Fun First

The Art of Conversation needs conservation

Everyone Gets 'Paid' - money, advice or training

No 'Job Interviews' - people are spoken 'with' not 'at'

It's not what you wear - it's where you're at

Funny is Seinfeld and the Cookie Monster

Flake is a chocolate. Not something you do.


  • 5 minute Art Speech / entertainment

  • Everyone speaks (equal time) about their non-creative work. ​​

  • Everyone speaks (equal time) about their creative work / interests. ​​

  • Form sub-groups to meet at other times

Drinks at the Bar. Hopefully with Retro Music and a free drink, I'll see what I can hustle.

Cost; free, for now
