Swapna Deshpande was the final storyteller at our “Fine Line” Story Slam and her story about karma and the beauty of compassion won her the prized pint glass and earned her a spot in the 2019 Grand Slam!

Our “Fine Line” Story Slam included several hilarious stories covering a wide range of topics including traditions, bartenders who come up with the best lines, and the important difference between being cocky and being competent. Rebecca Thatcher Murcia’s story about receiving a tongue in the mail distinguished between reporting the news and making the news and we laughed as Ashley DeVoe shared a story about an awkward night of blues dancing. Tom Bottiger explained the subtle difference between successfully waterskiing and unsuccessfully waterskiing and Randy Shultz told a tale of walking the fine line between good samaritan and chicken thief.

Thanks to all our storytellers, the judges, and everyone who came out to laugh and applaud. Big thanks to our emcee Donna Talarico who filled in for David Smith.

Our next Story Slam is themed "Pet Peeve" and will be held on Tuesday, February 26th. Save the date and don’t forget to order your tickets online in advance.
