Last week, after a Hurriacane-inducing reschedule, we finally gathered at Krrb HQ to commemorate the author, Benjamin Anastas and his excellent memoir, To Good to Be True. (If you haven’t picked up a copy, do yourself a favor and grab one now.) To get the party started right, we had Brooklyn Brewery and their luxiourious libation, Ashley of The Fat Beagle brought it hard with her gourmet take on southern food and we were giving away Kindles.
But the real climax of the party was when we had five excellent story tellers showing and telling, and ulimately trading in five minutes or less. Rounding out the show was a conversation between Ben (yes, we are on a first name basis with him now) and the one and only Dan Kennedy of The Moth. Aka Dan. Hearing more about the creative process and the experience of hitting all time lows from these wordsmith super stars really made it worth come out. If you missed it, I’m sorry for you. But guess what. We’ve got pictures. Check them out on Facebook. And if you didn’t miss it, go ahead and tag yourself because that’s what we do on Facebook.
Story Tellers and Their Tales
Marti spent 16 hours traveling to Lego Land in Denmark but will still trade her Lego calendar.
Dave has a bong to trade. For tobacco, of course. Side note: It was also ODB’s Birthday on the night of Show & Tell (and Trade).
Kerri aggressively asks, who are you calling bologna boobs now?! And she’s got a boutineer to trade. If you’re curious for more Kerri, you can check out her web series at Geeking Out.
After riding the Oscar Mayer Weiner Mobile across country, Robin really knows that Mr Mayer has a way with b-o-l-o-g-n-a.
After learning some hard life lessons, Bethany has some sweatpants to trade that may or may not be clean. (PS, that’s Dan Kennedy losing himself at Bethany’s story.)
Check out the 10 foot dry erase mural our neighbor Rumsey drew for the event. Cool, ain’t it??
