Welcome to Culture and Connection! This is a night where we take a piece of pop culture and talk about it. This month's theme is Insecure, so come grab a drink and a bite have a conversation about the show that has us stressed every weekend.

Introducing The Minimal NYC. An app that connects you to people who are willing to trade lives. For real. Ever wonder what it’d be like to be a music teacher in Nashville? A children’s book illustrator in Brooklyn? A human rights activist in DC?
It’s a social network that facilitates real life swaps: you go to someone’s city, live in their home, hang with their friends and family, do their jobs, attend their events and activities. Yes, it’s totally intense… and it’s totally thrilling. Call us crazy, but we don’t think the best memories are made in the comfort zone.
Come check us out at the party (and sign up for The Minimal NYC account at one of our stations while you’re at it). Bottom line: it’s a startup launch. Good times will be had by all.
