Middlebury Underground and Bundle invite you to bring your food stories to the table in Memorable Dishes, a free, curated, open-mic event on Friday, November 1 from 5:30-7pm. Hosted at Bundle, the pop-up event space at 51 Main Street in Middlebury, the evening kicks off a new storytelling series that asks you to dig deep into your sense memories and tell your best 5-minute tale. Memorable Dishes is FREE and open to everyone. Please consider bringing a food donation for HOPE.
Complimentary local bites will tantalize your taste buds while stories stoke your appetite. Adult beverages from Drop-In Brewing and Lincoln Peak available for purchase, alongside free, local apple cider.
Story inspiration & guidelines:
Food is fuel, culture, religion, custom, adventure. Just one bite can bring back a distant memory or connect us with a loved one. Maybe your story explores the history of Nona’s pasta or conjures an unforgettable meal while traveling. Perhaps you’ll never forget that dish you ate repeatedly as a poor college student, or the first meal you devoured after you gave birth to a child.
Whatever the flavor of your story, we want to hear it. Memorable Dishes will kick off with several selected stories, then ‘pass the mic’ to others who would like to share. To sign up and send a summary of your 5-minute narrative, please write firstname.lastname@example.org.
