LIVE POETS’ SOCIETY (article first published : 2005-04-11)

The next meeting of the Live Poets’ Society will take place on April26 at 18h00 at The Quarterdeck, Point Yacht Club (between BAT Centre and Wilson’s Wharf – off Durban’s Esplanade/Victoria Embankment).

The Live Poets’ Society has looking for a new meeting-place for some time and, thanks to LiPS’ member Lylie Musgrave, the venue has been secured in this attractive venue with its splendid views of the harbour.

“The Quarterdeck overlooks the yacht mole and harbour – great outlook, especially at night with the twinkling lights, reflections on the water and Douglas Livingstone’s renowned poem, Steel Giraffes,” says Brett Beiles, organiser of the society. “I wonder if the crane drivers know that’s how poets refer to their workhorses, if you’ll excuse the mixed metaphor.

“Even better, our first gathering there will take place around the time of the next full moon which rises over the bay.”

The LiPS Wednesday meetings clashed with the BAT Centre’s Nowadayz Poets’ get-togethers, so the two groups were not able to interact as they would have liked. Choosing the last Tuesday of every month for the rest of the year provides an excellent solution.

The first parking lot after the clubhouse is reserved for disk holders but the next one is open to LiPS although there’s a “members only” sign. The cost is R5. Alternatively, park on the verge or Esplanade at no cost and more risk. There is (apparently) no need to feed parking meters after 17h00. The entrance to the club faces the bay, so walk around the building to get there. Go up the stairs to the restaurant where you’ll see The Quarterdeck sign on the left.

There’s a cash bar (including tea & coffee) but unfortunately food will be just basic fare (eg, pie & gravy) as the kitchen is closed on Tuesdays. Other club facilities will be open before and after the meeting, such as the sociable Charlie’s Bar and the deck overlooking the bay.

The evening’s theme on April 26 will be (appropriately) To the Point.
