In the spirit of the great story monologists, Ham Lake is old-school storytelling with humor, insight and intrigue. Pull up a stool and share a beer with Sam Rosen as he becomes the most interesting guy at the bar who tells the coolest stories. This one is about one ordinary evening that turned into the most revelatory night of his life. As the story goes, upon running into an unstable old girlfriend at a party, he quickly realizes that he has been the subject of a ruse and is stranded in the titular town in ice cold weather without a jacket. Mr. Rosen weaves a compelling tale by putting the whole evening into the context of his life, both historically and metaphysically, and always keeping the audience guessing "what happens next?" The story is so outrageous that it must be true.
