To Whom It May Concern:
I'd like to apologize to all our friends & supporters for the "Grandma 
Potty-Mouth" episode at last night's open mic.  After she ignored my polite 
attempt to point out that her act isn’t in keeping with the "family friendly" 
environment at Walden's Coffeehouse, I should have cut her mic and asked her to 
leave the stage.  I didn't because, as my wife says, I'm just "too nice".  

I was, frankly, just dumbfounded by her act and attitude.  In the years I've 
hosted open mics I've never had a mature adult behave that way, especially 
they've been alerted to the venue's content guidelines.  I've never had to 86 a 
75 year-old amateur comedienne before, but I should have on this occasion.  My 
apologies for failing to handle the situation in the way it should have been.  
won't let it happen again.
P.S. Word to the wise: If you've just taken a stand-up comedy class and your 
consists of graphic sexual imagery without a punch line, my open mic is NOT the 
place for you to make your debut.   :)
