Just in time for National Poetry Month - that's April - comes what has to be a truly unique, and possibly crazy, poetry experience. "Moonrise at Stiltsville: A Literary Evening" involves some of South Florida's best-known poets - Mia Leonin, Campbell McGrath, Jesse Millner and Michael Hettich - reading under what presumably will be moonlight at one of the seven remaining Stiltsville houses.
You arrive by boat, naturally, which departs from Shake-a-Leg Marina, 2620 South Bayshore Drive in the Grove, at 7 p.m. on April 18. Tickets are a whopping $75 and must be purchased by April 15, but listen, if you've never been to Stiltsville, you might want to get out there before the next hurricane washes these last few homes away. You get a great view of the Miami skyline, too. The boats are expected to return around 10:30 p.m.
