Our fifth season is off and running, and what a fun night it was. The January Story Slam was themed "Firsts," and we heard twelve stories on the night. When it was all over, we had our own first - a three way tie! photo-50Jane Butler, Tim Megaw, and Marty Hoban each won a slot in our November Grand Slam. Jane told a story about how sex education differs from generation to generation, Tim detailed an important lesson he learned while running a race, and Marty recalled the time he nearly had a cameo in a major motion picture.

We heard many more remarkable stories on the theme of "Firsts," including a first Thanksgiving dinner, a first Christmas, and the first time attending a meeting of the Red Hat Ladies. We also heard about the first and repeated attempts to make babies, first time facing down the barrel of a gun, first time being published, first time cursing and flying, and how the first time having cable TV led to being on a famous game show.

Our next Story Slam is February 11th and is themed "Curiosity!" Tickets are available now by clicking HERE.
