August 16: The Non-Motivational Speaker Series Returns

The Non-Motivational Speaker Series returns on Thursday, August 16 to consider the land of Brooklyn.

Everyone and their nightly news anchor knows Brooklyn is a modern-day Shangri-La. $8 slow-pour espressos, live births on stage, and an after-dark cognoscenti that would make Vinnie Barbarino blush have rendered the borough the coolest city on the planet. But is life across the river really that rad? Is there a cost to $8 espressos (aside from $8)? Or has the media got it all wrong? We're not sure, but we've enlisted comedians and Brooklyn-based web series creators Rob Michael Hugel (I Hate Being Single) and Sue Smith and Eric Silver (Brokelandia) to tell us. Clips will be shown at the event.
