“Drinking With The Saints” by Bill Frisbie

Drinking With The Saints is a monthly, storytelling salon that mixes “spirits” with the Spirit World. Here, the recipe for brewing deeper connections (with perfect strangers & imperfect friends) is a safe space, true tales, finger foods, and an ice cold glass of… something.

Bill Frisbie has lived in Austin for so long that he remember when Highway 183 got its first traffic light. He is co-host of Drinking With The Saints, and has told (mostly-true) stories at various local venues, including Testify Austin and Hyde Park Theatre. DWTS Facebook
