    Story District is THE place to be. And it’s our NEW NAME!  Our big kickoff party will be on August 1, 2015 at Town Danceboutique (home of our monthly show since Sept 2009). It’s going to be off the chain -- with artists, community partners, performances, booze, on-site t-shirt screen printing by Soul & Ink (bring your own T or buy one there), dancing and every possible coming-of-age celebration we can think of rolled into one epic night. FREE admittance w/RSVP

    A decade ago, SpeakeasyDC was the perfect name for a monthly open mic storytelling series at a BYOB jazz club – small and slightly seedy, risky and fun. It's a name that has served us well. Ten years later, however, we have expanded well beyond the confines of a little bar and we hope our new name reflects how much we’ve grown, grown up, and have made a mark on the character and quality of life across all parts of the city, the region, and beyond.  We hope all of you -- our SpeakeasyDC story-loving peeps --  can make it to celebrate the beginning of our next chapter.
