Cringe Night

cringe night

Share, laugh, cry, and cringe at one of Decorah’s newest storytelling events! Pick some of the your favorite entries from your old diaries, treasured journals, saved love notes, and the like to come share aloud. If you can’t get your hands on past writings, we invite you to jot down your recount of adolescent antics or thirty-something shenanigans and share them all the same. Really, anything goes; accompanying photos and BYOB welcome. Hosted by local author, June Melby, there will be lots of laughing, a few tears, and hey, it’s cheaper than therapy!!

Signup to participate at the door; slots are first come, first serve. Doors open at 7:30!
