Hygge means "a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being."
If you haven't been to one before, think of it as a casual gathering to make new friends, discuss fun projects you're eager to work on, dive into deep, thoughtful discussions, and meet people who can help make NYC feel like a smaller, closer-knit community. Bring your friends, family, coworkers, anyone you think would enjoy both meeting new people and coming across friendly and familiar faces.
We'll have dinner, talk passions and projects, and meet those who can help. To make conversations with strangers easier and more fruitful, keep an eye out for our hand-written 'questions to spark authenticity' (http://bit.ly/sparkauthenticity)
sprinkled on sticky notes across the tables.
To find us, enter the main atrium of Brookfield Place (the large glass enclosure facing the waterfront), and take the escalators up to the food court. At the top, start walking ahead and to the right. We usually gather by the tables directly between the Dos Toros stall and the windows.
Bring your curiosity. Bring an open mind. Prepare to learn about all the fascinating things that your fellow NYC future-friends are creating and thinking about.
Our event starts at 6pm, and we typically stay at the food court until 9pm when it closes, then we collectively meander over to the Conrad hotel lobby across the street for cozier vibes, and stay there until 11pm or so.
