Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts

Can I tell a little more about the way I run this crazy thing? If you get up to tell a true story, you win a free drink! Spontaneous Storytelling is a monthly event combining the fun of meeting new people with hearing and telling true stories. How it works: When you come in, you'll be handed an icebreaker game card. The object of the game is to meet each other! You'll seed your mind with stories. After the game, it's time for open-mic stories using themes suggested by the audience. Put your name in the hat, and if you get called up to tell a story, you win a free drink! FREE.
a well attended gathering, BAPC has been around over a third of a century; yup 35 years plus, still going, fairly articulate bunch, some even know a few things about reading and writing; if the weather cooperates the event moves to the great outdoor backyard patio, bordered by Strawberry Creek
Poets of the world Unite!
The only thing you have to lose are your rhymes.
You confuse readers with the wrong number of the month.
In other words, the date is October 3rd not 4th of 2009.
