May’s Front Parlor Events

**Last minute announcement:

Front Parlor – Troy will be at The Hangar on the Hudson (across the street from the Ale House). The Ale House is not finished with kitchen renovations.  You will not be able to get Ale House dinner on Tuesday, May 10.  Plan accordingly!!

Tuesday, May 10 @ The Ale House (Troy)
Hosted by Abby Lublin
7:30 – 9:30 pm
680 River Street
Theme: “It is what it is: Stories (of things) beyond your control”

You know the moment: hands in the air (or heavy at your side, or wildly gesticulating) and a deep sigh of resigned acceptance.  Tell about the challenges, the obstacles, the humor that you encountered on the way to finally, at long last, accepting something for what it is.

See you this Tuesday at the Ale House.

Monday, May 16 The Olde English Pub (Albany)
Hosted by Gregor Wynnyczuk
7:30 – 9:30 pm
25 Quackenbush Square
Theme: “Working”

Most of us need to work for a living. And by many accounts we spend more time at work than we do with our families or friends. For some of us it is just a job, for others a career. But either way, the world of work is often a very different place where strange and interesting things can happen.

Bring your stories from the workplace to this month’s edition of the Albany Front Parlor at the Olde English Pub.  The stories start at 7:30.


Tuesday, May 17 @ Taphouse at Catamount Glass (Bennington, VT)
Hosted by Forest Byrd
Seating starts at 7 pm, Stories at 7:30 pm
309 County St., Bennington, VT 05201
Theme: “Weather”
People often discuss the weather as a way to fill the silence, a way to connect when there is nothing else to say.  Rather than a tactic for avoidance, this month we tackle weather.   Experiences in it or under it in notable ways?  A first kiss in the middle of a blazing rainstorm? Lost a home to a tornado? Come tell a story where Mother Nature features prominently.


Share widely.

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

See you ’round the mic. And as always…

Listening is an act of love.
