Pat Carmody  was the winner of our “Wake Up Call” Story Slam. Pat explained that he’s not a morning person and told the story of having to get his children around for school - an activity he didn’t really enjoy until hearing one day when dropping off his son’s  they heard the song “Enjoy Every Sandwich” by Warren Zevon on the radio. Pat’s story won him the prized pint glass and earned him a spot in the 2019 Grand Slam!

Our “Wake Up Call” Story Slam started off with our emcee for the night, Melissa Snavely, who told a story about the importance of being fearless. Donna Talarico-Beerman told us about how a milestone birthday culminated in a wake up call for her.
