Wed March 16 at 7:30 PM, [pls. EMAIL for article & direx]
119 Macdougal St, New York, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
Interested in good conversation? Exploring ideas? Reading the odd article to jumpstart a thoughtful exchange? Then join us for the next Salon—now in Brooklyn—on Wednesday, March 16, 2016.
To: Those of you who've been following along at home (but have yet to peep) and those who have just stumbled across this event (and are cautiously curious), the Salon, now a five-month old, is loosely organized around an article and whatever ideas it provokes.

That means: It's not a debate, it's an exchange of ideas. It's not moderated, it's hosted. Not everyone likes all the articles, and probably not everyone reads them. Some folks talk a lot, some just a little, depending on how their spirit sways. Most of the Salonistas are Mefites, but it's not restricted to Mefites. (So although I'm announcing it here, and welcome Mefites, it's not a Metafilter Salon per se.) Ages range, as do interests, professions, metiers. We've even got a few diehards. Briefly: It's mellow, engaging, civilized. And, yeah, kinda fun.

If you're interested in joining us, please confirm it by emailing me. In your email, please include:
  1. an RSVP if you know right now this is for you!
  2. a brief description of yourself (whatever that means to you), so I have some faint notion of who you are.

If you can join us, I'll email back the article for the evening and directions to the meeting. If you want to be emailed every time we have an event, I can also add your name to the Master List. Finally, yes, please feel free to bring a friend if you think they'd enjoy it. (Just let me know when you RSVP.)

If you want to know more about the Salon, the roots of its New York incarnation are described on this page.

I hope to see you there.

I swear I will make it to another of these, but I'm not going to be in NYC for this one.
