Cocktails & Conversations - Tenth Annual Philosophy of Sex: Gender Wars

UPDATE: 

First Round: Feminism

Second Round: Gender Diversity

Third Round: Boys & Girls

Socialize in the main room or join in on the hourly discussions in the back rooms.

Join us on Friday, August 8th for "Cocktails and Conversations" at 49 Grove. This free monthly event combines open socializing all evening (in the main room) with provocative and intellectual discussions held each hour - at 7, 8, and 9 PM (in the three ancillary rooms). Feel free to engage in challenging debate or to just hang out and socialize - your choice!

Our Tenth Annual "Philosophy of Sex" - an evening of discussions of gender politics, sexual orientation, relations, fairness, identity, and influences. Topics include wars on women and men, definitions of marriage, gender rights in the US and around the world, Hobby Lobby, feminism, identity politics, cultural influences and trends, and more.

49 Grove is an upscale nightclub in the West Village (on Grove Street near the Christopher Street/Sheridan Square Station). We have the entire venue reserved for this event.

For the evening, we will have lists of challenging topics for each small group to pick from and discuss.

A Cocktails & Conversations event combines food and drink, a casual Manhattan intellectual environment, and a social atmosphere for New Yorkers to get together, mingle, and discuss interesting topics.

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" event with three rounds of active and challenging debates. It will be crowded, it will be edgy - you can participate in discussions or socialize in the front room.

    I think your comment is harsh and unappreciative. In life, there's always room for improvement. You're welcome to live up your own challenge... if you can:)

    I think this is an important brief essay about feminism so folks are arguing based on what it (or rather feminismS) might actually be....fyi, the author did not choose the word "delusions" in the title. I am not looking to have a discussion about it online, save it for tonight, I just wanted to add a resource to John’s list above.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
