Valentine’s Night Lineup for February 14
Our obvious topic this month is Love Stories! No need for a schmancy dinner out. Just cozy up by the fire upstairs, then after doors open at 7:30, pull up a chair and get ready to get your ear bent starting at 8.
Oh, and there will be home-baked cookies, thanks to reader Missy Brown.
Tickets are $5, buy ’em here.
Now meet the people who will rock your world with their true tales, presented with visual (and audio) evidence.
