Spontaneous Storytelling & Free Drinks Night | Oakland

layover-street-artFinally, a storytelling event where the point is to meet each other. At this brand-new, participatory event, you’ll have a chance to get to know each other as well as listen to real-life stories without notes or scripts. Tell your friends, bring a girlfriend or a wingman, and come on down to The Layover for Spontaneous Storytelling from 6:30-8:30 pm on the 2nd Saturday of the month.

An optional icebreaker game will seduce you into talking and mingling with the other people here. Then, you can put your name in the hat for a chance to tell your story on the theme. It’s called Spontaneous Storytelling because you don’t know the theme until the last minute. Or just hang out and listen. It’s a fun, casual alternative to the bar scene.

Win a drink ticket if you get up to tell a story. And everyone who participates in the pre-show game gets entered in the raffle to win a gift certificate for food & drink at a popular Oakland beer garden. It’s a win-win situation.
