Event Details


Most Rapturous Lucid Ever

May 21st was a bit of a bust, but the prophets-that-be have confered and stated that June 8th is the  actual epochal moment.  They're not sure what's going to happen, but they're sure it'll be revealed at Lucid NYC.

Our presenters are Miriam Simun, the artist behind Breast Milk Cheese speaking about the localist of cuisines; urban caveman John Durant talking about the many innovations in primitivism; and Priceline.com founder and entrepreneurial powerhouse Jeff Hoffman will tell us how to launch and fund any venture, whether it's an unorthodox cheese shop or multi-unit urban cave dwellings.

As always, there will be food, drinks and music before the presentations. Drom features a full dinner menu and there will be a happy hour from 7-8. Live jazz by The Hot Sardines courtesy of Music for Tomorrow, will provide the soundtrack for this amazing evening.

Additional info at Our Website

Miriam SimunMiriam Simun is completing a Masters degree in Interactive Telecommunications at New York University and working with Natalie Jeremijenko at the xDesign Environmental Health Clinic.  She was raised in the USA by Soviet refugees, reared to be suspicious of superpowers, 5-year plans, and the illusion of permanence. At a tender age she crossed the pond to see what happens to an empire after it collapses, and picked up a B.Sc (Hons) Sociology from the London School of Economics. She has conducted research at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University and at the Research Center for Information Law at the University of Sankt Gallen.  She has lived, studied and worked in Los Angeles, London, Yangon, Bangkok, Sankt Gallen, Lisbon, and now New York.

John DurantJohn Durant was born and raised in the great state of Michigan, studied history, economics, and evolutionary psychology at Harvard, graduating in 2005.  He spent a year and a half learning to play Excel like a piano at a consulting firm in New York City. In 2007, he jumped ship for a tech start-up doing online advertising.  After NYT and Colbert, he landed a book deal--so now he's a professional caveman (Almost as cool as being an astronaut.)  He lives in the wilds of Manhattan.
