Dec. 2: Story Slam in Petaluma

Comic and Petaluminary Dave Pokorny is a storyteller, and he’s not the only one. For the last two years, he’s led the ongoing West Side Stories event, where ordinary folks tell their true and extraordinary stories live onstage, and now Pokorny’s assembled a baker’s dozen of the best North Bay storytellers together for the third annual West Side Stories GrandSlam. This popular event sold out last year, so if you want to catch the tantalizing true tales (this year theme is “Reflections”), plan ahead to get a spot for the slam, taking place on Wednesday, Dec. 2, at the Mystic Theater, 21 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. 7:30pm. $13–$18. 707.477.4416.
