Dime-Off UCSD Kick-Off

This Tuesday, January 12th at 8pm, the Dime-Off starts its UCSD kick-off event.  You don’t have to be a student to compete, you just have to write the best damn story to the theme, “Teeth” OR “Misunderstanding”.  You will be judged by your peers.  Check out Live Events Dime-Off San Diego for more details on how it works.  If you’re chicken, but you think you might like to see how it’s done, come just to listen.  But be prepared for blood and sweat splattering from inside the ring.  Or volunteer to be a judge!  Just ask us at the door and we’ll supply you with official status.  $5 entrance, students pay-as-you-can.

January Dime-Off Themes available!

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!
