If you don't celebrate Christmas or have an Xmas tree, come join us for the tenth annual Nuyorican Poets Cafe GNT Poetry Jam and Open Mic (GNT means "Got No Tree"). Joanna Hoffman hosts the event, which features a performance by Usman Hameedi and an open mic (all art forms welcome). $10.

Usman Hameedi is a Pakistani-American scientist and writer. Cancer biology is his scientific research focus and he investigates how cells determine their fate and sometimes write their own destinies. As a poet, he has performed and coached at both collegiate and national poetry slams. Usman was highlighted on the Huffington Post, Upworthy, and the Story Collider. As an aspiring physician, he hopes to marry his scientific and artistic passions in a career focused on illuminating the rich narratives in health care.
