The How I Learned Series features writers, storytellers, comedians, and other raconteurs holding forth on a different theme. It all happens every last Wednesday of the month, and sometimes more than that, which basically means you will have the best night of your life on those nights, repeatedly.



ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 25TH, 8PM: HOW I LEARNED THERE MIGHT BE SOME ISSUES


We're coming to Union Hall and we've got extra baggage this time. Bring your own benzos.

Oh, and hey! I'm happy to report that we'll be at Union Hall for the rest of 2014 and potentially thereafter. No more vagabonding around until, well, hopefully never. Brooklyn's adopted us! It's great because I already live there.
