Update #3

Narratively Extravaganza Tomorrow!

1 comment

Hi there!

Narratively's storytelling, comedy, beer and music extravaganza, Beer-Telling & Funk, is just one day away! We're grateful for your invaluable support over the past few months, and we'd love it if you joined us at Brooklyn Brewery tomorrow if you're in NYC.

The evening's line-up includes live storytelling by Moth GrandSLAM champion Aaron Wolfe, standup comedy by Evan Williams, and eclectic funk and soul music. There'll also be a raffle with very cool prizes, ranging from concerts tickets to City Winery, free access to The Atavist's catalogue of stories, storytelling workshops with RISK!, gift certificates to Seamless, a Splendid Spoon soup party, Brooklyn Brewery beer tokens, and more!

The only price for admission is a pledge to Narratively on Kickstarter — which you've all already generously taken care of! The event is from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m., tomorrow, Tuesday, August 28. More details are here, on our Facebook event page. RSVP's via Facebook are not required, but they would be a big help as we plan the evening!

Please invite your friends and continue to help us spread the word. We've raised 52% of our $50,000 fundraising goal, but that means we still have $23,000 to go — and only 14 days to get there! 

Thank you for believing in us.
