You guys! We don’t know about you, but for us, 2016 is off to a super exciting start!
Our January storytellers Deepa Ambekar, Tami Gatta and Andre Medrano brought all the magic for a packed house, and the new tech board gave your hosts the opportunity to show how we handle sound problems on the fly. #WeDontNeedNoStinkinMicrophones
We also shared our GREATBIGHUGEEXCITING news that—starting in February—Tell It: Brooklyn will be happening twice a month!
First Wednesdays at The Fifth Estate
We’re maintaining our same old schedule at same old venue and will still be hosting TiB on the first Wednesday of every month at The Fifth Estate (506 5th Ave btw 11 & 12, Park Slope) where pinball machines ring true and Pacman roams free in the ambient noise of the ancient heating system. Meanwhile, we’re also adding on a brand new night…
Third Tuesdays at Threes Brewing
Y’all. We are so freaking stoked about this new venue! Threes Brewing (333 Douglass St at 4th Ave, Gowanus) is an awesome brewpub that produces its own beer AND provides us with a private room. The Tiny Montgomery, it’s called. How freaking cute is that?
We’ve got plenty of room for seating, sweet cocktail tables for your drinks, plus the bar serves pitchers of beer and carafes of wine so you can set yourself up before the show!
Threes Brewing also hosts a new pop up restaurant every month, so should you want to get your grub on, that’s totally something you can do, too. Seriously, we love this place.
Come Tell It at Tell It!
Since we’ve got twice as many shows, we get to feature twice as many storytellers! Watch out for our calls for pitches on our Facebook page (www.Facebook.com/TellitBrooklyn) or check the Upcoming Shows page for a list of future themes and pitch deadlines.
Of course, if you’ve got a super kickass story that’s just dying to be told on the Tell It stage, send it along! Even if it doesn’t fit one of our themes, we want to see it!
