Here's the deal.

I want to experiment with some different themes. (I have no idea if this is going to work.) Basically, I like discovering new cool things. You probably like discovering new cool things. We all obviously like classical music. No brainer β€” Groupmuse with great base ingredients with which to experiment and discover awesome new things together. Right?

I'll share some things I think are awesome:
- 1 bottle Widow Jane Bourbon (Brooklyn)
- 1 bottle Doc's Absinthe (Brooklyn)

You'll bring something you think is awesome (ideally not something you just grabbed on your way from the office):
- Maybe your favorite lesser known spirit?
- Perhaps that secret mixer ingredient you keep up your sleeve for fancy cocktails?
- Something local and interesting you stumbled across recently?
- Worst case scenario, a staple you'd be proud to share with new and interesting folks.

We'll share drinks (if you've never had absinthe the traditional way, I'll show you how) and stories and listen to awesome violin music together.

Who's in?


Leclair Sonata No. 5 for Two Violins

Shostakovich Short Pieces for Two Violins

Paganini Caprice No. 24

Bach Concerto for Two Violins

Wow, I'm stoked to see so many enthusiastic Groupmusers signed up for this event! Since there are so many people on the wait list, I just want to remind folks to update the RSVP if you can't make it. Looking forward to seeing everyone Friday!

Hey. I just canceled my reservation--I'm not back to NYC until Monday. Sad I don't get to go--I'm sure it's going to be awesome.

I want to thank Clara and Igor for putting together such an impressive program for my Groupmuse last night (and Ben and Damien for excellent page turning). I'd especially like to thank all of my amazing guests for bringing such fantastic energy (and spirits) to pull off [what was probably] the most successful cocktail party Bedstuy has yet seen. Raise your hand if you'd do it again! πŸ™‹

If you got photos, please post them! You can also tweet with #groupmuse and @lar_meowers.

Thanks everyone!!

You're probably all aware of Groupmuse's Kickstarter campaign, which is aiming to raise $100k to cover operational costs of maintaining Groupmuse in New York, San Francisco, and Boston next year -- and launching Groupmuse in an additional city with every additional $100k raised. If you've wanted to support the campaign, but haven't yet pledged, I want to let you know about an option to stretch your contribution even further.

I recently started working for a foundation that primarily funds social justice initiatives, but also helps organizations that support the arts via a matching gifts program. They match employee donations 3:1, meaning if I donate $250 they will contribute $750, growing my donation to $1,000. If you are interested in contributing to the "Grow My Groupmuse Fund", reach out to me at [email protected].

Happy Holidays!
