Let’s cut to the chase, lest you forget. May’s Story Night theme is “Remembering.” You, a potential storyteller, could tell us about someone whose memory you cherish, or don’t. Maybe it’s the grandfather who had a stable set of jokes he repeated often. Or it could be you have someone who sacrificed for you or for all of us. Got a tribute? The stage will be set for you. Or there could have been a time you forgot your date’s name, leaving a lasting impression of mindlessness. It’s Story Night, and it’s all about things remembered. Frankly, all Story Nights are about remembering something, but let’s see what happens here. It should be a night you won’t forget.
Story Night is a night for people to tell true stories. Here are the rules:
* No props
* No notes
* Stories should be about 5 minutes long
* Stories must be true
Come join us for a fun night of stories. Order delicious food and beverages from the Cloverleaf menu. Thursday nights there are specials on the pizza and house wine.

Get a head start on the Cinco de Mayo weekend by spending a Thursday night with us. Ask anyone who’s been to Story Night, you’ll be glad you joined us.
Like a weed popping up through Washington Avenue; like a poorly formed argument on a Facebook post; or like that smell coming from the neighbors, that lingering, mildly annoying odor that is annoying but doesn’t quite amount to illegality, persistence finds its way in our streets, on our computers and in our neighborhoods. But sometimes persistence rewards, either in our efforts or by becoming an unexpected meme, nevertheless.
On March 1 we’ll gather to hear stories of persistence, of never giving up, whether it was for good or for ill. You have friends and neighbors in Kitsap County who know a few things about persistence and they’re going to tell you about it, on stage, in front of a live audience that’s also drinking wine and beer and eating pizza and pub salads.
It’s Story Night, and you have stories to hear. Or maybe tell.
Story Night is not about putting on a skit or performing. It’s about telling a true story, from life, like we are all sitting around a campfire.
The rules for storytellers are these:
About five minutes long
Based on the night’s theme.
If you just want to hear some storytelling, there’s plenty of room for that. The Cloverleaf will sell you good food and drink while you listen and relate.
Come get to know some of your Kitsap neighbors.

Story Night is presented in partnership with the Kitsap Regional Library.
