cultural event

I only got one cultural event in last week. So damned cold. Instead I went to the gym way too damn much.

For my one cultural event last week, I went to Sherry Weaver's Storytelling Series in thr back room of Biscuit BBQ in Park least I think it was Park Slope, I'm not 100% certain what that area is considered.

Any ways here are some pictures. I didn't love it, but it wasn't bad either (though trudging all the way out there in the snow to sit in that chilly room did add to the pressure). The stories ranged from intolerable to just OK, except for this guy Daniel Reinisch who told a fun story with just the right mix of poignancy, self-reflection, and self-deprecating Jewish humor. I'm planning to go to the next event where I will see the fantastic Mike Daisey, who I blogged about a few weeks back.

Anyway here are some pics from the other night. Thanks to Sarah for inviting me!

Sorry the pictures are blurry, my hands were shivering.
