"You either hang on to your morals and die,
or do everything you need to survive."
- Joel, The Last of Us
"Imagine that you are creating
a fabric of human destiny
with the object of making men
happy in the end,
giving them peace and rest at last,
but that it was essential and inevitable
to torture to death
only one tiny creature -
that baby beating its breast with its fist,
for instance -
and to found that edifice
on its unavenged tears:
would you consent
to be the architect
on those conditions?
and tell me the truth!"
"No, I wouldn't consent,"
said Alyosha softly.
- The Brothers Karamazov

an upscale Manhattan intellectual environment,
and a social atmosphere for New Yorkers
to get together, mingle, and discuss interesting topics.
How to Attend the Live Event
All members in good standing are welcome to RSVP and attend.
Due to the limited number of spots,
past no-shows must pay the $10 no-show fee online
before RSVPing for this event.
Members with a 'no-show' title next to their RSVP
will have their RSVP removed without notice.
See our Attendance Policy for details.
Over the course of the evening, members gather in small groups for discussions. Between each discussion round, everyone socializes and has a chance to order food/drink. With a chance to join several groups throughout the event, attendees have a chance to meet many others while engaging in spirited debates in a highly social atmosphere.
This is *not* a typical meet-and-greet open social,
this is a "Cocktails & Conversations"-styled event
with three rounds of active and challenging debates.
It will be crowded, it will be edgy, it will be fun -
we ask everyone to keep noise levels down
and participate in all discussions.
