Open mic show and tell is exactly what it sounds like: anyone can bring an interesting object and talk about it for up to three minutes. No theme, no agenda – interesting stuff and the stories behind them are their own reward. Objects that were featured last time included a rice cooker obtained from a homeless man, a long piece of yarn that had to be surgically excavated from a dog’s stomach, and a bracelet that has been worn by its owner since second grade. We look forward to seeing even better treasures – and hearing even better stories – this time around.
You can either bring an object of personal significance and be prepared to talk about it, or just be part of the audience (because you can’t have show-and-tell unless there are people on hand to be shown and told). Either way, it’s a good time.
