Ikea on Black Friday, Christmas Eve at a meditation retreat, New Year’s Eve on Y2K, why duct tape is an awesome Christmas gift and candy necklaces are not…. this is just a sample of the stories that were shared at the Merry Mayhem show on December 16 at InsideOut. Many thanks to our performers—Steven Holl, Kristy Snyder, Jenifer Strauss, Timothy Grey, Elon Cameron, Josh Thomas, Christal Frost, Dan Treul, and Karen Stein—and our musical guests, the Fresh Trio!

Next up: Meet Here:Say at the Water Cooler (tales of workplace woe) on January 20. See you there!
