Three picks for what to do in Central PA on Tuesday, June 23.
1) “It’s My Job” Story Slam at Tellus360 (Lancaster)
Absolutely everyone has had one job, one boss, one coworker, or even one badly-placed workplace parking lot that’s made them miserable. The nature of the human race means that we often delight in other’s misfortunes – or, uh, find empowerment in people rising above their not-so-fabulous circumstances. At this week’s Story Slam at Tellus360, for the paltry price of $6 + ticketing fee in advance or $8 at the door, you can witness the travails and triumphs of other people navigating this wild job market. Check out this story by Robert Williams from a 2010 West Chester story slam with the same prompt, and try to hold in your laughter (or winces):
2) Team Trivia With Mike Horn at Bube’s Brewery (Mount Joy)
Are you a font of mostly useless knowledge that’s just taking up space in your brain, unable to be utilized? If no, be thankful that you didn’t play QuizBowl in middle school. If yes, well, then do we have the event for you! Hit up Bube’s Brewery in Mount Joy tonight for trivia with Mike Horn! First, second, and third places will receive prizes. Everyone else – well, buy yourself a beer.
3) Mexitalica Open Mic at Mexitaly (York)
If you’re up for a little culture this evening, then you are thoroughly in luck. Better put on your beret and get yourself over to Mexitaly in York. It’s time to get your jam on. Tonight from 8 – 11 p.m., the Mexitalica Open Mic is playing home to an open mic with A.D. Chandler hosting. Be there or be square, as the kids like to say.
