Bodies were an underlying theme in the 114th edition of Tuesday Funk on March 6. From abuse to disuse to idolization to reproduction, we heard it all in the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf.

Award-winning author Tony Romano started us off with an excerpt from his novel, Where My Body Ends and the World Begins. Next, David Daskal read an essay about Barbra Streisand's cloned dogs and their implications for humanity, then Jasmine Davila shared a story about attending actor James "Spike" Marsters' 50th birthday party with dozens of superfans.

After a break to refill our glasses, cohost Andrew Huff read a couple of his topical haiku, and Sahar Mustafah read a story about love and shisha. Finally, Billy Lombardo read part of an unpublished novel about unexpected childhood memories.

Tuesday Funk will be back at Hopleaf on Tuesday, April 3, and we hope you'll join us as we feature readings by Tracy Harford-Porter, Beyza Ozer, Nestor Gomez, Kelly Swails and Ruben Quesada. See you there!
