West Chester Story Slam (NEW VENUE)

  • January 8, 2013 · 7:00 PM

Philly Suburbs Dining Out Group members have been staunch supporters and participants in the Story Slam and even though WC Story Slam will now have a cover fee, it's a great night out and a great value - here are the details for the SIDEBAR venue

Tickets at both venues are $8 with advance purchase or $10 night of show.

You MUST purchase your ticket ONLINE to attend



Jim Breslin of West Chester Story Slam is introducing some changes - in order to continue moving our storytelling community forward, there are three key changes for the 2013 season. First – the West Chester Story Slam is returning to the borough of West Chester. Second – and launching a second monthly event, the Delco Story Slam, in nearby Newtown Square. Finally, instead of “passing the hat,” the story slams will now be ticketed events. We’re encouraging you to reserve your tickets before the day of the slam as space is limited.


Here’s details on each of the changes:

Returning to West Chester
Our 2013 season will be held at Side Bar and Restaurant, which is well known for having the most extensive craft beer list in the borough. The second floor of Side Bar & Restaurant hosts live music several nights each week. Long-time local residents may remember when the space was Vincent’s, which was known for their jazz and blues acts. At this venue, we will have 60 reserved seats and standing room for approximately 25 more in the bar area.

    Hi Mark - On a typical night, we hear 10 stories at the Story Slam. We put names in a hat and pull them. Many people come and never tell stories but we love to hear from first-time storytellers! The Story Slam only has six seats left so I hope everyone has gone online and reserved their ticket. Thanks!

    Are all attendees required/requested to tell stories or is spectating ok too? I've never been and am intrigued, but would probably like to check one out before participating on the story end.
