Dharma Drink @ Rubin Museum of Art (+ Art Chat Upstairs in the Exhibits)



Ticket Link (entry to the Rubin museum on Friday evenings after 6 pm is free. Make sure you get the $0 ticket).

Art Chat - If you're up for chatting about Buddhist art, below is our tentative schedule. Of course, you are also welcome to hang out at the Cafe Serai lounge!

6:30 pm - 7:30 pm = Meet, drink and socialize by the bar downstairs

7:30 pm - 8:15 pm = Walk upstairs to the museum to chat over the art that has a wealth of historic and philosophical information - stemming from the geographies of Himalayas and Tibet. We will chat and discuss as we walk around absorbing in the beauty and background of all that art. During this time, we will also sit for a couple of minutes in the small temple within the museum that has a serene Tibetan atmosphere with Buddha's statue in it.

8:15 pm - 8:45 pm = We will come downstairs, wrap up and some of us will head to dinner nearby (but this dinner is not part of the meetup). But those hungry are welcome to join :)

A great way to get Dharma connected in New York!

For people interested in Buddhism or meditation or just leading a kinder life who are up for meeting like minded people.

Dharma Drink is now Self Service!

Look for the “Dharma Drink” sign or ask the staff, we are generally at the same spot next to the stairs but sometime we are at other locations due to special museum activities.

Just show up and see what happens - just like if you were hanging out meeting other Buddhists randomly in Kathamandu or India. And don't take the RSVP too seriously - people are coming now who don't RSVP. The word is getting out....

Everyone is invited! Dharma Drink is all about building community amongst the Buddhist and like minded crowd in New York City. Greg the founder of Dharma Drink: "I was inspired to start Dharma Drink by hanging out with all of the great students of all of the different lamas in Kathmandu - Kagyu, Nyingma, Sakya, Gelugpa - totally Rimey (also Zen, Thai, Theravadan, yoga travelers, and the curious - just about everyone!). We all became great friends and learned from each other." We're there every Friday night - see you there.

Motivation: To make the Rubin Museum Lounge on Friday night the Buddhist and like minded hang-out spot in New York.

Who: ALL ARE INVITED. Feel free to spread the word. The more, the merrier.

Time: 6:30-?pm

Date: Every Friday - like clockwork

Place: Rubin Museum Lounge, 17th Street and 7th Avenue

How to find us: Look for a table with the small sign "Dharma Drink" + Lounge staff will know where we are.
