Perhaps never in modern history have pork sandwiches and beer been paired with lingerie and empowering poetry performances, but then again, Baubo’s Garden isn’t your run-of-the-mill shop. On Wednesday, Oct. 14 from 7-9:30 p.m., Baubo’s Garden, 7234 Madison, Forest Park, will offer discounted panties while four young Chicago poets share their take on love and sex. Participants will also be treated to sandwiches from Skrine Chops, as well as tasty beer from Marion Street Cheese Market.

The event is $25 a person, and registering for the event can be done online, www.baubosgarden.com, or over the phone.
