everyone joins together into new groups for each round.

"For beauty is nothing

but the beginning of terror,

which we still are just able to endure,

and we are are so awed because

it serenely disdains to annihilate us.

Every angel is terrifying."

Rainer Maria Rilke

Join us for food, drinks, and discussions at Harley's Smokeshack (formerly Irish Rogue).

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.
