Thomas Pryor presents: "My Aim Is True" 

Our Stoops to Nuts Valentine Show 

Ryan's Daughter, 350 E. 85th Street 
February 14th @ 3pm to 6pm ~ Free show 


I''ll perform sections from my upcoming play, "City Boy." Our musical artists: Nina & Son (David Terhune & Nina Terhune) and Eric Vetter with his partners in crime.


Nina & Son are David Terhune and his daughter, Nina Terhune. David is best known as an original member of the Loser's Lounge, NYC's long running tribute series, now in it's 22nd year . The Losers, the best entertainment bang for the buck in NYC, perform regularly at Joe's Pub and Lincoln Center. Nina grew up attending Loser's Lounge shows and started performing with her father in 2014. They specialize in the kind of harmonies that only shared genetics can produce. Accompanying themselves on guitars, their repertoire runs from The Beatles to Gram Parsons to Squeeze to X to David's own compositions.


Eric Vetter is the MC/producer of long-running NY comedy/variety staple, "No Name... & A BAG O' CHIPS". That flagship show has spawned 4 other ongoing shows under the No Name umbrella. No Name celebrated its 20th anniversary last February with an all-star show at the 3000+ seat United Palace in Washington Heights. Mr. Vetter is also lead vocalist for The Summer Replacements, the Bag O' Chips show's house band.
Yorkville author & photographer, Thomas Pryor's work has appeared in The NY Times, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and other periodicals. His memoir, “I Hate the Dallas Cowboys - tales of a scrappy New York boyhood,” was published in 2014 (YBK). Pryor’s blog: "Yorkville: Stoops to Nuts," was chosen by The NYTimes for their Blog Roll in 2008. Thomas appeared on PBS's series: "Baseball: A New York Love Story," NBC’s “New York Nonstop,” and “This American Life.” His newspaper column ran in Our Town & The West Side Spirit. For five years, Thomas curated a monthly storytelling show, “City Stories: Stoops to Nuts,” at the Cornelia St. Café that Time Out Magazine, The NY Daily News and CBS News praised. His photography portfolio, "River to River - New York Scenes From a Bicycle," was published in 2012 (YBK). Cornelia St. Cafe hosted an exhibition of his photography. NBC, NY Press and NY 1 highly recommended the exhibit and his portfolio. You can view and purchase his prints online at Thomas R. Pryor Photography. January 2017, Pryor will present his first play, "City Boy," dedicated to Herman Wouk's character Herbie Bookbinder and the old neighborhood.

Robert Burns, put his words to Scottish folk melodies. Modifying and recreating tunes he heard as a child. His emotional memories flood his work. Stoops to Nuts draws inspiration from the process of listening to a pleasing sound (prose, verse or song) that you never forget and you're compelled to tell or sing the melody from your spot. "My Aim is True," Well said, Elvis Costello.


Also sometime here.


29 Cornelia Street / Bleecker

"City Stories: Stoops to Nuts" storytelling show

WHEN:  Sporadically

TICKETS:  $9 ~ includes a free drink.

RESERVATIONS: Not Necessary 

TIME: It is the early show at 6:00 PM and the doors open at 5:45 PM. It's a tiny space with lots of little tables so it's best if you get there early so you can get a good one. 

LOCATION:  It's between Bleecker and West 4th in the West Village, half way down the block. The Performance space is inside and downstairs.

PARKING: it's between Bleecker and W 4th in the West Village so if you're driving in I suggest you get there a bit early - street parking is tough as the Muni Meters on Cornelia only allow 1-hour parking until 10 pm (some of the other side streets allow longer) so, if you can afford it, I'd go for a Parking Lot.

DROPPING OFF: If you're dropping someone off before parking, just take 7th Avenue South, turn left on Bleecker; Cornelia Street is the second turn on the left.

SUBWAY:  Easy! Take the A, B, C, D, E, F, and M to West 4th St. or 1 to Christopher St-Sheridan Sq. Cornelia Street is between W. 4th + Bleecker.

DINNER AFTERWARD: the food is GREAT. Check out their MENU!
