+++++++++++++++++

The Kitchen Sisters and our 92 year-old muse of the lanes, Amazing Grace Mulloy, invite you to join us at Mission Bowling Club in San Francisco, next Thursday evening, June 2 for a night of bowling, food, drink, music and podcast superstars to support the work of The Kitchen Sisters.

BUY TICKETS HERE

If you came last year, and got some hot tips from Grace, come see how you improved since she shared her secrets. If you missed last year here's a chance to bowl your brains out or just hang out and eat, drink and watch the NBA Finals with some of the Bay Area’s finest.

The Kitchen Sisters are independent producers and we raise all our own funding. Last year’s Bowling with Grace fundraiser helped create the new season of Hidden Kitchens stories coming to NPR's Morning Edition this summer – Kimchi Diplomacy: War & Peace & Food. It also sparked our Radiotopia podcast, Fugitive Waves and our deep bench of remarkable interns who will be roaming the lanes that night.

Delight in the fried chicken and burgers of Mission Bowling, the tarts and cakes of Tartine, the holy elixirs from St. George Spirits, the deep wines of Scribe, the slap your brains out cheeses from Cowgirl Creamery, the Chez Panisse Farmhouse Ale and so much more.

Bowling with Grace {The Legend Continues} is sponsored by AMY’s and EVENTBRITE. Deep thanks to both.

We hope you'll come join The Kitchen Sisters and Celebrity Bowlers: Nobel Laureate Kary Mullis, Roman Mars, Renée Montagne, Alice Waters, Thao Nguyen, Amy Tan, Armistead Maupin, Wendy MacNaughton, Caroline Paul, Ayelet Waldman, Jeannette Etheredge, Mark Buell, Randy Thom, Terry Zwigoff, Laura Sydell, John Vanderslice, Youth Radio & More.

Building community through bowling (and storytelling).

Begin with an overview of the rapidly changing audio and podcast landscape.

Finish the intensive with the start of your own audio project, either a public radio-style news segment (like All Things Considered), an interview (like Fresh Air or WTF with Marc Maron), or a non-narrated creative piece (like The Kitchen Sisters).
