Event Description

A local arts organization, Arte Dominum (, is partnering with various local venues to launch a new monthly series of Arts Night dinners with writers, storytellers and performance artists. They have asked me to be their next featured artist, the first storyteller they've invited. The event is Wednesday, October 28th at 7pm at Tryst Restaurant in Arlington. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $35.00 at

I will be performing 2 sets of Halloween, Traditional and Original stories which will be part of a two-hour evening that includes dinner and dessert, a lottery (you can win one of my CD’s!), and an informal “Meet The Artist” Chat/Q&A.
What is Arts Night?

From writers and poets to storytellers and performance artists, Arte Dominum brings emerging artists from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines into an intimate setting for an evening of art and interaction. Enjoy a wonderful meal, submerge yourself in new prose and drama, laugh, let go, learn and go to new places. Art is what keeps us whole and balanced, it offers us new perspectives and reminds us not to get bogged down by trivial details.

Arts Night can enhance your days- lose yourself in a story, meet our artists, win a new work of fiction. We look forward to seeing you!!!

$35 Per Person – Your Arts Night evening includes:

* A dinner entrée, dessert, tax and gratuity (beverages not included).
* Performances by our featured artist.
* Entry into our Arts Night Lottery- win a book, an anthology, a CD, or a DVD containing work created by our featured artist!
* An opportunity to “Meet Our Featured Artist” following the performances.
