  • Carmenita Peoples @ The Hideout!

    You're Being Ridiculous is super excited to celebrate our NINTH ANNIVERSARY at The Hideout! AND ... we're delighted to welcome Carmenita Peoples to YBR to share a story with us and help us celebrate ... learn a little about Carmenita here and get your tickets!

    Carmenita Peoples is a formally trained Montessori educator, financial services officer, and artistic performer who skillfully combines these varied talents to “edutain” audiences. Through multi-faceted presentation, Ms. Peoples uses storytelling, musical improvisation, and poetry to connect and elevate cross-cultural and generation gaps. She also enjoys a ripe-aged whiskey, a nice game of chess and long walks along Lake Shore Drive. 

    What are you most thankful for this year?
    I'm so very thankful to be able to spend time with my mother as she battles cancer. It's been a very rough year and she's still "NOT CURED". I'm realizing it's not the disease that I'm afraid of, any more, I have found a deeper meaning to my own life, what it means to be a daughter, my children, and my career. It's a reminder that there's always so growing to be done! When we give up, the universe answers in kind.
