2010 marks the return of the Dime-Offs. Mark your calendars for the second Tuesdays of the month. Dime-Offs will be at UCSD’s The Loft. Themes will be posted on the website and in the newsletter each month. January’s themes are: teeth and misunderstanding.
Join DimeStories on January 12 at 8pm to kick-off the Dime-Off!
The Ruby Room worked out splendidly for the crowd of over 50 this November. Looks like it’s going to work out just fine. For those of you stuck over in the hidey spot around the corner, next month we are going to rearrange the set up of the mic, so those on the balcony can see and hear all the goings on.
Check out the San Diego page under Live Events on this website for the audience selected pieces posted this month! Did you make the cut? We have some fine selections. Every month you have a chance to get your piece posted as well. Just polish til it shines!
Let us know what you think of the Ruby Room, or anything else that’s on your mind, by leaving a comment below. We love hearing from you.
