Tonight, Tonight, Tonight…

Ok, forgive the Phil Collins (I do kinda love him though… guilty pleasures!), but I am super psyched for tonight’s Slam at World Cafe Live.


The details… World Cafe Live, 3025 Walnut St. Doors at 7:30, Slam starts at 8:30. Tickets are $10 at the door, $8 for members. The theme is Home for the Holidays and our host is David Sweeny. Come hungry – World Cafe Live will be serving food from their awesome menu. Come thirsty – we’ll have $3 Yuengling draft specials.


And here is a final, double-header FlashSlam. I actually met Rose and Brooke last night randomly at a dinner party. I recognized Rose, having just watched her story on strange coincidences last week by chance. After talking to her for about 5 seconds, I asked, “Um, this is strange, but have you ever told a story at a First Person StorySlam?” The answer was yes. “Yeah, cause I’m their new Marketing Coordinator.” Not only that, her friend, Brooke has also told a story. There were four people at this dinner party. Two of them were First Person Storytellers. Now THAT is a strange coincidence.


Hopefully this won’t embarrass my new friends too much, but I have to share their stories today.


Rose reveals her strange coincidence…





Brooke thought she was alone… she was wrong…
