Event Description:

This is Real Life is a Rialto open mic-style storytelling hour where YOU are the star. Got a great (or even mediocre) story about that time when …? Of course you do! Come hone your skills or just listen and share some laughs—and sometimes tears—with us on the third Wednesday of every month.


Stories must be true to life (but as with all good yarns, we won’t complain if you embellish).

Each storytelling spot is 10 minutes long. You don’t have to take up the whole time. Sometimes the best stories are short and sweet.

We love to see people working on their skills. You don’t have to be a pro to get up on stage.

RESPECT THE STORYTELLERS! They are sharing a piece of their lives with us, good, bad, or ugly.


In Full Bloom

Springtime is upon us and so are all the metaphors that go with it. Come share your story of growth, coming of age, your gardening endeavors, or that time you stopped to smell the roses!

Come tell a story, sing a song, or just enjoy the evening while we entertain you!

Come in early and Eat and Drink at Paninoteca in The Rialto Living Room starting at 5pm!
