Tarot readers, mediums and psychics will often tell you they've heard it all because they HAVE! One of the gifts of teaching and reading tarot is that people confide their deepest secrets and fears. They also feel safe enough to tell you their ghost stories and strange paranormal experiences.
When Alex Haskel, the bar manager of Barrow's Intense Tasting Room, mentioned that he'd love to have a night dedicated to telling spooky stories around the fire pit ... that was all I needed to hear. I gathered my friends and put together this event just in time for Halloween season. Best part? Now, we'll do it every month!
Ghost stories? Craft cocktails? Crackling fire? Yes, please!
We had goosebumps!
From clockwise right, 1. A story of NYC time traveling with the mafia. 2. A harrowing tale of being born dead. 3. Teens in a car, stranger in the road, late at night, never a good mix. 4. Mental institution suicides!
Our youngest storyteller was 10 year old Nico ! He told a spine tingling tale of horror about a walk through the forest and a bloody stump.
Featured Storytellers Heather and Nicholas began and ended our evening and they were fabulous with the tale of a haunted house and spooky upstate NY town.
