Bear witness to the magic of the Bay Area’s best folk-tellers as they share stories from around the globe while you dine on an eclectic menu prepared by Fogcutter-SF’s Guillermo Perez (formerly of Ame). Guillermo’s work is inspired by culturally varied food traditions and has developed a menu that plays off the metaphoric and sensual detail of each story.
You must buy your ticket ahead of time so don’t wait – get it now! Tickets include a five course meal served in tandem with the live show and all service and gratuity. BYOB is not only allowed, but encouraged!

Storyteller Cassie Cushing brings to life traditional stories for adult and young adult audiences.
Ancient Myths and Folktales reverberate with time-tested messages – understandings of life, love, identity and adventure. Stories, in general, are for everyone, but some are not meant for little ears. So, take a night off, leave the children at home, and come to a different, but nonetheless, real world of (sometimes) dark discoveries and dazzling adventures.
Cassie loves the way stories bring people together. She especially loves to tell old stories – myths and folktales that used to exist in an oral culture. As a coffee professional and devotee for 10 years, she is working towards opening a coffee shop that will feature regular storytelling events.
