Conversation with fascinating people, Table sits at the crossroads of socializing and social issues; activism and pessimism; face-to-face communication and the virtual age. Blending race, gender, generation, and party into a conversation where opinions are equal and relationships are developed. Replacing fear based sound bites; Table creates memorable entertainment with dialog, story, and community wrapped in the lost art of an entertaining dinner party. Table is a loose interpretation of the Jeffersonian dinner where in order to address a major cultural issue of the day, the finest minds were assembled and asked to share compelling personal stories as the entire party looked for the answers.
