There are certain things that are fundamental to human fulfillment. The essence of these needs is captured in the phrase 'to live, to love, to learn, to leave a legacy'. The need to live is our physical need for such things as food, clothing, shelter, economical well-being, health. The need to love is our social need to relate to other people, to belong, to love and to be loved. The need to learn is our mental need to develop and to grow. And the need to leave a legacy is our spiritual need to have a sense of meaning, purpose, personal congruence, and contribution.

- Stephen R. Covey

The happiness that is genuinely satisfying is accompanied by the fullest exercise of our faculties and the fullest realization of the world in which we live.

- Bertrand Russell

A man may fulfill the object of his existence by asking a question he cannot answer, and attempting a task he cannot achieve.

- Oliver Wendell Holmes

49 Grove is well-known for its

Specialty Cocktail and Food Menu (PDF) (

and they are offering all specialty cocktails

at half-price all evening for this event

We have short social breaks between rounds.

To meet and debate with many friends (old & new),

everyone joins together into new groups for each round.

Join us for food, drinks, and discussions.

A New York Philosophy event combines food and drink,

an upscale 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"-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.

Hope You Can Join Us!
