A Month Of … The Things We Find

Thanks to all who came out to tonight’s show. We shared stories of fictitious paramours, grocery-store solicitations, and all manner of amorous hijinx. Plus, we selected this month’s task. Here it is: The Things We Find Glue a coin to a sidewalk in a public place. The meaning of “coin”, “sidewalk”, and “glue” are of …

Five Nights at Torajiro

There are a lot of sushi restaurants in Chicago. Torajiro is neither the cheapest nor the highest quality — it’s not even the one I’ve visited most often. However, I remember each and every time I’ve visited the tiny sushi restaurant on Diversey.

Tomorow is A Month Of… Next Stop: Unexpected

A Month Of!

A Month Of… Next: Stop Unexpected.

Aug. 14th we are going to have our second show.

A Month Of is a themed open mic where you get to choose the theme.

What sort of stories can be told for, Next Stop: Unexpected? Our fantastic hosts have some great elevator hijinx to tell you. But the theme is open to all sorts of stories. We want to hear where you take the them!

Do have a crazy public transportation story? Perhaps a friend popped up sometime when you weren’t expecting? Best surprise party ever? Maybe life was taking you down the wrong road, just to plop you in the place you really needed to be. We welcome all of your interpretations.

All month long our hosts and fans have been posting stories for you to read and listen to.

Jennifer Hall felt like this was a pretty great take on Next Stop: Unexpected!

I agreed.

The Best Elevator in My World

This is my middle school.

It has a chapel. Amelia, the girl I used to have a crush on, told me she wants to get married in here.

I believed her. I still do.

It has a grotto. It was a decrepit pool of stagnant water until Andrew cleaned it out.

Now it’s beautiful.

Speaking of pools…

The school’s pool isn’t big, but not many schools have a pool in the basement.

Most other schools most certainly do not have as many statues of the Virgin Mary. You’ve seen three so far.

Here’s a fourth.

We walked by this one four times a week on the way to drive our art and music teachers crazy.

None of the things above was the reason I went back, however.

I went back for the elevator.

It’s the best elevator in my world.

Audrey Fegel Accepts the Invitation to Return!

Last night’s show was one of my all time favorites. Morals, ramblings, themes, craft, spontaneous-extemporaneous, and a not too shabby hosting job from your two stalwart ne’er do wells. (Paradox or contradiction?) If I don’t say so myself–this evening had it all.

It was a full crowd and a ton of great dishes were brought. Our first storyteller, Duo, brought in some amazing and lauded cupcakes, and there were a number of fantastic entrees as well. Thank you to everyone who came, paid, brought food, told stories, and listened last night.

I like to move around as the night progresses and so I picked up some food after Deanna Moffitt’s story and settled in the aisle to listen to Audrey Fegel. She commanded the stage, and as the lights bared down on her we were transported to Forever XXI where she was attacked by an over active imagination, attacked by knowing too much. She threw her bags to the ground, she dropped to her knees, and when everyone rushed to her aid, she realized, she wasn’t actually having a seizure at all.

All this month Audrey can be seen in As You Like it at the (re)discover theater. And next month, you can see her featuring for us at Here’s the Story!
