Drink wine (or beer or soda or flavored water or even coffee). Discuss with friends. Showtime starts at 7:30. We'll watch the first Talk and then break for 15 minutes or so to discuss it, refresh drinks, etc. Then we'll watch the second Talk; when its finished we can discuss the second Talk, compare/contrast the two Talks, refresh drinks, go potty, etc. Then no more videos, just socializing. :) Come meet friends and #LiveBetter. The specific Talks will be a surprise, but they will both relate to the theme.
Come explore one of the most beautiful cities in the state as we tour wineries on the Old Mission Peninsula, crawl through tunnels in the Old State Hospital, and catch a flick at the recently renovated State Theater or Bijou Theater. We will carpool to Traverse City and discuss the particulars of what additional things each person wants to do on the way there. If you sign up for this event, a member will reach out to you in order to ensure that you are ready for the trip as far as lodging and expectations go. The event is *not* free. You are expected to pay for lodging, your share of the gas, and potential activities. If you have any questions, please contact: Austin phone: (248)[masked] email: [masked]
