How About Dat!

Live at Artichoke Music on May 6th, 2023

Presented by Portland Storytellers’ Guild

How about dat! Life is full of surprising and confusing moments. All the amazing ways that we are awed, amazed, and astonished by people, and what they decide to do!

Some struggles leave us exhausted, some invigorated. Not to mention the natural world with it’s 50 foot waves, and the quiet of a hummingbird both entrancing us. In the end, with a little perspective, we can see how they fit in with the whole, and we might say, “How about dat?!”

Three seasoned storytellers bring their own ‘How About Dat!’ moments to life on the Artichoke Cafe Stage. Come prepared to laugh, be amazed, and perhaps to ask, ’Did that really happen?!’ Buckle up, it’ll be a wild ride!
