They also read a few lines written by famous authors that revolve around a particular theme each month. Past themes have included Chicago writers, suicidal authors, war, sex, and banned books.
The Green Mill is sophisticated informality, warm glowing atmosphere steeped in the heady sounds of the early 1930s and 1940s; it was actually patterned after Clark Monroe’s Uptown House in Harlem (as it was during the 1940s). Today, the Green Mill, in keeping with owner Dave Jemilo’s philosophy for a proper mix of down-to-earth friendliness and class, maintains an authenticity of the ‘40s in service, price and music, perfected upon with the steady Sunday night performance of the internationally acclaimed Uptown Poetry Slam which Marc Smith began at the Mill in 1986.
