Open Mic Night Rules

New menu items and themes will change each month, and be announced before the 1st of the new month. We will post Open Mic submissions on the Friday of the week we receive them. The stories will be posted in the Lounge section of the website until the next month’s theme.

For reminders, you can subscribe by visiting the Reservations page.

We welcome all stories in any genre, and will publish them on a first-come, first-served basis. To be considered, your story must:

  • Mention Vine & Bean or Vine & Bean Cafe. In either instance, it is in reference to a cafe.
  • Be between 500-2500 words.
  • Be your original work.
  • Be appropriate for general audiences up to PG-13.
  • Adhere to the Rules of Conduct.

If your story does not follow these guidelines, we will not be able to post it.

You retain the copyright to your work. By submitting to Vine & Bean, you give the website permission to post it in the Lounge and/or reproduce the content in an e-newsletter form. You understand that the website is public, and your story may receive unsolicited comments and/or be publicly shared by others.

You may submit an image to go with your story, and we will post it with your story as long as it adheres to the Rules of Conduct.

We reserve the right to remove your story from the website at any time.

Thank you for keeping Vine & Bean a happy and fun environment!
