The first of TWOC’s new series of storytelling events was an evening of laughter, love, and reflection TWOC’s summer of events kicked off with our new storytelling series: TWOC Tales with Cocktails. More than 30 people from all walks of life gathered together in the cozy atmosphere of legendary hutong venue Soi BaoChao to share, listen, laugh, and ponder.

Seven brave and adventurous souls got up on stage to share with the eager audience their tales based on the themes of six of TWOC’s six recent magazine cover stories: AI/Tech, Debt, Disasters, Meat, Pandemic, and Wine in China. Stories of heartache, humor, reflection, and despair made for a wonderful evening of connections. If you’re curious to know what tales our TWOC readers and writers enjoy sharing, then make sure to come along to our next storytelling event! Details will go up soon, and we encourage both storytellers and listeners.
