With available spots declining and word of the event being spread by its representatives, Leche Cafe and Bookstore hopes for a crowded house Friday, Oct. 3, at 7 p.m. for “Open Mic” Night.

For one night, individuals who registered with Leche Cafe for a spot will be able to have a set time up on stage and say whatever it is that they need to say.

The mic-time can range from poetry to comedic acts to narratives and even some singing.

Singing is already something that’s been booked for the event, however.

Along with the open-mic are performances from musical guests, including Bustop Prophet, Bret L. Thompson and AC the PD.

Patrick Jordan, a facilitator of the event, said, “Definitely on a personal note, I’m very excited (and am) looking forward to getting involved with the local artists and working with the awesome staff at Leche.”

The cafe is also promoting its 20 percent discounts for students, as well as new menu items that will be featured over the next months, according to Jordan.

The cafe has been host to kid’s talent shows, art shows, literacy development and comedy nights in the past.

Leche Cafe had a mic-night before back in February. Its promotion this time is through the use of a hash-tag on Twitter: #FirstFriday. It’s to commemorate the start of a new month.

Leche Cafe and Bookstore is located at 11723 Firestone Blvd. in Norwalk.
