Our favorite motivational speaker of all time remains Matt Foley, the greasy haired tub of energy who lived in a VAN down by the RIVER (though a close second may soon be Method Man). But tonight in a studio down by the river, you can find some of our newest favorite non-motivational speakers as part of Gelf Magazine’s free recurring series. Speakers are Amy Sohn, star author and bête noire of the Park Slope strollerati; Baruch Herzfeld, Orthodox bike shop owner and de facto Henry Kissinger of the Hasid-Hipster Williamsburg Wars; and Dr. Jay Parkinson, Brooklyn’s handsome bearded “digital doctor“—founder of Hello Health and one of Esquire’s 2009 Best and Brightest “Radicals and Rebels Who Are Changing the World.”
What will these three have in common to talk about? No idea, but Gelf magazine tells us: “As always, booze will be below-market and easy thrills free.” And if you can get motivated about anything, it’s free events with low-grade depressants.
