This long-running Irish pub open mic in Berkeley is a heralded favorite amongst East Bay locals. Host Joan Pez leads the open mic every Tuesday night (sign up at 7:30pm), while Jaz Sufi hosts the Berkeley Poetry Slam every Wednesday night. Warm and just intimate enough, The Starry Plough hosts live shows every night alongside big servings of comfort foods and, of course, pints abound.
