Another Round Storytelling

This month’s installment features Jefferson, a self-described “parent and pervert” who runs the Bare! and Spill! storytelling series in New York City, Boston and Washington, D.C. (Listen to his heartbreaking account of spending Christmas with his ex-wife on the Risk! podcast.) Please join us for tales of drinking and debauchery — and throw your name in the cocktail shaker for the chance to tell your own!

Every first Thursday of the month, Another Round Storytelling serves up a new batch of stories in which alcohol is the star, or at least plays a supporting role. Five people are randomly chosen and receive 10 minutes to tell a booze-soaked tale. Then a special guest headliner takes the stage to close out the show. 

721 Franklin Avenue, Brooklyn
2/3/4/5/C to Franklin Ave
8p; $5 suggested donation
