Idaho Street in downtown Boise. Featured storytellers Jocelyn Robertson, Niki Mathews, and Robert and Margaret Scott serve up true stories on the theme, told live on stage and without notes, followed by an open story slam. Musician Dan Costello performs, and Emma Arnold hosts the night.

The Scotts find themselves at a fork at the end of the artic road. The featured storytellers receive prizes from Bittercreek/Red Feather, Boise Co-Op, Fawn and Foal, and Story Story Night.
After an intermission with live music, an open story slam starts. In the story slam, names are drawn from a hat, and the chosen few have 5 minutes to tell a true story on the theme.
