Espresso Yourself night, every first Tuesday starting at 6:00 p.m. SLT at The Pen, located in the heart of Bay City – Mashpee, just off Route 66!
What is “Espresso Yourself?” It’s a chance to take your spot on the stage and share. Tell a joke, share your poetry, read a chapter from your favorite book, sing a song. Just share! Voice or Text. Talent not required, but passion is mandatory. Also, no mimes.
The key here is to participate.
How can you participate?
Just choose an item off our menu!
Our main stock in trade: Read a poem. Poetry is always encouraged at the pen. Share one of your own, or one by someone else. Read it on voice or type it out. You can even pre-record some sound files if you want to get really inventive.
Share a favorite story. Could be something you’ve experienced that you want to share. Could be a story out of a book that makes you think or that you just enjoy. Maybe it’s a story of your own, too, that you wish to share. All is encouraged.
3. CAFFÉ AU LAIT
Share a picture of something you’ve built recently – or something you’ve built in the past – tell us about it, what were the challenges? What was fun? Share the experience.
4. CAFFÉ AMERICANO
Free Advice. Tell Linden Lab how to fix Second Life, or tell us how to use it! This is soapbox time! Rant, rave, share.
5. CAFFÉ MOCHA
I read the news today: tell us something you read in the newspaper/saw on the telly/spotted online that caught your eye. Tell us what’s going on!
6. CAFFÉ MACCHIATO
Random beauty! Show us a photo of something that caught your eye. Share something of beauty and tell us about it. Maybe it’s a pretty thing from your first life, or maybe it’s a gorgeous place in here.
7. CAFFÉ CORRETTO
Surprise us: hand puppets,. juggling, wacky gags, etc.! Do something different, weird, and wild. Delight the audience by going outside the box.
Just want to hang out? We’ll let you can do that too: but you can still talk, still interact, and still be a part of the show. Everyone is a participant, even if you might not realize it.
Also, why not toss a few bones in the ol’ tip jar, too, or buy a fresh cuppa? It helps keep the lights on.
