Open Mic nights are wonderful, and the more that show up in different venues, the easier it is to find the stage for you. This one is apparently a storytelling mic! If you're a storyteller like me, then you can share a comedic story or you can share a journey of difficulty and redemption. You could even talk about how you found five dollars! Thanks to Seven Saints for a new kind of Open Mic in Chambana! "Seven Saints welcomes the first Champaign-Urbana Do Not Submit. The open mic series encourages people from different walks of life to come together each month to connect through the sharing of personal stories in a safe, supportive environment free from pressure, judgment, or a cover charge.
