Oak Park Open Mic


Join us December 21 for a very special “Coffeehouse99” double open-mic. That's right, December will be the 99th 3rd Saturday Coffeehouse. It's the time of year to gather together as we did last December and have two rounds of open mic. That’s right--open mic, intermission, MORE open mic. Throughout the evening, given the historic nature of the occasion (#99), anecdotes, stories, vignettes etc will be interspersed throughout the evening as unique experiences are remembered and we pay tribute to those who have passed since we began this venture in creativity back in Spring, 2004. If you haven't been in a while this is a good time to reconnect.


From Chicago take the I-290 exit at Austin, go north to Lake and west to Kenilworth

From the West take the I-290 exit at Harlem Ave, go north to Lake and east to Kenilworth

With the el, exit the Green Line at Oak Park Ave, go north to Lake St; west to Kenilworth.

Parking--there's lots of street parking. Also a village lot at Oak Park & North Blvd., and another at Lake Street & Forest.

Need more info:[masked]-4673.

We hope you can join us, and please forward this note to interested others.

    Small showing this time. I was hoping for a larger showing, but, with the holidays and the weather, that made for a good reason.

      Cool, the audience is pretty friendly. And they have a liquor table as well. So, it's always a blast to watch or jump in and participate in. Just a cool place with cool people.

    Can anyone show and go onstage? Is there a time limit? A theme?

      This one is totally open to anything, magicians, operettas, joke sets, everything. It has a 5 minute limit and anyone can go up. This is a totally open event. I usually get down to this event early, have dinner and walk around town a little - kinda making a short day of it.

      OOOOH, I may have to do this. I will edit a holiday piece I did last year at You're Being Ridiculous.

    I just remembered, there is a $3-5 suggested donation at the open Mic.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
