    I would love to hear these personal stories. We all have some insane stuff happen in our lives but to get up on stage to share, must be crazy tales. Always sells out before I get a chance to get tickets.

  2. Bill W. September 16, 2013 at 4:48 pm #

    This would be a special treat. And a burger and brew would complement the stories nicely.

  3. Meredith September 16, 2013 at 5:20 pm #

    This sounds like the perfect evening out! I would love to take my sweetie out to such a great event!

  4. Rb. September 16, 2013 at 9:00 pm #

    I’d love to go to this event. Storytelling nights are the BEST, especially when Roderick is on the bill.

    Been listening to a lot of storytelling podcasts. Would be great to see them perform live. Adds a whole other level

  6. Kristen September 19, 2013 at 10:36 am #

    A night of storytelling sound like a great way to spend an evening. The After Dark theme adds an additional level of intrigue to the whole event. I would love tickets!

    I’ve never been to a storytelling event and this sounds like a great way to spend an evening with my very prego sister who will be visiting from Seattle next weekend.

  8. Russell September 19, 2013 at 1:30 pm #

  30. Jen September 26, 2013 at 9:46 pm #

    I’ve been wanting to do something like this. This after dark theme sounds superb.

  31. Jessica F September 27, 2013 at 1:33 am #

    My dog got poked in the eye by my chicken and the vet took all my money. I could use a good laugh.

  32. Alex September 27, 2013 at 8:59 am #

    I love storytelling especially of the dirty or awkward variety. This sounds so rad and need to take my girlfriend on a cool date because she is bored but I’m broke so please help haha.

  33. d@Ve September 27, 2013 at 9:42 am #

    ditto to alex’s plea above. suppose this is Every(poor)man’s dilemma, or, at lease, those lucky enough to have a girlfriend. help me (or him) remedy the holes in our pockets by keeping plugged the holes of the heart. wow, that’s a lot o’ power you’ve got, pdxpipeline!

  34. Colleen September 27, 2013 at 1:17 pm #

    Would to attend! I am obsessed with the art of storytelling. I have an intense fear of public speaking, so I have to live vicariously through others!

  35. Lisa C. September 27, 2013 at 1:32 pm #

    I will go and spend $$ on food and drinks…that means I’m the best qualified to win. :)
