Thanks everyone for a great Big Blue Door Jam Thursday night at Milli Joe with true stories inspired by the theme of ‘Learning Curves.’ It was our last ever Big Blue Door Jam in the current format and the night had a suitably intimate feel. Jen and I are so grateful to everyone who has been a part of the Big Blue Door Jam. We ran the show monthly for Big Blue Door’s first two seasons, and ran a slightly shortened version for the first half of our third season. Without the Jam we wouldn’t be able to do all the other things we’ve been able to do. Big Blue Door is still committed to true stories and we’re looking forward to lots of storytelling activity in the months ahead. Stay tuned!
Laura Ingles led off with a tale of local dating trials.
Newcomer Melissa Wender shared the story of a flat tire and her consumer conversion.
Clare Terni described learning to drive a stick shift in South Africa.
Newcomer Jeanne Lynch took us into the break with the culture shock of canning tomatoes in Buckingham.
After intermission Charlie Thornton-Gilliam told us of running a race as part of a family team.
Browning Porter finished the night with an awkward blind date set up by his dad with a woman who had a crush on him.
It was a close contest but the end of the night the coveted Big Blue Door Jam jam was won by Browning!
Thanks to Lewis Reining on sound, audience judging teams Team Totally Unbiased, Team Judgenauts, and Team OK Stupid.
Special thanks to everyone at Milli Joe!
