Story League Halloween Mini-Show and Mixer

'

Editorial Review

Washingtonians love to talk about themselves. How else to explain the growing number of events where people get onstage and tell stories about their real lives to a crowd of strangers? These range from the more conventional SpeakEasy events, where all tales center on a common theme, or the hilarious-meets-cringeworthy Mortified, where you can hear professional women fearlessly reading their seventh-grade love poems and diary entries. One of the best small groups is Story League, which is hosting a mixer at the cozy Black Fox Lounge in Dupont. Stop by to hear an hour of Halloween-related stories, then hang around for a meet-and-greet fueled by $5 Absolut cocktails. Because of the theme, costumes are encouraged, but not required.
