        stor·y time

noun: storytime
  1. a regular time at which a story is read aloud.
  2. a time when a story is told to a group of assembled people.
    1. Storytime precedes bedtime for some children.
    2. Many public libraries offer storytime on a regular schedule.

Storytime for adults is just that- It’s an hour and a half on a weekend morning to listen as an interesting person reads an interesting thing. After the reader finishes reading there’ll be a discussion and a bit of time for questions with the reader. The reader is announced but their choice of book, newspaper, poems, script, or anything else is kept secret until storytime.

Normally, a few lite snacks, mimosas and bloody mary’s will be served at no cost to guests, but this month we are doing something diffrent.

Interesting Things Read by Interesting People is a monthly event at The Detroit History Club. For the nineth installment, our reader is Salvador Zavala

Sal Zavala loves tacos. He always has. God willing he always will.  A transplant to Michigan, Sal was born and raised in the sunny, taco Mecca of  Los Angeles, California. He moved to Michigan over a decade ago in pursuit of a graduate degree at The University of Michigan and fell in love with Southwest Detroit. For Sal, life's all about the food- He has always had a love of cooking food for others, born from the talents of his Mexican mother and grandmother's recipes. Today he has found a niche in catering traditional street tacos in Metro Detroit. By day, he is the Director of Finance at Detroit’s Eastern Market (The oldest continually operating open-air market in the country). By night, he’s “the Chavo” of “Chavo’s Taco’s”; his guacamole has a cult-like following and his taco pop-ups are a foodies can’t miss at local bars.  For one fantastic “Taco Tuesday”, Sal’s agreed to take a break from building his upcoming taco truck, to join us for a deliciously special - Interesting People Reading Interesting Things (And Eating Tacos).

Sal’s graciously offered to feed everyone dinner, so your price this I.P.R.I.T.’s includes dinner and drinks. As always we won’t know what will be read until that day.
Because The Detroit History Club operates as a members-only club, out of private homes, hidden spaces, and secret locations, you’ll need to join before being able to buy tickets to events. At checkout you’ll be asked if you are already a member; if not, select “New Member.” Membership to The Detroit History Club is five dollars per calendar year.  Each person attending an event must have a membership of their own.  Membership cards may be picked up at the first event you attend as a new member, and new cards are issued at the first event you attend each year.  Parking is on-street and at your own risk (we’ve never had an issue, but the lawyer insists we have the disclaimer).

Detroit History Club events are for persons twenty-one years old and up.  We drink, we swear, we talk about things, and we’d love for you to join us.  Whether you come as a couple, a group, or a singleton, our events are designed to encourage you to make new friends, explore ideas, and learn- all while eating, drinking, dancing, and generally behaving in a way that makes us proud to call ourselves Detroiters. We would like to remind you that this event is taking place in a private home; your respect is greatly appreciated
