I couldn't be more excited for November 3rd if I tried. If I squeezed my eyes shut and imagined the most perfect s'more or a single butterfly dancing on the wind. I'm super thrilled to be involved in this project.

So for those who may not know, I'm lucky to be one host of this potluck and storytelling event, Here's the Story.

How does it work?

If you've never made it out to one of our potlucks before, we will have five featured storytellers and five walk up tellers, plenty of food, and lots of fun. We focus on embodied storytelling, so the tales range the gamuts provided by both fiction and non fiction. What we look for are voices with stories that deserve an audience. People who know their stories so well they can tell them extemporaneously with their full self.

You'll see what we mean. If you've been to other storytelling events, I think you'll particularly appreciate the subtle differences in vibe the evening creates.

The crowd is super crazy friendly, and if you come I encourage you to seek me out. I'll be the kid with blue hair. Tell me you're from this meetup and I'll introduce you to other meetup people and make sure you get a good seat. Mingling is a big key to Here's the Story.

We get a strong showing from a couple of meetup groups, reddit, and couch surfing. (I also know a couple of OKCupid kids that like to make this their first date event.)

If you have any questions, post them, I'd love to answer them.

We will be posting the five features later this month on our website, and they're going to be awesome.

Hope to meet a lot of you!

Edit for alcohol policy:
Stage 773 has a full bar and a licensed bartender so we can't allow outside alcohol into the show.

    i'm confused... the website says the next show is on Dec 1st (not 11/24). Can you confirm?

    I don't have editable access to this anymore for some reason. I will not be at this show. Information about this show can be found at Heresthestorychicago.com

    Instead I will be hosting a show on the 4th Sunday of the Month at Stage 773. That's: Sept. 22nd, Oct 27th, Nov 24th, Dec 22nd

    I'd love it if you came to that.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
