We are so grateful to the the owners of George's Tavern for sharing their space with us for all of these months. We had a blast telling/hearing stories in such a special place. Good luck with your next adventure!
This page will be updated once we sort out a new venue for the event.
Wait ... Racine, Wisconsin?! You read that correctly. When former Homewood host Jolanta Butvilas moved north, she discovered her new hometown was full of storytellers needing a place to share. She thought it would be a great idea to bring the open mic to Racine, and we couldn't agree more.

Simply sign up for a spot, and when your name is called, you will get 7 minutes on stage to share any story you'd like. (Late arrivals can sign up as long as there are spots still available.)
