Picnic In the Park

When: Sunday, June 17, 2018 @ 6:30PM

Where: Madison Square Park. Meet at the fountain next to Shake Shack.

FREE | Bring Your Own Food (BYOF)

The best conversations happen around food. That's why we are hosting a creative meet-up / informal community dinner in New York City on June 17th. Together, we will share food while we dive into conversations around creativity and hopefully build new relationships that will carry far beyond the evening itself. Our hope is that it will be a night of laughter, celebration and inspiration. We know you will leave connected to others and inspired to pursue new opportunities. Bring your own food or get Shake Shack (like we will be) and come hang out in the park with the community on June 17!

Along with time together over food, we chose Madison Square Park as it also presents a great location for creativity. Feel free to bring a camera, musical instrument, or anything else that inspires you and we look forward to the impromptu creativity that will take place following dinner as the sun begins to set. Hosts / Co-hosts for the night include Scott Bakken (@scottcbakken), Paul Tellefsen (@technopaul), Jonathan Zoeteman (@jonathanzoeteman), Dave Lieske (@davey_gravy), and Liza Herlands (@lizaherlands_). We're also excited to have creative friends Christian Watson (@1924house), Matt Ferriera (@matt.ferr), Joelle Friend (@joellefriend), Garrett King (@shortstache), and a whole bunch more with us over the weekend. RSVP by registering for a free ticket below.
