When it's time for things to end, we should let them go with dignity and accept the finality of it all. But where's the fun in that? It's more enjoyable to go out with a bang, right? To help a not-long-for-this-Earth local reading series finish up on a high note, get to Duff's Restaurant (392 North Euclid Avenue; 314-361-0522) by 7 p.m. The Get Born series, which has offered poetry readings around town for a couple of years now, is calling it quits, and for the last event, several poets and musicians — including founder Joseph Sulier, Mathieu Paul and Larva Loo — take part in saying goodbye. Join them at the mic with a work of your own, if you're one of the first five people to sign up to read. Otherwise, spread thanks, cheer and well wishes from the other side of the microphone, which ought to be just as much fun.
