Great food and poetry, all served at the same place? Poetry and spoken word group, Tongue and Groove, announces monthly residency at Culver City’s Muddy Leek.

Beginning Wednesday, March 20 and every third Wednesday of the month to follow, LA’s Tongue & Groove poetry collective will be spreading the spoken word at Muddy Leek. For $20, with 25% of proceeds being donated to Tongue & Groove, guests can soak up a dose of literary refinement in the form of short fiction, personal essays, poetry, and music while enjoying a glass of wine or a beer alongside a gourmet grilled cheese from Chef Whitney Flood. The regular menu will be available as well for those craving a little something extra.

Featured presenters will include:

· Melinda Hill, comedienne and co-host of “Eat My Podcast”

· J. Ryan Stradal, co-producer of “Hot Dish” and Supervising Producer on A&E’s series “Storage Wars: Texas”

Muddy Leek is a new brick-n-mortar, made-from-scratch eatery from celebrated catering couple, Chef Whitney Flood and Julie Retzlaff of Bon Mélange Catering. Born from years of entertaining experience and a series of underground dinners, Muddy Leek is the couple’s first independent restaurant. Adjacent to the heart of downtown Culver City’s celebrated Helm’s Bakery, Muddy Leek is a true neighborhood destination serving warm and inviting farm-to-table fare in an airy and artistic setting that complements the laid-back vibe of its gracious owners. Committed to creating everything from breads to basics in-house, Muddy Leek makes everything from scratch using only the best and brightest of seasonal ingredients sourced from local farms and vendors.

Produced by Conrad Romo, Tongue & Groove features up-and-coming talent in a literary variety show, ranging from music to short fiction, essays, poetry and spoken word from both published and unpublished authors. For more information, visit
