THE CRYING BAR: An arrogant student becomes humanized by her local bartender.

THE BOY COULD SURE SWAT THAT BALL: Set in 1955, three menu discuss the botched lynching of a local Black man and if they should end such crimes and change with the times.

THAT OLD FEELING: A older man on a date with woman realizes he promised this woman a second date over twenty-five years ago and never called - what now?

TAKE BACK ZUCCOTTI PARK: An angry wealthy man wants to take back Zuccotti Park from the Move On Wall Street rabble.
