Event Description

Storyteller/comedian Mike Sweeney tells a singular tale of two distinct personal journeys with a path in common. 

How do you distinguish "settling down" from settling? How do you know that your latest someone is indeed "special"? A free-spirited single mom and a would-be pickup artist find out the answers when they begin an unlikely long-distance relationship. How close can two people come to each other in a wired world where insecure friends, demanding bosses, and dormant online dating profiles threaten to pull them apart?


7:00 - 8:00 PM - Open Telling
Tell your own eight-minute story! All levels of experience welcome.
8:00 - 9:30 PM - "Settling Down" With "Someone Special"
