August Events

10 Aug

August 2015 Events (…including a NEW event!)


Tuesday, August 11 @ The Ale House (Troy)
Hosted by Abby Lublin
7:30 – 9:30 pm
680 River Street
Theme: “Blood, Sweat, & Tears”

“What goes up, must come down. Spinning wheel…”  (There’s a musical ear worm for you.)

Alright, alright.  70’s jazz-rock aside, to hustle is the human condition.  Sometimes our efforts manifest in various liquids and bodily functions.  Tell about a time you hustled, struggled, or generally let it alllll out.

THIS TUESDAY.  (Yep, tomorrow.)


Monday, August 17 The Olde English Pub (Albany)
Hosted by Gregor Wynnyczuk
7:30 – 9:30 pm
25 Quackenbush Square
Theme: “Crisis Situation”

You didn’t know how you were going to react, but then you were in it.
And you had to deal.

But whether you did well or did poorly, how that crisis went down is almost always story-worthy.

So come down to share your own summer blockbusters of epic and not-so-epic proportions.


**NEW STORYTELLING EVENT!**  …’cross the border in Vermont!

Wednesday, August 19 @ South Street Cafe (Bennington, VT)
Hosted by Forest Byrd
7:30 – 9:30 pm  (Arrive by 7:00 for a seat)
105 South Street
Theme: “On the Run”

Are you a runner? Running is not only exercise. Maybe it’s the only way to escape, or maybe being part of a family household and keeping a full time job keep you running. Maybe it’s the law you’re running from (aliases ok) or tricky relationships. Interpretation is up to you. We’ve all needed to run for one reason or another.

Bring your stories to the South Street Cafe in beautiful downtown Bennington and have a delicious drink and eat. You deserve it after all of the running you do.


Share widely.

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.
