Organizers say this month's installment of Story Club: South Side is all about "commiserating about how miserably cold it’s going to be for the next three to six months with true stories about COLD — coldhearted snakes, getting cold feet, being left out in the cold, the cold Chicago wind."

Three professional storytellers will present stories on the theme of "cold," and three open mic participants will also get to take the stage.

Suggested donation is $5. BYOB.
