MAY Death Cafe 5-21-14

LOCATION: Death Café meets at China Sun, 108 West 39th Street, between Avenue of the Americas & Broadway. In exchange for your Paypal payment of $11, we enjoy China Sun's carpeted private balcony, endless pots of tea and small plates of savory foods (such as scallion pancakes, vegetable soup with noodles and fresh oranges). If you order other dishes at China Sun, that separate check becomes your responsibility.

Note: China Fun's second story balcony is not handicapped-accessible.


No-Shows and Wanna-Be-There(s):

  1. If you are not coming, even if it's a last minute decision, please have the courtesy of RSVP-ing "NO" on our page so your seat can be filled by someone who really wants to be here.
  2. If you discover this Meetup is full by the time you RSVP, no worries. We have a waiting list deployed and attendance has been expanded to 50, so there will always be that random cancellation.

If you're looking for a Death Café closer to home (or a more structured version where the host leads the conversation), check out our Meetup page entitled "All NYC Death Cafés by Location" to join Death Cafés located in other parts of the city.


"OVERHEARD NUGGETS": If you hear some really memorable things said or overheard at Death Café, please race home to write it down on our Facebook page. Or email your hosts through so we can capture it on our Overheard Nuggets page.


FACEBOOK: Have you seen some of the brain-sharpening items now coming through the Death Café Facebook page?

    I traveled 120 miles to be at Death Cafe for 90 minutes and it was entirely worthwhile! I am enormously grateful for the efforts of Audrey and Nancy and the members of the gathering for making possible an opportunity to discuss a subject so very much hidden in the shadows.
    The exceptional tenderness of everyone at the table opened my heart, which has been broken deeply during these past 2 years. This broken heart began to heal yesterday, because there were many other open hearted warriors to support and soothe it.
    Deby and I have discussed starting a Death Cafe out in East Hampton and invite you all to take a hike eastward when we get going!
    With gratitude,

    This is the most important group I can think of. Nancy & Audry are very helpful and open. I would suggest "a bit more structure" for the newcomer.

    Was my first Death Café Meetup. I had no expectations. There were some excellent suggestions, a terrific group of people. I will go back!
