Join us as we kick off our new salon series with an evening dedicated to stories of the dangerous minds, scandalous lifestyle choices, intoxicating beverages, and masters of snark that made up the Age of Enlightenment, as well as the provocative parallels between freeing the mind through knowledge and pursuit of spiritual enlightenment.
230 years ago the Age of Enlightenment dared us to know. We shall do our damnedest.
