“The Great Outdoors” @ Olde English Pub

17 Dec

MONDAY, December 19 for Round 2 in Albany.

7 pm at the Olde English Pub.  (683 Broadway.  Quackenbush Square.  Quaint place with red door.)

Plummeting temperatures and an aversion to all things holiday-themed means the theme is:

“The Great Outdoors.”


**UPDATE.  Flash Nonfiction PROMPT:

“What advice would you give a first-time camper?”


The Olde English Pub, as befits its name, features an amazing beer selection and the best fish ‘n’ chips (this ain’t Ted’s Fish Fry) and Shepherd’s pie around town.  …and on Monday, the OEP really features your stories.

Arrive early to ensure a seat at a table if you’re ordering dinner. Arrive early to ensure a seat, period.

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 19th, feel free to share your tale (concisely) here.

See you Monday!  Spread word(s) widely.
