Front Parlor: Albany postponed until November

28 Oct

Damn you Sandy!!**

Due to supposed impending doom being driven by the inevitable oncoming mass of weather known as an extra-tropical storm (because it will no longer be fueled by the warm waters of the Atlantic but rather by a low pressure system dragging it kicking and screaming inland – don’t say we never taught you anything), we have decided to postpone the rebirth of storytelling at the Olde English Pub in Albany scheduled for tomorrow, Monday, October 29th. We will absolutely reschedule for November, and we’ll send out an update as soon as the date is chosen. Stay dry, and just to be safe call that friend who borrowed your canoe 5 years ago. You might need it! 


** Our apologies to anyone named Sandy

Albany is ON!

October’s Front Parlor Storytelling in Albany:

It’s a go.

Monday, October 29 @ Olde English Pub (Albany)
Hosted by Tim Dawkins
7:30 – 9:30 pm
25 Quackenbush Square
Theme: “Spooked: True Stories About Scary Things”

Via Tim Dawkins:
We’re back on, and just in time for the scariest time of year (and I don’t mean political debate season). Growing up, Halloween was always my least favorite holiday because I hated being scared (and still do). However, as an adult I’ve tried to move past those ridiculous nightmares of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man chasing me down a deserted back alley or the memories of imagined whispers outside my door as I huddled under my covers at night. Now there’s real life, and with real
life comes some really scary stuff! Come on over to the OEP and share a story about a time that you were scared, spooked, frightened, or freaked. I promise we’ll leave the lights on.

* Note: We need to show those folks across the river in Troy that they haven’t cornered the market on gathering in bars and telling stories! Please spread the word far and wide, and bring a friend on the 29th.
Your attendance will determine whether this continues on the Hudson’s left bank.I hope you believe in the shared experience of storytelling as much as I do! See you there.

I vant to suck your…
