Cocktails & Conversations: "The Mind, Intelligence, and Reason" at Chelsea Manor


A Cocktails & Conversations event combines

a Manhattan intellectual environment,

a social atmosphere,

and food and drink

for New Yorkers

to imbibe.


How to Attend the Live Event

All members in good standing are welcome to RSVP and attend.

Due to the limited spots at our events,

anyone who has been a no-show for a past event

must pay the $10 no-show fee online

before RSVPing for another event.

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.

    The formula is a success -- rotation, group size, prepared questions and moderator -- thought provoking and thoroughly enjoyable!

    @lily: yes, 21+ @lisa: the rounds are at 7, 8, 9 (first hour is social), so if you show up later, that is no problem. In our 7-year history, we have actually had each of these 3 topics as individual events (actually, 'reason' twice), so tonight will be quite full...

    Is the event for over 21s only?
