Event description


After 10 years of living it up in sunny Birmingham, Alabama, mental_floss is excited for our big move to New York. To celebrate, we're throwing our *First Ever* magazine release party, and we're inviting all our closest friends, neighbors, and you!

Join the editors and our wonderful friends from Flavorpill for a night of drinks, laughs, music, topiary, and, well, facts about bears. Oh, and there's a brand new issue you'll get a sneak peek at, too.

Hurry up and RSVP! Spaces are limited...

See you soon,

your pals at mental_floss



Q: How do I get to these Cabanas you speak of?

A: First, make sure to RSVP! If you're coming by subway, it's near the A,C,E at 14th Street, or the L at 8th Ave. The entrance to The Cabanas is on 17th St and 9th Ave.

Q: Are you charging at the door? And do I need to be a subscriber to attend?

A: No, we wanted this to be free so we could meet all of you! And nope--though we wouldn't mind if you decided to subscribe to the magazine.

Q: Facts about bears sound pretty enticing. But do I really want to hang out with the mental_floss staff?

A: Of course you do! Not only are we giving away lots of (bad) prizes, and copies of the brand new issue, but look at us. We look like nice folk, right?

Q: I see you've got fancy drinks on the invite. Do I have to be over 21 to attend?

A: Yes. But if this goes well, we'll keep doing these until you're old enough to get in.

Q: What's the dress code?

A: Upscale casual. Though, if you decide to wear a seersucker suit, a top hat, a velour Puma tracksuit and headband, or athletic knee socks from the 70s, you just might be rewarded for the effort.

Q: Since you're answering questions, which came first: orange the color or orange the fruit? And why are legal pads yellow? And who cleans up after seeing eye dogs?

A: Those are the type of questions we're used to answering! You can find those answers here, here and here.
