Good Luck Mike!

Repping Philly at the National StorySlam THIS Sunday is Mike McCarry, hitting the road late tonight to start the drive to Chicago with at least one stop in lovely Toledo, OH along the way. Thanks to your support we were able to put $250 in Mike’s pocket for his journey! Stay tuned to the First Person blog all weekend for updates from Mike as he meets and competes with storytellers from Boston, Portland, the Twin Cities, Baltimore, DC, Anderson (South Carolina), San Francisco and (of course!) Chicago. There is no theme for Sunday’s Slam, so anything goes. TIme Out Chicago has the background on this awesome new addition to the national storytelling scene.

Send Mike your good vibes in the comments!!!
