Bob foltin and I will be hosting the open stage on saturday. Rules on this particular one are that you have to sign up during the day on saturday and then a certain number of folks are chosen at random by us or other staff. Folks generally get 10 minute slots. Any type of entertainment is allowed. And we do get everything from comedy to accapella, to bands and singer songwriters, to poets and dramtic arts. Even a clown and an origami artist who explained his work while producing objects for the audience. Great fun!! See you all there.Tim.
