Telling stories to those around us is an age-old aspect of human nature, and now locals have an opportunity to share to a broad audience at Lucky You Lounge’s new Sunset Story Slam series. Open to anyone, the monthly event gives storytellers the opportunity to share around a chosen theme. Stories can be about anything and have any tone as long as it follows said theme, but readers can’t use notes at the mic. Over the course of each evening, 10 storytellers, drawn at random from a hat, take the stage to tell a five minute narrative that’s factual and about them. From there, winners are selected to compete in a Grand SLAM Championship. The first slam’s theme is sibling rivalry. If you go, make sure to have a story centered around competition and jealousy ready to share.
