Potluck and Poison Ivy is a live dinner and storytelling event in Argenta, Arkansas that invites you to bring your story to the table by sharing a meal and some good ole Southern storytelling. It’s a potluck of people, themes, and ways to tell a story, served with a hearty helping of laughter, Southern exaggerations, and even some unexpected poison ivy. Whether it’s scripted, unscripted, or an open mic storytelling casserole, this is one picnic you don’t want to miss.
