Maybe you’re a regular attendee, or maybe you’ve only been once. Maybe you’ve never experienced a live storytelling event, and you’re curious. Whatever category you fall into, this is your chance to have the Front Parlor experience on both sides of the Hudson River two days in a row! Can you handle it?!

Join host Tim Dawkins tonight in downtown Albany starting at 7:30 PM at The Olde English Pub at 25 Quackenbush Square (just one block away from the Palace Theater)  for “A Family Affair: Stories about the important people in our lives (biological or not).”

Tomorrow night head on over to The Ale House at 680 River St. in Troy to join host Abby Lublin, the person who got this ball rolling in our area so many months ago, starting at 7:30 PM for “Pooped (interpret as you will).”

Remember, these events depend on you. Without an audience, live storytelling is just some weird guy standing in front of a microphone talking to himself. So bundle up, hop in your preferred form of personal transportation, and join us on this train as it leaves the station. Telling a story is not required. We like good listeners, too! And bring friend. We’re continually trying to grow these events (especially Albany), and you are key in getting the word out.

We hope to see you there. You never know who you’ll meet! I mean really….what else do you have to do on a Monday or Tuesday night in November?

Back-to-Back Front Parlor Nights!

November’s Front Parlor Storytelling:

We’re kicking off the winter season with a storytelling blitz!

**PLEASE NOTE: Front Parlor (Troy) will be the THIRD Tuesday this month.  (Sorry, scheduling conflict.)

Monday, November 19 @ The Olde English Pub (Albany)
Hosted by Tim Dawkins
7:30 – 9:30 pm
25 Quackenbush Square
Theme: A Family Affair

It’s beginning to look a lot like… that time of year when we break bread (and pie. Lots of pie) with those who know us best. We can pick our friends, we can pick our noses, but we can’t pick our family. Or can we? Come on down to Quackenbush Square and share your story at the Olde English Pub. No wet willies, we promise!

Remember – spread the word far and wide. We’re trying to grow our monthly Albany event, and only you make this happen! See you there.

Tuesday, November 20 @ The Ale House (Troy)
Hosted by Abby Lublin
7:30 – 9:30 pm
680 River Street
Theme: “Pooped”

We seem to be on a bodily functions flow (groan) these days.  The thing is, what could be more universally human?!  If egestion makes you squeamish, consider other interpretations.  (“Pooped out?!”)


Share widely.

If you’d like to throw your name in the can to tell a story, and you know you’ll be a lil’ late, post a comment here.

See you ’round the mic. And as always…

Listening is an act of love.
