Lucid NYC is Your Inspiration Oasis
At Lucid NYC, we're really good at 2
things: 1. Bringing together New York's best, brightest and hottest
folks for evenings of inspiration and good times. 2. Beleaguering metaphors and analogies. Come out March 2nd for #1 and in spite of #2.
We've just added our 3rd presenter,
Brian Schechter, co-founder of the innovative dating site Howaboutwe. We
also have stove-maker Jonathan Cedar and giver-of-stuff Michael
Mandiberg (all bios below). We'll have live jazz from We Three Strings
from Music for Tomorrow for the first hour.
So come out next Wednesday to rally in
our streets, drink for our oasis pool or concoct your own pan-Egyptian
metaphor. See you there!
secretly wants to be a theorist for the new Humanism. Starting a
business seemed like an essential first step. Shcechter grew up in
Newton, MA., down the street from Aaron Schildkrout - the other
Co-Founder of HowAboutWe. Between
16 and 20, he became passionate about urban education, theology and
all-things fun. From 20-30, he dove in to these passions, leaving
all-things fun to the side more often than not. At 31, he started
working on HowAboutWe with Aaron. And now, to his constant surprise, he
is passionate about getting people to know about HowAboutWe - the only
dating site out there he'd want to use.
