Adios, Fifth Estate; so long, Tell It: Brooklyn.

Well, it’s the end of another era in the Tell It: Brooklyn saga. We received notification today that our venue for the past few years, The Fifth Estate in Park Slope, has closed its doors for good.

(And by “received notification” we mean, we read it on Coree Spencer’s The 5th Mic page, but that’s another story.)

We’d like to thank every single one of you, storytellers and audience members alike, who endured the pings and dings of pinball machines, inattentive bartenders, and the planet’s loudest heating system to share in our magical little storytelling night beyond the sheer, non-noise cancelling curtain.

For now, we’re taking the opportunity to restructure and regroup our focus for our beloved storytelling mic. Stay tuned. Tell It will be back before you know it … bigger and better than ever before.

All the love,

MAY-be, MAY-be Not | May 17 @ 8PM

Could it be? This may very well be our last show among the dings and pings of pinball machines at The Fifth Estate, as well as that bloody, loud-assed heater.

Drop your name in our can for a chance to tell your 5-minute story about auctions, or extended breakups, or just getting the hell out.

Twice the Fun!

Tell It: Brooklyn is now hosting two shows every month: one that’s 100% open mic and one that’s a mixture of curated performers and guests from the peanut can.

Our first March show will be at The Fifth Estate on the 2nd and will feature an illustrious group of storytellers direct from the can. The theme’s Feel the Heat and our goal is to get every single one of you up to tell your 5-minute story, if you’re into that kind of thing.

The second March show is on the 15th at our new venue, Threes Brewing, which is the sweetest spot ever. There we’re featuring Drew Prochaska (The Moth), Jamie Brickhouse (Beavis & Butthead), and Sean O’Brien (Kidiot), as well as drawing a few names from the can. The theme is Loving It! because, we really, really are.

We love you the most and hope to see you at one or both of the shows!
