The New Renaissance Club is a fun, social intellectual - totally cool gathering where people of like minds and meet to socialize, discuss philosophy, social issues, wine, beer and culture. We enjoy learning, socializing and having fun.
Philosophy is Civilization
With the advent of new technology, social media and the desire for everyone to be famous all at once, sophisticated thought, charm and style are falling by the wayside. They are quickly being replaced by 'quick fix' experiences, ones that last a second or two then quickly fade away (think blinking/flashy cellphones).
Modern advertising is now designed to target the primal instincts (sex, excitement, fear) and skip over sophisticated thought, intellect and reason.
The good news is that the New Renaissance is arriving a culture that embraces openness, slow food, enjoyment and civilized thought in a modern, sexy way. . Sophisticated thought, style, culture and uniqueness is the new sexy. At one level it is also about love, about connecting and sharing with others in more genuine ways. Come join our group to discover more.
