Tom Bottiger took home the prized pint glass tonight with his story of wearing a unique Halloween costume for a party at a legendary local bar. The theme of the night was Risk! Tom's win earned him a slot in the 2016 West Chester Story Slam Grand Slam, which will take place at the Chester County Historical Society on Tuesday, November 1st.

Our Risk stories tonight brought tears of laughter and and made us cringe. We heard about visiting a biker bar in South Carolina, escapades in France, sneaking into a World Series Game, getting away with daytime drinking as a kid, traveling through Russia, experiencing the joy of witnessing a brother's pain, jumping off of buildings that are too high to impress a girl, and having a bathing suit stolen while in a shower.

Our next Story Slam is themed "WTF?" and will be held on Tuesday, October 11th. Tickets can be ordered by clicking HERE
