Holiday Show and Year End Prize!

Hello beautiful Here’sthestorians! We are proud and pleased to announce our very first year-end holiday show! Dan and I have put a lot of work into dreaming this up for you, and think it’s going to be a really special night.

This show’s format will be different from usual, as we’ll be featuring 100% Audience Favorite tellers from the course of the year. There will be no walk-up slots; just your favorite Chicago tellers, gracing you with 8-minutes of their storytelling magic. As always, there will be a potluck dinner (we are hoping grand holiday feast style!) and great friends and community. The event is casual as ever, but if you’d like to get a little fancy, or costume it up, please do!

March 4th Features Feature!

Hi friends! We’re looking forward to our big show on March 4th, and hope that you are, too. I realized this morning that this marks the very last show of Here’s the Story’s first year of life. Wow. It is amazing to think about all the wonderful people we have met, and all the friends that have been made through this event in one year. It has also been an honor to have been part of fostering the vibrant trend of storytelling in Chicago. We set out to offer the great people who populate Chicago’s many creative communities, a space to get to know and be inspired by one another, and looking back it kinda feels like we have done some of that! I am so happy for all of you who know each other now… I am happy for the time we’ve gotten to spend listening to each other… and I am happy that we have all made something that exists for no other purpose than to share and share alike. If you haven’t had a chance to join us yet, and have been meaning to make it out, please do. I think you’ll be happy to find the warm thing that is growing here.

Congratulations Frank Sjodin

Oh what a wonderful show last night. Thanks everyone for coming and thanks to Frank Sjodin, for accepting the invitation to come back next month. We heard stories from all over, some old Appalachian tales, some that happened just the weekend prior, and a story that never really happened.

I admit to being biased but I personally loved them all. For those who couldn’t make it, I suspect the podcast will be up sometime tomorrow for everyone to check out.

Thanks so much for all the fine food, the splendid company, and I’m super excited to see you all again.
