After errant fire sprinklers doused our home in the Ohio City Room at Market Garden Brewery, we found ourselves in thematically-appropriate foreign territory upstairs. Featured speaker Sarah Wilson-Jones introduced us to her particular brand of magical thinking, while audience members regaled us with stories of the universality of forensic DNA and messing with teachers, twin-style.
Whether getting lost (for various reasons) in foreign countries, or getting lost in the joy of running, each audience member’s story explored the other-worldly feeling of being on foreign ground. Featured speaker Rory O’Malley closed the night with a rousing, tear-inducing origin tale that brought him to Ireland and end as a love letter to Cleveland.
