Thanks Milestones!

_IMG1434 Thanks everyone for a great return of the Big Blue Door Jam last night as we packed almost seventy people in the tiny Rapture R2 space for true stories inspired by the theme of ‘Milestones’!

Newcomer David Brents led off with his story of visiting a Mexican whorehouse as a naive seventeen year old.

Debra Weiss was second with her story of a lifelong love of Life Magazine.

Charlie Thornton-Gilliam shared his account of terrible birthdays.

Newcomer Christine Alencar took us into the break with the story of how opposites attract in a Brazilian-Virginia wedding.

Newcomer Shawn Hirabayashi kicked off the second half with the tale of his father’s death.

Yousaf Sajid described his journey into business graduate school.

Elizabeth Derby finished the night sharing how she gradually accepted reality.

It was a close contest but the end of the night the coveted Big Blue Door Jam jam was won by Shawn!

Thanks to Robert Packard on sound, Kirk Martini on the camera (pictures coming soon!), Ryan on the door, and audience judging teams Team Sharp Shooters, Team Door Jam, and Team OK Stupid. Special thanks to everyone at Rapture!
