Griffo Private Event: Long Story Short- Celebrations

Stories of Celebrations!

Yes, there will be cake. In honor of all July birthdays.

Life is a serious of Celebrations! The obvious ones: birthdays, graduations, bar mitzvahs, baptisms, new jobs, new spouses, moves, holidays, babies - and the less obvious ones: first time your neighbor didn't park their oil-leaking car in front of your house, the day your boss first called you by your real name; or when your dog, Tippy, actually peed OUTSIDE the house.

*THE STORY is NOT 'THE CELEBRATION' - that would be boring and predictable. Yawn. Golf Clap. So happy you turned 50 in the Bahamas on a sailboat, etc. Save the sweet Celebration report for family members or people that are trapped with you at the appetizer table.

The real stories BEHIND the celebration are more interesting - the birthday cake that started a food fight, the really surprising Surprise Party, the anniversary vacation that ended in the ER. You get the picture. Life stories. Get vulnerable.

FEATURE STORYTELLER: Brandon Spars! Multiple Moth Winner, Westside Stories, BASH performer, TEDx Speaker, Traveler & Storyteller Extraordinaire!!

You have real stories. Tell them!

Griffo Private Event: Got Balls? Story Slam

Stories of Courage - from Guts to Nuts.

You have stories. Tell them. That time you stood up for yourself. Sent that text that made you feel like Lion King. Told that dude to go to the end of the line. Or that time you probably should have thought your words through a little more carefully; or perhaps waited in the car. Courage, facing fears, acting like a wild card. The story of what happens when enough is enough.

Griffo Distillery, 1320 Scott St, Petaluma.

Rules: 5 min story (we have a timer), must be true, must be about you (not your boss, co-worker, mother), have a beginning, middle, end. No rants, no stand-up.

We draw 8 names out of the hat.

Featured Storyteller: MARY CAROUBA

Co-author of 'Women at Ground Zero: Stories of Courage and Compassion'. Multiple Moth winner, performer, presenter, storyteller extraordinaire!

Producer/Emcee: Kay DeMartini, 'Storytelling Works' KayDeMartini.com
