L.A. is a spooky town, and not just because of all the serial killers, crazy cults and goths who inhabit it. Everybody’s got a story about some strange encounter, creepy experience or dangerous situation, and that’s just in the mortal world. Add paranormal activity and our city’s many haunted locales, and it’s a recipe for a riveting story time. Macabre Mondays at Chloe’s Speakeasy inside Golden Road Brewery invites guests to share murderous tales, true crime-related yarns and other frightful stories — both of the personal nature and of the overheard variety. Taking place the last Monday of every month, this gathering of dark-minded sharing and wicked spoken word is an all-ages deal so it probably won’t get too graphic, but as with most horrific and historical entertainment, it’s the realism and facts surrounding the sharing that make it effective.
Chloe’s at Golden Road Brewing, 5410 W. San Fernando Road, Glendale; Mon., June 24, 7 p.m.; free. facebook.com/events/2182456791797581.
