Fray Rap up
Posted by tkeelan on Monday 13 October 03 @ 7:44AM

Chicago logs its first successful Fray Day!
Overall the evening went very well. We had some great stories and music. David Kodeski started up off with a story about family, farms and stuff I can't remember because we were just getting started. David was followed by Billy Lombardo who told a story about his 12 years old buddies and how a girls breast feels alot like the wind on your hand when you are riding in the car with your Dad.

Jason Pettis told a wild tale about bisexual threesomes! I would like to thank both Jason and my brother. Jason for a great story, and my brother for - BRINING MY MOTHER! to the show to the Jason's story. My 75 year old mother's comment. "Is that true?"

We also heard about racoons, substitute teaching, love letters, getting bitch slapped by a pimp on a Sunday afternoon, butt plugs that look like nerf footballs to Chinese girls, really good ghost stories.

It was a great evening. Thanks to all for participating and a special thanks to Sally Ann and the Noble Fool Theatre for helping to make it a reality.

My apologies to those who did not get to tell their story. I was a lousy time keeper - I promise a more ridgid schedule next time. Overall we did great, we had to fight against a Sunday night and the Cubs playing game 5.

Next year - a Saturday and a time Nazi as an MC.

Thanks Derek for all your help as well.

Alright, everybody get out and root for the Cubs to sweep or at least win in 4! Game 5 would be Sunday night. But .... Cubs or no Cubs - the Fray is on!

Start Time Correction - 7:00 PM
Posted by tkeelan on Tuesday 30 September 03 @ 11:51AM

Holy shit! Sally Ann just called to say all of our posters say the event is starting at 7:00 PM but he Fray website says 8:00. The answer is 7:00. Doors open at 7:00 the storytelling will get started around 7:30. Sorry for the screw up.
