CHICAGO – Less than two years ago, Women of the Now (WOTN) Founder and filmmaker Layne Marie Williams brought her Philadelphia organization to Chicago, when she moved here to evolve her career. As Woman of the Now has grown in its new home, the group has sponsored many happenings and events, the latest of which is “Poerotica,” subtitled “Liquor, Lingerie and Love Languages.” The event will take place at Reunion Chicago on Saturday, August 19th, 2017 at 8pm (details below).

The event is sponsored by WOTN and “A g Thing” (a creative agency in Chicago that works as a catalyst to bring unsung voices forward to a broader community) and is described as an “…intimate and sensual night celebrating women of color. Featuring musical performances, burlesque dancers, expert panelists, and the premiere of The Poerotica Memoirs – a compilation of poetry and short stories performed by local talent.” The event will be a dress-up party as well, as attendees are asked to wear their favorite lingerie or nighttime garb… with all orientations of gender invited. Beer will be provided by Begyle Brewing, with signature cocktails also available.

HollywoodChicago.com reached out to WOTN representative Aimy Tien, to provide some context and background to the event, and in the following podcast she talks about all the issues associated with it. WARNING: For some reason, Aimy and I chose the world’s loudest Starbucks for this interview, so it’s a bit noisy but worth it.


Women of the Now and “A g Thing” presents “Poerotica: Liquor, Lingerie and Love Languages,” taking place on Saturday, August 19th – starting at 8pm – at Reunion Chicago, 2557 North Avenue, Chicago. For more information, and to purchase tickets, click here.

  • Bobby Pin Girls

    CHICAGO – The “breeder years” are difficult on everyone, as the biological imperative becomes overwhelming and the couplings that result yield both discovery and misadventure. Nothing Without a Company’s new play “Bobby Pin Girls” highlight two such Millennial women, roommates who are having man trouble, although the argument can be made that it’s eternally “boy trouble.” The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Chicago Mosaic School through December 3rd, 2017.

  • Transformers 5 front

    CHICAGO – Knock me over with a feather kids, but I enjoyed “Transformers: The Last Knight.” Maybe it was in comparison to the others or maybe director Michael Bay has beaten me into submission, but this one had the right story elements and casting to make it work, with exceptions of course. It’s goofiness is its charm, and it was released on Blu-Ray/DVD on September 26th, 2017 (Digital HD already available).
