Join us this coming Wednesday, Dec 13 at Hawthorne Bottle Shoppe for the next edition of True Stories where the theme will be Friends. Frenemy stories are totally acceptable. Also, if you have no friends. Or how about that friend who makes you (and us) better?? What more ideal time to review your friend list than during this, the month of giving? Get there early to grab a sandwich and a drink, and get your name in the fuckit bucket for a chance to tell us about your besties. Admission is $5. RSVP here.
Every show is a once-in-a-lifetime event — we don’t know what’s going to happen. If you get called up, you’ll get five minutes to tell us your story. Know your first and last sentence, and take us somewhere, and maybe YOU’LL be the featured teller someday. Our storytellers use no notes and no props.
Believe it or not, we’re a Keep St. Pete Lit event.
Each show is a once-in-a-lifetime event, we never know what’s going to happen. There are no notes, no props. The audience relies on the power of your story. If you get called up (not every name can get called), you’ll get five minutes to tell us your story.
To make your story memorable and fun, know your first and last sentence. Then take us listeners somewhere, and maybe YOU’LL be the featured teller someday.
Believe it or not, we’re a Keep St. Pete Lit event. RSVP here.

Every person in the audience has the chance to tell a story. Put your name in the fucket bucket, and if you’re called you get five minutes to tell your real-life story. No props. No notes. The audience picks the “best” story of the night. Random prizes will be awarded…Admission is FREE. But order something from the bar for gods’ sake. Each month one storyteller is featured. At the end of the night, the audience picks a completely scientific “best” story of the night.

August is one of those months, the kind of hot and sticky that puts you in a mood to quit. We’re ready to honor that here at True Stories, where the theme for our August show will be QUITTING. Join us Wednesday, August 9 at 7pm at Hawthorne Bottle Shop. Get there early to grab a sandwich and a drink, and get your name in the fucket bucket for a chance to tell your own story.

Our featured teller will be Mike Mayleben, three-time True Stories champ! Other than that, we don’t know what’s going to happen. You may regale us with a story about that time you quit your job, then again, maybe you quit a place, or heroin.  Whatever it is you quit, come tell us about it in five minutes. Know your first and last sentence, and take us somewhere, and maybe YOU’LL be a featured teller someday. No notes, no props. Just you and your story.

Believe it or not, we’re a Keep St. Pete Lit event. RSVP here.

You will be judged. Sort of. The audience is always generous. (See this clip if you’re dubious.) You might even get a video of your story put onto Creative Loafing’s website.
