Dec. 13: “Gettin’ Busted” at the Ale House

29 Nov

Caught? Almost caught? Story of full-frontal red-handedness?

Join us on Tuesday, December 13 at the Ale House in Troy, NY for another evening of public storytelling.

7:30 pm. 680 River Street.
Arrive early to ensure a seat at a table if you’re ordering dinner. Arrive early to ensure a seat period.

Same rules:
– MC (me) will collect names of volunteer tellers, raconteurs, hams, and intrepid first-timers before we begin
– Tellers have 5 minutes to tell a true story (truth validated only by you)
– No notes
– No props

In a new feature, as we debut the Front Parlor Series web site (Woo-hoo!), you may throw your name in the can, digitally, by commenting on this post that you would like to tell your tale.

But don’t give it up here! Leave us suspended.

Let the digital queue begin.

If you are unable to participate on the 13th, feel free to share your tale of “gettin’ busted” here. If applicable, be sure the statute of limitations of prosecution for your deed has expired.

I’ll post the prompt for “Flash Nonfiction” on the day prior to the Front Parlor event. If folks want to contribute flash nonfiction here, well, we’ll read those aloud as well.

See you on the 13th!

…and as always, listening is an act of love.
