“I have found a home to tell stories in twice a month and I'd like to invite you to join me. Sometimes there will be themes, sometimes I will encourage you to come out and just tell your best story. Our home is located at a bar in Park Slope called the Monro Pub. We will meet there every 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month at 9 p.m. We will drink, tell stories and connect with each other. I encourage writers, comedians or just anyone who has a story to tell.” — Desirée Taranto, Organizer / Host
