A Lawyer, a Poet, and a Philosopher Walk into a Bar to Talk About Love

Love …is patient, it is kind, it is cruel, it is blind, it hurts, it heals, it is a sickness, it is the drug, it is like oxygen, it is all you need, it stinks, it is supreme, it is eternal, it fades, it is the answer, it is life.  Join us for a symposium on that which makes us human.  Admission is $15, which includes one complimentary tapa and drink. Reservations are recommended (646.590.0142)
