My Yorkville Childhood in Our Town & Sideshow Goshko

Leslie @ Cornelia St Cafe
Tonight I'm heading to KGB in the East Village for Leslie Goshko's fantastic Sideshow Goshko Storytelling Series featuring Tara Clancy, Cyndi Freeman and Steven Berkowitz. I'm telling a story from my new book, "I Hate the Dallas Cowboys - tales of a scrappy New York boyhood."  Leslie never fails to please the you can count on it standing room crowd. The New Yorker loves, NY Times loves it, Even my grandfather loves it, and he doesn't love anything.

It will be wunderbar! Hope you can make it.

Here's the scoop from Leslie:

Hey Gang! Happy Fall!

Well, we've made it to the time of pumpkin-spiced everything and sweater weather. So what better place to spend an evening than in the coziest, red room of them all? That's right! Your friendly KGB Bar. 

Always FREE, always at a Soviet Bar. 

Here's the GIST:

Award-winning storyteller Leslie Goshko (Huffington Post, Manhattan Monologue Slam Champion) invites some of NY’s top writers and storytellers to share true, bizarre tales about their lives. There’s a challenging trivia game and a free wine giveaway where one lucky audience member will walk away with their very own bottle of Sideshow Sauce! Tonight’s stellar lineup includes stories from:
