StorySlam: “Crush”

Ex Fabula StorySlams strengthen community bonds by creating spaces where people can connect over true, personal stories. No props, no notes – just the elements of “Story. Stage. You”. This StorySlam will feature stories related to the theme of “Crush”. You can come just to listen – or, if you have a story related to the night’s theme and can share it in 5 minutes or less, throw your name in the hat for a chance to take the stage. Another way to share stories is via UltraShorts, which are brief, true personal stories written on slips of paper and then read onstage by the emcee. At the end of the night, the audience votes and an Audience Favorite is crowned.

If you like beer combined with a genuine historic German atmosphere, then you will love Best Place at the old Pabst Brewery! The ballroom, tavern and the gift shop, which is filled with antiques, many of which are recovered from the original brewery, are hidden between several old as well as refurbished brewery buildings. Dont let yourself get thrown off by the run-down appearance of some of the surrounding buildings; the area is part of a great redevelopment project after the original brewery shut down in the 90s. The tavern has two beautiful little courtyards, one of which houses a statue of Captain Pabst, where guests can enjoy a glass of cold Milwaukee or Wisconsin brewed beer. Best Place is also one of the few places that have the pre-prohibition beer Batch 19 on tap! If you are interested in learning more about Milwaukees history, you should definitely go on one of their tours. Tours are offered on weekends at noon and 2pm and include a free beer ($9 for adults, $7 for students and seniors). All in all, if youre looking for a place to sit with your friends and enjoy great beer in an authentic German and historic atmosphere, this is definitely the Best Place for you to be!
