Nerdy Thursdays | Spring 2017
BGX Nerdy Thursdays : 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Happy Hour + Book Club + FREE = Your next Thursday hangout.
NERDY THURSDAYS is Black Gotham Experience’s new take on the after-work mixer. Come and enjoy complimentary signature drinks, a thematic soundtrack by a featured DJ that moves your heart, feet and mind, and an engaging, thought-provoking crowd. Or interact on a deeper level to discuss the book or topic of the month. And it all takes place in WORK/SPACE, a stimulating, new exhibit and experience space in the (South Street) Seaport District. May's book selection is New York Burning by Jill Lepore, which explores the 1741 slave rebellion and trials that rocked New York and are featured in our Caesar’s Rebellion walking tours.
The experience is hosted by Black Gotham Experience Founder and Lead Creative Kamau Ware, with music curated by BGX Design Team member DJ GoodWill. NERDY THURSDAY attendees can join our 7pm Caesar’s Rebellion Walking Tours (leaves from 192 Front Street) for 20% off using code SHOPNERDYTHURSDAY
