We know it’s not specifically West Chester news but it effects everyone across the United States, therefore I just wanted to remind everyone that the second presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney will be held tonight at 9 p.m.
Nearly 60 million people tuned in Oct. 3 to watch the first presidential debate between President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. In that first confrontation, viewers and pundits claimed that Romney won, and his campaign got a bump in the polls as a result. Will Obama vindicate himself this time?
Who doesn’t like a sweet treat to start the evening? I previously reported/blogged on the 2012 Chester County Cupcake Clash happening September 20th aka tonight! I Just wanted to remind everyone because you don’t want to miss this delicious event, if you have a sweet tooth like myself than I am sure to see you there!
The event will take place tonight at Radley Run Country Club and history will be in the making once the doors open at 6:30 p.m. Voters are welcome to taste away from 7 to 8:30 and the winner will be announced at 9 p.m. Proceeds will benefit the Bringing Hope Home, an organization dedicated to providing emotional and financial assistance to local families who are battling cancer. Find out more about their Hope for 100 campaign HERE and their rapidly approaching STOMP Cancer 5K!

If you haven’t been to a West Chester’s “Story Slam,” you might assume that it’s rife with the kind get-down-and-dirty, bare-all happenings found in many small-time comedy clubs – a kind of mud wrestling for the literary set. Tonight’s Story Slam, which is the final one before the best of the lot compete for the “Grand Slam” in November, is likely to have one shocking story among the evening’s line-up. That goes with the territory. Still, the point of Story Slam is not necessarily standing before an audience and baring one’s soul. It’s the act of creating, often on the spot, a cohesive narrative that the audience may (or may not) deem great story-telling.
The West Chester Story Slam
• Where: Ryan’s Pub. 124 W. Gay St. West Chester, PA 19380
• Date: Tonight, October 11, 2011
• Time: Begins at 8 p.m. Come early for the best seats.
Features: Open to all people – both spectators and story-tellers. All stories have a time limit and must follow this month’s theme: celebrity sightings. As the web site describes it, “come on out and tell your story about a brush with greatness.” Tonight’s Slam is also the last chance to see who will go onto the final November Grand Slam.
