SCHEDULE CHANGE FOR JULY!
Due to Independence Day, the July edition of Another Round Storytelling takes place on Tuesday, July 2nd, instead of its usual date at LaunchPad (721 Franklin Ave., Brooklyn, NY) at 8 p.m.
Everything else is the same: five 10-minute open mic slots followed by a special guest, which will be storyteller and comedy writer LESLIE GOSHKO, host of Sideshow Goshko! And, as always, a tasty beverage will be available for your drinking pleasure, so bring your best boozy tales and toss your name in the cocktail shaker!
Leslie Goshko is the host and creator of the monthly storytelling series Sideshow Goshko, as well as a Manhattan Monologue Slam champion and a contributing blogger for the Huffington Post.

Her favorite drink is Ketel One vodka and seltzer with lime.
Every month, Another Round Storytelling serves up a new batch of stories in which alcohol is the star, or at least plays a supporting role. Five people are randomly chosen and receive 10 minutes at the mic. Then a featured headliner takes the stage to close out the show. The suggested donation is $5, and all proceeds help fund LaunchPad, a nonprofit arts and performance space in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.
