The Moth, known for their storytelling events, is in L.A. tomorrow evening, August 3, for a night of "Good Food," where the words will be about what we eat and why we eat it, just like the focus of the weekly eat-centric KCRW radio show itself. The show is happening at Zanzibar in Santa Monica.

This night of true stories told in person without the aid of notes or scripts, where the 10 people telling tales are chosen by pulling names of willing attendees out of a hat--so you could wind up being the star.

Storytellers will have a five-minute slot on stage to talk about food, in any of its forms: "Secret ingredients, recipe swaps, vittles, grub , cuisine. Street vendors and five star chefs. Tales of daily bread, broth and beyond," touts Good Food. Judges will determine if your story, like the glaze on the best donut you ever ate, sticks. Just don't talk with your mouth full!

Doors open at 6:45pm; Stories begin on stage 7:30pm. Seating is limited, so early arrival is encouraged. Tickets are $8 at the door (no advanced ticketing).
