Hear from:


Karilyn Crockett

Carol Downs

Founding Co-Owner and Manager of Bella Luna & The Milky Way

For more than 25 years, Carol has been part of the team behind the artsy, vibrant and delicious local eatery Bella Luna & The Milky Way. Their mission? To be a gathering place that creates community through food, beverages, art and music in an effort to build a better Boston.



One more to come!



BostonTalks is WGBH’s smarter happy hour. It’s smarter because we feature three short talks, and it’s happy hour because the entire event takes place in a bar-like setting with lots of casual conversation. BostonTalks Happy Hour is a networking-style event with limited seating.


You must be at least 21 with a valid ID to attend this event. Beer, wine and hard cider are available for purchase.
