What we're about

Brand New Meetup! For creative, fun-loving, outgoing people who want to get off their phones and actually meet people in real life. Does not require hiking shoes! For people who want more connection and authenticity in their lives. Spontaneous Storytelling is a unique interactive event that combines the fun of meeting new people with hearing and telling true stories. Our events are low-cost, and designed to make it easy to meet everyone in the bar with our fun icebreaker game. If you play, you will meet a lot of people although it is optional. The main activity after the icebreaker is telling and hearing true, five-minute stories inspired by themes suggested from the audience, sort of like The Moth. Storytelling is optional; many people just come to listen and laugh. But telling a true story from your life is a lot of fun, and you might win a free drink just for sharing it!

Then it's time for storytelling. Put your name in the hat for a chance to tell a true, 5-minute story from your own life. Four lucky storytellers will win free drink tickets just for telling their true story! The Rules: no reading or notes allowed; stories must be true, about you, and 5 minutes or less. We'll have a volunteer timer to help you stick to the time limit. Playing the social game is optional. Telling a true story on stage is optional. Having fun is not optional!!
