San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
You’ve seen her work—in Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, campaigns for Tiffany, American Express, Nike, and Samsung, and online web sensations. Now come spend an evening with Jessica Hische, as she serves as Hattery’s guest editor on July 17.
Hische will present interviews, stories, tutorials, and more around her chosen theme of Vices and Virtues. Topics to be covered include: the story of a rock and roll journalist finding peace in meditation, a haiku reading inspired by memes and gifs, a scotch cocktail tutorial and rumination on the historical significance of booze in the city, and the rise of caffeine culture and why we need it.
This is the first in a series of Guest Editor events at Hattery in which luminaries from culture, technology, and the arts curate evenings of discussion, experience, and fun centered on their favorite things.
Cocktails supplied by Two Sisters Bar and Books.
