>> Want to see our Top Picks for this week instead?
Awaken Cafe | 1429 Broadway, Oakland, CA 94612
What happens when you combine local public radio, a story slam, and a grilled cheese cookoff? A recipe for a good time. KALW 91.7FM is bringing you a live menu of food-themed tales from professional storytellers and local residents. It’s part of KALW’s new community storytelling project, Hear Here: A Pop-Up Radio Project.
Free to the public, but get there early to get a seat! Doors open at 6:30pm.
Be sure to stay for the evening’s three acts on August 10, 2012:
- Appetizer: Professional storyteller and radio producer hamming it up on stage
- Main Course: Grilled cheese cookoff, judged by select audience members
- Dessert: A multi-course story slam: food memories, disasters, insights, & more
To get your story into the lineup, email email@example.com by Friday, July 27 with your food story (7 minutes or less). It’s a slam, so they’ll be picking the best of the best to perform on stage.
