Open Mic Show-and-Tell, hosted by Paul Lukas, returns to the City Reliquary on March 17th. (Yes, that’s St. Paddy’s Day, so we’ll have some Irish whisky-spiked cider on hand, along with our usual beer, but otherwise no crazy Irish/green shenanigans.)
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 scrapbook made from torn-out pages from The New Yorker, a special good-luck keychain, a faded Polaroid, and wooden spoon that had been repurposed into a spanking device. We look forward to seeing even better treasures — and hearing even better stories — this time around (although the spanking spoon may be hard to top).
You can either (a) bring an object of personal significance and be prepared to talk about it, or (b) 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.
