Tales and Ales was created from a mere spark of an idea — to gather with a few friends to swap funny, inspiring, quirky or mind-changing stories. Fueled by the overwhelming generosity and just plain excitement of the DC metro community, it's quickly become a curated, reoccurring, must-attend storytelling show.
The mission is to create meaningful intersections through the power of true storytelling, with some of the region's best beer in hand. And while we're at it, we're raising money at each event for nonprofit organizations doing life-changing, story-worthy work in our community.
Friday, Oct 22 | 6:30-9 pm
A line up of seven storytellers sharing the funny, the quirky, the heart-felt and everything in between.
Come early to enjoy live music from Nathaniel Davis, food trucks, and drinks. | Pre-show festivities begin at 6:15 pm; show begins at 7 pm.
Proceeds benefit Loudoun Friends of Mental Health.
