From Albert’s epic tale of heroism to Anne’s pajama-clad connection with a new friend, Craig’s limitless hobbies to Beatrice’s story of a crystal-ball-juggling commune leader — it’s not possible for us to pick just one favorite moment from the AVLtoday storytelling open mic last Monday. Each teller offered their own funny, heartwarming, entertaining take on what makes them proud to live in Asheville.

Beers were poured, yarns were woven. It was a night of celebration and community both for those who had a tale to tell and those who sat in support. In case you missed it (or just want to relive the experience), watch the video below for a quick recap of the night.

Special thanks to everyone who joined us and to Highland Brewing for keeping the mic on + the drinks flowing.
