Tuesday, January 13 @ The Ale House (Troy)
Hosted by Abby Lublin
7:30 – 9:30 pm
680 River Street
Theme: “Takin’ Care of Business”
Every day. Every way.
Turn your daily slogging into story fodder.
Did you work a job that required extra grit? An oddity of your commute? Adventures in entrepreneurship? Or perhaps the theme reminds you of a particular time you did what needed doing, the the doing made an impact. (Revenge, anyone?) …and you’re feeling randy, yep, feel free to share a tale about that business too.
Monday, January 19 (MLK, Jr. Day) @ The Olde English Pub (Albany)
Hosted by Gregor Wynnyczuk
7:30 – 9:30 pm
25 Quackenbush Square
Theme: “My First Time”
When we get more practiced at something we get more comfortable – the muscle memory takes over and we don’t need to think as much. But when we do something new for the first time – that’s when we are really in the moment. Think about those moments, and the stories around them. What was it like to be a beginner?
Given that stories need a beginning, middle and an end this is a great opportunity to think about how you were before, as compared to how you are now.
If you’d like to throw your name in the can to tell a story, and you know you’ll be a lil’ late, post a comment here.
See you ’round the mic. And as always…
Listening is an act of love.
