Looking for another way to warm up the chilly winter nights? Try a candlelit dinner in a cozy dining room, followed by an evening of storytelling in a quaint New England eatery. The Corner House Inn in Center Sandwich, NH, offers storytelling dinners every Thursday night from October to May, and the series has proved to be a popular event.
Now in its 23rd season, the Corner House Inn’s Storytelling Dinner Series is going strong, with a lineup of many fine storytellers from all over New England on its schedule. Each Thursday features a different raconteur, with a different tale to tell!
Guests attending the storytelling event are treated to a full dinner, which includes salad, main course, a glass of wine, dessert, and coffee. The varied menu offers something for everyone, and storytelling begins as soon as the dessert plates are cleared. Dinner is served at 6:30 pm, and the cost is only $19.95 per person—quite a deal for a full evening of relaxation and fun!
Next Thursday’s featured storyteller is Travis Wallace from Fryeburg, Maine. Travis, who has performed at the Corner House Inn many times in the past, is returning after a two-year hiatus. He will be taking a new direction in storytelling and sharing material from his new memoir. He calls the venue his “favorite, by far,” and is looking forward to the audience’s feedback on some “funny stuff” he has unearthed while writing his book.
At the end of May, the season will go out in style with a storytelling gala that showcases a variety of storytellers and their tales. These dinners usually sell out quickly, so reservations are highly recommended.
Unplug for the night and join some local folks for some quality food and old-fashioned entertainment in the picturesque village of Center Sandwich. It’s not far from this favorite Lakes Region resort, and well worth the drive!
