Studio B Series

Story Slam [Upcoming] [Past]

A raucous, five-minute storytelling competition judged by local literary agents – and other lit world luminaries. Open to all storytellers. We do a SLAM every 3 months or so. Start writing.

The Speakeasy Series [Upcoming] [Past]

A subversive nighttime vaudeville featuring one-of-a-kind entertainments. A very in-the-know, use-the-secret-knock kind of affair. Celebrity sightings possible, but unlikely.

Boogie Nights [Upcoming] [Past]

Forget your troubles and dance! We'll change it up every time (disco, swing, country, latin). This is not a bar mitzvah or a wedding, it's much better. Social dancing without excuses – and without having to bring a gift.
