Yes, on THE FIRST THURSDAY OF EVERY MONTH you get to come over to the Monkey House in Berkeley, to toss back a few and hear some harrowing true tales that will make your own life seem almost ...normal. (Okay, your life will never seem normal, but you’ll be comforted to learn it’s not just you who has Madame Weirdness forever tugging at your sleeve.) Bawdy, tawdry, rowdy, remorseful, funny, touching, tender, or sad - all stories are welcome as long as they are at least 94% true. This month we feature:
Joe Garrido
Steven Emerson
Marc Mowrey
Dave Lungren
Susie Davis
Jo Streit
Barbara Saunders

Plus one “guest teller” selected from the audience!

LET US KNOW IF YOU HAVE A STORY TO SHARE FOR THE JULY 3 EDITION OF "THAT REALLY HAPPENED???"
Guidelines:
·      It's a story (not a rant, philosophical statement, poem)
·      It's a true story from the teller's own life.
·      10 minute maximum length.
We prefer that stories be shared without a script or notes, but we can make exceptions. Our tellers range from first-timers to professionals, from stand-and-talk types to full-blown dramatic presenteurs. With your consent. we’ll record you performance and give you a professional quality recording. 

Feel free to bring your own beverages! (The Monkey House does not sell any type of refreshments. We will provide openers, ice and cups.) MOre about The Monkey House at www.themonkeyhouse.org
