story (see the home page for more information). He is stepped down and handed the reins over to Tony Plocido starting with the March 2019 show. He will still be involved and consulted. The decision to step down is based solely on life getting a bit too busy for this to be a focus.
