Hi Everyone,

If you haven’t heard already, Starbucks is closing five stores in Seattle and one of them Is the Olive Way store where we do our show. I talked to Halley the manager there and she said they can’t guarantee they’ll be open this Thursday. So I’m taking the show back to Zoom until I find a new venue. 

I’ll be looking high and low for a new place to hold our shows in person. I’ll try to keep it centrally located so none of us have to drive too far to get to it. Until then, well be back on Zoom so we don’t miss any shows. The good part is that we’ll be able to hear stories again from all the people from around the world who we met when we were on Zoom before. We heard stories from Germany, India, Australia, and all over the US. 

I’m including this Thursday’s Zoom info at the bottom of this post.

In the meantime, I’m telling a story tonight at Unexpected Productions with one of our new FGS tellers, Zac. It’ll be the last time you see me in person for a while. Come on down if you want to see storytelling and improv. It will also be the first time Zac tells a story live on stage. He’s told with us twice on Zoom but this will be the first time he stares into the eyes of strangers while he shares a story. Come see him tell the story about the worst camping trip ever. Trust me. It’s the worst. You have never had this happen on a camping trip. You don’t want to miss this.

Here is the Zoom info for our show on Thursday:
