Open Mic in Robb Alley
First Tuesdays at 7:00 pm     Free   Free Parking

September 2, October 7, December 2
(none in November)

Do you ever hanker for a chance to sit, sip a cup of java and relax?

Do just that at Proctors on the first Tuesday evenings from 7:00-9:00 p.m., when storytellers in Schenectady have an open mic especially for them. No reservations are necessary or taken. The organizer and emcee is storyteller Joe Doolittle. Robb Alley is in the old Carl Company, with a stage on one side and the Muddy Cup Coffee House on the other side. You can buy something to drink and/or eat at the Coffee House, then meander over, sit and sip and listen to stories. It's one of those places where everyone is friendly and you’ll be glad you stopped by :) You can even bring a friend!

Sign up to tell at 6:45 p.m. The emcee will weave the evening together and there will be no feedback. The “weave” starts at 7:00 pm. The Featured Teller of the evening will tell 7:15 - 7:45, then the mic is open for the rest of us. If necessary, there is a 10-minute limit on story length. No reading of stories, just telling, please.

Free admission. Coffee, tea, soft drinks, sandwiches and desserts are available for purchase.

Proctors now has free parking in the Metroplex Parking Garage, 220 Broadway, near the bakery Villa Italia. Then just walk across the street and enter the Proctors Arcade via the rear entrance. Don't worry about any snow or ice as you enter the Arcade -- the sidewalk automatically melts precipitation.

Hope to see AND hear you there!

There is also an open mic in Saratoga Springs, NY.
