Would you like a little haute culture with that martini? No? How about some stand-up comedy or slam poetry? Hump Day is now Local Talent Day thanks to Word Wednesdays open mic nights at the V Bar (19 E. Kiowa St.). Every Wednesday, poets, singers, comedians and actors are invited to sign up before 8 p.m., when host Patrick James opens the show. Meanwhile, the audience benefits from an extended happy hour, including $3 shots and the chance to call a coin toss and get any drink for a dollar. Call or text 313-0683 for more information, or search "Word Wednesdays at V Bar" on Facebook, where 190 people like it already. — Claire Swinford
