Linda Silberman won our "That One Time" Story Slam with her story of getting lost in a Mexican desert. Linda took home the prized pint glass and earned a slot in our November Grand Slam!
The night got off to a raucous start with Mitch's story of how his college pranks ended with condom representatives showing up at his school. We heard about "that one time" when college student Nick drank too much and had a run in with the cops. Tony told about his attempt to get rid of a hand grenade while in Vietnam. We heard Cynthia's tale of trying on a wedding dress with "the coven." Marc told us about "that one time" he almost drowned. We heard Doug's story of ending up in a Lancaster-based reality TV show. Erik told about how his attempt to help a co-worker didn't end up as planned. We heard Beth's story of road rage, Laura's tale of being catcalled, and Liz's story about a wild night on the dance floor.
Thanks to all our storytellers, our judges, and the whole audience for your enthusiasm. Also a big thanks to our emcee Donna Talarico!
