Fomenting from some conversations with friends a couple months ago I was reminded of a recurring evening’s entertainment I used to enjoy down in Chicago’s Wrigleyville. Being a fan of storytelling I used to attend an open mic evening of storytelling at a coffeehouse off Clark Street. It was very cool and a lot of fun. I really enjoyed the level of creativity expressed by those who’s artistic and creative output was through this medium.
Anyway. This next Sunday evening we’re debuting open mic storytelling down at bushel & peck’s.
Storytelling begins at 6:30. We begin accepting names of those wishing to tell a story at 6:00. Names will be selected at random.
The evening will be MC’d by our featured guest storyteller Reid Miller who will also complete our evening with a story of his own.
$5 donation and bushel & peck’s patronage appreciated
This has been added to the NPA calendar.

Just down the street. Walking distance from Beloit’s Historic Districts.
Folks that know Ana-n-I know we gravitate to where the LIVE music is happening. And this year’s Holidazzle did not disappoint. Frankly there was more going on then we had time to enjoy and missed some great stuff. There was so much to take in. I love that we can enjoy this level of live entertainment right next door to the historic neighborhood. The shopping, the other special events, the running into friends as we walked from venue to venue was all great fun. I heard it was successful from the downtown merchant’s perspective as well. That too was good to hear.
Among other things we caught Lance Brown’s Group at Cafe’ Belwah. OMG… wow, they were great! We took note of when they’re going to be there again and will be sure to be there. I’ll update it onto our calendar shortly.
We’ve seen them before, always enjoy them and try to catch them whenever we can. I was pained however to hear we’d missed the Gospel Bells from the Lighthouse Fellowship Church. They were performing just a block over at the Pleasant Street Coffeehouse. Matt Goodwin was sitting in with them as well. Ugh… I heard it was amazing. I’d have really liked to have experienced that. Oh well… next year.
