Eating up the stories...NOV 23 slam

Last night at Kennedy's Midtown we had +50 people + 10 fabulous judged stories on dining disasters + 2 mini features by the judges Judith Black and Kevin Brooks + some improv games - "Two Truths and A Lie " and 1 minute stories on random food haiku. Jess Sutich was a great co-host, funny, great timing and she remembered all the details I forgot - which was, sadly, all the details. 

This month the stories were deliciously good! Easily, many prize winning stories in the set. Thanks to all who came out, supported, organized and made the magic happen.

Thanks to the Judges who had a really hard job - so many good stories. In random order? Well, they did it! We thank them from the bottom of our hearts. Our judges for NOV 23rd were: Bambi Good ( who organized and trained the 3 teams)and is volunteering as Chief Justice of the Slam Court -
