Our popular networking/social/icebreaker segment will still be from 6pm – 7.30pm. Take this time to arrive and make yourself comfortable. No walk-ins after that, as we like to conduct the Q&A/Presentation/fundraiser segment without interruption. ~ Meet a new wave of Classical Liberals, Individualists and Free-thinkers (or however you identify yourself) as we defy the tide of statism and renew the quest for liberty.

  • 2018 Early Spring Afterwork Catch-up
    WHAT: We're coming out of hibernation early to welcome previous first-timers and new members in this very casual afterwork event at our spacious, conveniently located midtown venue. Think of the evening as an appetizer/sampler to our full red carpet version in Spring. Mix and mingle with friendly, Liberty-minded NY'ers. HOW TO FIND US: Head downstairs to the lower level. Look for our symbol, the Griffin. TALK: In light of recent events and fever-pitched arguments for and against the 2nd Amendment, we will postpone our previously planned talks to give Indie R. members a crash course on Federal and New York State's existing gun control laws. Hear from members who are licensed gun owners in New York State and learn about their regulatory experiences with Concealed and Carry. This segment will run 20 mins. and is meant to help you give an informed opinion on the issue. What to bring: A smile, firm handshake...and business cards if you like to stay in touch. More Evening Details to follow.
