READ- THINK- DRINK- DEBATE
Back in the day, the intellectual elite would gather in the salon of a friend, sip sherry from a snifter, and debate the most current political, economic and literary topics.
These days, we look for 2-for-1 happy hour deals, scarf down nachos and discuss the Kardashians. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Join Money Moxie and several of your brightest friends at a Summer Salon—a ‘smart happy hour’ for people who want more than just a drink and a chat. Come weigh in on important topics and meet some cool peeps.
The concept is simple: during each session, we cover a particular topic –like health care, financial reform, the federal debt or the European crisis. Lena Rizkallah, founder of Money Moxie, an attorney and a professional speaker & writer for the financial industry, will first provide a synopsis of each topic and pose questions to the group. Then, she’ll moderate the session while attendees weigh in on the topic of the day. Others not making a point will be sipping on beer, contemplating their own opinions. But not thinking about the Kardashians.
If you sign up for a Salon, you’ll be assigned three blogs, articles or commentary on the topic, which should to be read prior to the Salon. This way, everyone arrives at the Salon ready to discuss (and drink).
$25 and includes beer/wine/snacks. Summer Salons will be held at Gotham Glow Salon at 1123 Broadway corner of 25th Street in the Flatiron District. 7-9pm. Topics below:
