“Into The Wild” is the theme of the next West Chester Story Slam, which takes place at Side Bar & Restaurant on Tuesday, June 11. According to West Chester Story Slam’s website:
The word “wild” is key here. Sure, we would like to hear stories about the plains of the Serengeti, the peaks of Kilimanjaro, and the base camp in Nepal, so bring your favorite outdoorsman story with you. These stories could be about survival, beauty, or solitude. Stories about self discovery. The term “wild” can also be used in other situations that occur closer to home. Did you find yourself in the thick of a potential protest or riot? Perhaps you visited a frat house where the party got a bit out of hand?
The event is sure to bring joy and laughter with the storytelling beginning at 8:00PM. Limited seating is available, so please reserve your seats online by clicking here. Last month’s event sold out so don’t wait get your tickets today!
This Thursday come downtown to enjoy Swingin’ Summer Thursdays! The event brings great bands, great food, crafters, clowns, jugglers and more to downtown starting at 6:30pm.

Swingin’ Summer Thursdays is produced by the West Chester Parks & Recreation Dept and sponsored by the West Chester BID. For more information visit Downtownwestchester.com or click here.
