I believe in the power of story. Tales that are shared through and within generations define our heritage, provide us with empathy over transgressions and celebrate our adventures. They are as essential as the food that feeds our bodies. Stories fuel our souls.

So take a seat, eat something, and join in as stories are served around the table.
