Venue Scouting

As I mentioned in my last video blog, searching for a venue is one of the most difficult tasks as a producer!  I'm SO SO SO close to booking a space for the upcoming storytelling event, but I need to close the deal so that I can start the search for talent!  It's super frustrating trying to find a balance between being too pushy and not being pushy enough.  I don't want to bug the venue manager to the point where they don't want to work with me, but I also don't want them to forget about me while they take they sweet-ass time!  You would think these venues would want my business, but I suppose the rest of the city is also trying to reserve all of the same places!  I've almost secured a bar, though, so I want you all to keep an eye out for when I post an ad looking for story submissions!!!  P.S.  Sorry I missed last week's blog, but I was trying to nail down this darn venue!
