Start your Valentines month off right

…with tales from the dark side of dating. It’s Not Me, It’s You takes place tonight at the Bagdad Theater (3702 SE Hawthorne) and celebrates all that is awkward, bad and downright shameful about dating. An antidote for the upcoming V-Day or a reason to be grateful for your perfect little love muffin, these storytellers have some real tales to spin. And they are all devastastingly true. Even better, I make a brief appearance in one. Let’s see if you can guess which…

We’ve all had them: dates that go terribly awry. An evening of personal stories told live onstage, unscripted, just telling you the painful truth. You’ll leave either feeling grateful for your current relationship or with the realization that being single isn’t so bad after all.
Storytellers include:
Jeff Cogen, Multnomah County Commissioner
Tara Dublin, fabulous gal about town
Jimmy Radosta, essayist
Courtenay Hameister, host of Live Wire and True Stories
Mark Weiner, political consultant
Aaron Mesh, film critic for Willamette Week
Caryn Brooks, Portland writer, critic, kvetcher
Roey Thorpe, political activist
Emceed by Karol Collymore and LeAnn Locher

Sponsored by Willamette Week. Tickets are $15 available through Ticketmaster (advance only) or at the Bagdad or Crystal Ballroom box offices. This is a fundraiser for
Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon, which works to keep Oregon a pro-choice state.

It’s a perfect pre-Valentine’s Day date, or an antidote to the holiday, since you will leave either feeling grateful for your current relationship or like it’s not so bad being single after all!
