Being an outsider can be rough—heck, S.E. Hinton even wrote a book about it. And yet, it's a feeling that is exceptionally commonplace, especially during those pesky adolescent years.
Tonight, you can hear stories of feeling out of the loop and share your own when Story Story Night presents Outsider: Stories of Strangers in Strange Lands. Featured storytellers Laura “Wally” Johnston, Arlen Andrew Donald and Clay Morgan will brave the Story Story stage at The Rose Room and disclose tales of a family vacation to Mexico, a "Scottish stranger in a strange Idaho," and "mythic beast in wild backlands."
After the featured storytellers weave their tales, the open story slam will commence. Have a drink at the full bar and then disclose your outsider story if your name is drawn from the vessel. The winner will net a stay at Boise Guest House and a gift certificate to Rediscovered Books.
Music is provided by Dan Costello and the evening will be hosted by the always lovely Jessica Holmes.
The show starts at 7 p.m. and costs $5 at the door, but for $7, you can purchase your ticket in advance online and get in at 6 p.m., instead of 6:30 p.m. If you've ever been to Story Story Night, you know that extra half hour is worth the $2, unless you don't mind standing.
After the show, the party moves to Red Feather Lounge/Bitter Creek, where ticket holders can take advantage of a special drink offer.
