GrownUp StoryTime: A January To Remember

It may be cold outside but there is a heartwarming community of storytellers getting ready for the next show. Join Boston’s GrownUp StoryTime at Aeronaut Brewing Company 7pm on Wednesday January 24th.

Here’s the deal: GrownUp Storytime is an hour of funny, heartwarming, crazy, amazing stories read aloud. Created by the original BooTown in Houston and now in Boston.

Remember storytime before bedtime? Well this is just like that only replace a loved one with a weird stranger, warm milk with craft brews and your bedroom with Aeronaut’s tap room. The best part is that you don’t have to go to sleep afterward – cause we’re all grown-up now!

They take short short (fact, fiction, and everything in between) stories written by the community, hand them to local performers, and hilarity and/or poignant storytelling ensues. Come enjoy a beer and listen to some great stories!

True Lies and False Facts: A Questionable Tour of Boston

Join Boston By Foot for a unique walking tour of Boston that keeps participants on their toes. Called True Lies & False Facts, this questionable tour starts at the Boylston T Stop and winds its way around Chinatown and the Theater District. Lasting just over an hour, the tour will tell some wild and amazing stories about local characters and unlikely events – some of which are true and others are not. Developed as a fun way to celebrate April Fools Day, the tour is meant to test participants’ knowledge of history and ability to separate the truth from fiction. After the tour, participants are invited to come to Explorateur to grab a drink at a cash bar, enjoy some snacks, and get the real skinny on if what they heard was fact or fiction. Boston By Foot has some nice prizes for those who guess best.

Meet your guide at the corner of Boylston and Tremont Streets, outside the inbound entrance to the Boylston Street MBTA Station on the Green Line.

Tour lasts 90 minutes; plan to stay at the restaurant for another thirty minutes to learn the answers.
