Remember what it was like before the turn of the century?

… Yeah, I’d like to forget those side ponytails and stirrup pants mixed with grunge rock and the occasional trip to the skating rink, too, but Story League is not letting us off that easily.

On Thursday, Nov. 28, Story League is holding a story telling contest with the theme of the ’90s at Busboys and Poets (2021 14th Street NW) at 9 pm.

The evening will be packed with celebrity guest hosts and judges, such as David Crabb (host, The Moth NYC), Julianne Brienza (executive director, Capital Fringe Festival), Lavanya Ramanathan (Washington Post Going Out Guru) and Wayne Manigo (comedian).

Tickets to the contest are $10 and are available online.

Those interested in participating can submit a 100-word story synopsis online or fill out a card at the show. The winner will be announced at the end of the night and will receive $100 cash as a prize.
