Update: Earlier versions of this story incorrectly stated the downtown address of Tried and True. The southtown address now listed is correct.
Once upon a time, The Corvallis Advocate decided to host an event for those who love a good story.
On Thursday, June 15 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the new South Corvallis Tried & True location, our third community drink will put the focus on storytelling. Local bards will travel from far corners of the community to entertain those in attendance and regale them with stories. The theme of the evening is “Beginnings and Endings”—all related tales are welcome, even those with a middle, so long as they are true. Open mic sign-ups will begin at 6:30 p.m., and those who have a story to tell are asked to keep to an eight-minute maximum length.
The event will begin with tales from our featured storytellers: Wolfgang Dengler, Cherie Gullerud, Kay M. Sagmiller, and Marnie Zoa. Then the open mic participants will take the stage. If you have ever been told you have great stories, come share one with us. If you have ever enjoyed being told a great story (which should be everyone else), come share a drink with us. This event is free and open to the public.
The Storytelling Community Drink comes to the South Town Tried & True, 120 SW Cummings Avenue, on Thursday, June 15 from 7 to 10 p.m. Open mic sign-ups start at 6:30 p.m.
