The Stoop is one of Baltimore’s favorite spots to hear relatable and often hilarious stories culled from the everyday life moments we all experience. At the series’ next event, the idea is to keep all of that intact, except with mayoral candidates.

Now that the holidays are over, surely we’ve all got lots of wild tales and war stories to tell. And winter is the perfect time for gathering around, and settling in for an evening of being regaled with a good yarn or two. There are plenty of ways to get in your share of The Stoop in the coming weeks– whether you go simply as an audience member, or as a potential storyteller yourself.
Storytelling has always been an integral part of American culture. And while new-fangled technology (you know, motion pictures and the like) certainly did its part to shove storytelling out of the cultural spotlight, it’s been making a big comeback in recent years. If you’re a fan of The Moth podcast, or even programs like This American Life, you know the power that can come from someone simply telling you a story while you just sit back and take it all in. The Stoop Storytelling Series is Baltimore’s own local version of that. Each Stoop evening features a theme, with folks just like you and me (but with a little extra bravery) getting up to tell their own personal, true stories on that theme. And coming up…. Halloween edition, of course.
