What we're about

I thought meeting over coffee / tea would be a simple way to make new friends. Each month, we'll host an event at a coffee shop in the city and have a conversation over an interesting topic. Everyone will have an opportunity to share their thoughts and contribute to the discussion. Occasionally there will be other types of events - brunches, walks and museums posted too.

Details: Trained in the art of thangka painting, Tsherin Sherpa (born in Kathmandu, 1968) is regarded as one of Nepal’s foremost contemporary artists. For the Biennale Arte 2022, he will collaborate with artists across the country to draw upon materials from a shared history and incorporate accounts encoded in oral cultures, woven languages, and quotidian rituals to implicate an intersectional and intertwined past that problematizes contradictory conceptualizations of Nepal as well as the broader Himalayan region.

Art Exhibits in Tribeca

Needs a location

Join us as we check out two art exhibits in Tribeca. The first being 'Gone Was the Glow' at the 1969 Gallery. It focuses on nostalgia, loss, and unrequited love — all of the things that make us human. You can read more information concerning this gallery, here.

The second exhibit features sculptures by Scott LaForge, that are constructed from found objects (cigarette packs, old brushes, linen, combs, wood, wire, liquor bottles) that are painted over. The exhibit is free and located on the 6th floor of the Theodore in Tribeca.

Here's an article in AMNY that interviews Scott LaForge about his latest work.

Afterward we can have coffee at Blue Bottle Coffee located nearby. If you need to get in contact, my # is[masked]

Needs a location

Join us for a tradition unlike any other as we go play mini golf at Pier 25 in Hudson River Park. Afterward, we could grab food at a restaurant called Bubby's nearby.
