The Storytellers

Cameron Pentimone

Cam earned their BFA in Graphic Design from the American Academy of Art in Chicago and is proud to be a Company Member and Graphic Designer with 2nd Story. Previously, they have been a layout designer for the Chicago-based magazine, Newcity, a teaching assistant at the Hyde Park Art Center's summer creativity camps for children, and developed promotional materials for Cabinalysis, a show written and performed by Dr. Lawrence Kerns at the Minnesota and Chicago Fringe Festivals.  When they're not designing, writing, or doodling in their sketchbooks, they can usually be found eating pizza and re-watching episodes of Daria.

About the Neighborhood Series

There is nothing like listening to a good story with great company and sharing drinks and food around the table. For over 17 years, 2nd Story has been offering up just that at venues throughout Chicago and beyond. Instead of finding one single new home for ourselves, we are always on the lookout to sow seeds in a variety of neighborhoods across the city. In pursuit of our vision of fostering community through the experience of sharing stories, we will host shows, workshops, and other events in each neighborhood. If you have a favorite neighborhood venue that you think would be great for 2nd Story, we'd love to hear about it. Drop us a line at info@2ndStory.com!

What to expect, and a little about The Teal Room at Pub 626

The Teal Room at Pub 626 is the backroom of the venue located at 1406 W. Morse Avenue.  There is a private entrance along Glenwood avenue, just north of Morse Avenue.  There is full bar and food service in the backroom, you can check out the menu here.  There is a single-user, gender-neutral bathroom in the event space, as well as multi-user, gender specific bathrooms just outside of the space.  The venue is located just off of the Morse stop on the Redline, and there is also street parking available in the neighborhood (much of it is metered, so take a look around!)
