Midweek stress already driving you insane? Why not park yourself at one of OC's favorite bohemian rest stops? Once again, the Gypsy Den hosts Factory Readings, a finger-snapping session of spoken word and poetry. Order up a bowl of vegetarian chili with a side of Zen in the company of a handful of local poets. Leigh White, Shawn Turi and host Lee Mallory are sure to deliver some delectable food for thought. And if that isn't enough, you get the bittersweet acoustic stylings of Kevin Sandbloom for dessert. A heaping helping of live art always does a body good. And what else do you have to do on a Tuesday night? That's right-nothing .
