So you know, Jesse Brown’s will close at 6PM today (May 25, 2015) in honor of Memorial Day. Many thanks to all who’ve served our country, and their families.
We have an incredible lineup of storyteller’s for Thursday, May 21 here at Jesse Brown’s! This is always one of our favorite get-togethers, and the crowd – and the storytellers themselves – seem to get better and better with each turn.
This go round, we’ll welcome our friend Mike Thomas with his story, “Honey on Point: A Dog’s Legacy of Friendship”. If you’ve ever had a dog, then you know what kind of impact they can have on their person. Well, Mike’s managed to wrap his arms around that storyline in a touching, heart-tugging vignette we can’t wait for you to hear. Spoiler alert! Better bring the Kleenex, folks.
So many religions trace their history to the Holy Land, it’s one of the most-visited spots on the globe. A trip to this part of the world was particularly poignant for our man, Ted Wright. His story, “A Visit to Israel: Adventures From the Past and Into the Future,” is one man’s personal – and professional take – on touring these historical sites.
Mohammed Idlibi is a genuine globetrotter. From his “base camp” here in Charlotte, he’s traveled the world to run, climb, hike – you name it! No matter how long or far you travel, you have to prepare for the unexpected. Mohammed’s story, “27 Days to the Summit of Denali”, is testament to the iron will it takes to improvise, adapt, and overcome barriers to a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Like we said, quite the lineup! We’ll see you Thursday. Snacks and beer on us!
A one-of-a-kind, and perhaps once-in-a-lifetime, kind of adventure awaits! Up for a drive across central Europe, the Middle East, and China? Travel the historic and iconic Silk Road with the folks from Overland Adventures beginning this summer. Jesse Brown’s hosts a get-together this Wednesday at 6PM with a presentation and slide show from this 20,ooo kilometer trek – and what it takes for you to be a part of the story!
