Minneapolis/St. Paul finally has its own Moth Story Slam! After a failed attempt at attending the inaugural event (they oversold tickets, we didn't want to trade our advance tickets for standing room only space so we opted for a refund and free tickets to the next event - see this article for details), we attended the second event. I am sure glad I gave it another chance, because we were treated to a fabulous evening of gifted storytellers. Throughout the evening, we laughed, we got teary-eyed, we poked fun at our local culture and I had an amazing gin and tonic.
The host, Mike Fotis, did a stellar job of adding in some of his own stories, keeping the night rolling and adding an upbeat energy to the show.

The brave souls who told stories on the theme of "Love Hurts" did it intimidatingly well! I know I am too chicken to go up on that stage myself, but I am grateful for the opportunity to listen to them.
The story slam venue, The Amsterdam Bar and Hall, has a opaque liquor wall that you can walk behind. I brought my camera along specifically because I wanted to capture a few pics of it!
