And here it comes again. The start of a new week. The Monday Blues. Mondays can be the tabula rasa or the impending doom of dull duties.  This month we’re changing it up.  Our StorySlam is around #MotivationMonday. Tell us your “Monday” story.  What have you done to inspire yourself as you start something new or face another day of the same?  Whether you come with a story or an ear to hear one, stride into this month’s StorySlam: #MotivationMonday with returning host Nick Kupsey. 

What’s a StorySlam? A StorySlam is more than a storytelling competition. It’s an invitation to share five minutes of your life and connect with a room full of people who appreciate a well-told tale. Gutsy audience members sign up at the door to tell true stories on the theme of the night. Of those who sign up, ten storytellers are randomly selected to take to the stage with their most outrageous, heartfelt, and hilarious tales. Judges, also selected from the audience, determine the StorySlam winner, who is awarded a $100 prize, and a chance to compete in the season finale Grand Slam. Got five minutes? Come and lend an ear, or share an experience!

Join us at La Peg for a drink before the show! La Peg offers Happy Hour deals Monday through Friday from 5pm to 7pm. Specials include $3 glasses of house wine, $3 any draft pint, $6 rotating Power’s Irish Whisky featured cocktail, and three rotating $5 bar snack specials.
