Luke Stromberg won the August Story Slam with his captivating story of how he began his life of crime. Luke engaged the standing room only audience from the first moments, and the crowd of nearly 100 people were spellbound as he recounted his escapades. Video of Luke's story should be uploaded soon so check back. In all, we heard eleven stories on the night. The theme was Metropolis - tales from the Big City. Stories included Beijing, London, Paris, New York City and several stories about Philadelphia. Even Upper Darby was mentioned a few times. We heard about a mugging, a series of scams, multi-cultural differences, punk rock, and shootings. Our next Story Slam is Tuesday, September 11th and the theme will be Career Opportunities! Be sure to reserve a seat in the back room of Victory Brewing Company if you have a group of six or more and come early.
