Our Guilty Pleasures Story Slam is March 27th! 7pm!
Please note our new start time for the Delco Story Slam is 7pm.
What is your Guilty Pleasure?
We all have something we secretly enjoy when nobody is watching. Perhaps it is a bowl of ice cream or Oreo cookies late at night. Maybe you enjoy watching old episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer or you collect something odd. This could be a guilty pleasure you had as a kid and eventually outgrew or something you are currently obsessed with. There’s tons of directions a storyteller can take this – do your co-workers or classmates have a guilty pleasure? Perhaps your family shared a secret pleasure? Oh, we know there are stories out there and Delco has them!
Wikipedia provides a great description of the term here:
A guilty pleasure is something one enjoys and considers pleasurable despite feeling guilt for enjoying it. The “guilt” involved is sometimes simply fear of others discovering one’s lowbrow or otherwise embarrassing tastes, such as campy styles of entertainment. Fashion, video games, music, films, and junk food can be examples of guilty pleasures.
Join us on March 27th at Burlap and Bean Coffeehouse for our Guilty Pleasures Story Slam, our third story slam of the season! You can tell your story, but you don’t have to tell a story to attend. We hear approximately ten stories on a night, and videos of the stories are recorded and placed on our website. We also select three stories for each month’s Delco Story Slam podcast. If you want to tell your Guilty Pleasure story but don’t want it shown on the internet, just tell us. Check out our Rules page to learn more.
Please note our new start time of 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in person at Burlap and Bean or by clicking here.
