Sixteen times a year, PourRichards brings interesting people together to talk about ideas and discuss writings in the fields of economics, history, political theory, current events, and science and technology. Our meetings take the following forms:
PourRichards meets three times a year for lunch in the conference room of the member volunteering to host that time. We discuss a shorter piece like an essay or historical document (King’s letter from a Birmingham Jail, or the US Constitution, for example). No wine is served.
Three other times a year, we gather in the home of one of members for light hor d’oevres, cheese, and great wines. We generally socialize about a half an hour or so before getting down to business to discuss the book. These gatherings have led to some amazing conversations and a lot of late nights.
The Wandering Minds Breakfast Group
Launched Fall of 2010 was the newest iteration of PourRichards, which is effectively: No wine and no book. Here we meet the first Wednesday of every month for an early breakfast at a restaurant. Over the ham and eggs, a topic is introduced by one of the members which we then all discuss. (We do not meet in January or July).
