During the Age of Enlightenment, the Salon was a common gathering: a meeting of minds to discuss topics ranging from morality and human rights to scientific and mathematical conundrums to theories on the arts. This type of gathering was a symbol of its time: a period of industry and innovation and progress.
We, too, live in a time of intense innovation, and A. C. Studios is providing a platform for individuals to gather and connect over shared interests and the breaking of bread. In an increasingly digital world, we invite the minds of our community to pause and share their thoughts face to face with each other free from the shield of a digital screen.
Each Salon Dinner will be based around a community-style table to encourage conversations and connections. Guest moderators and topics will rotate with each meeting, as will an exclusive menu for the group meeting. We do ask that attendees keep their discussion free from insults or overemphasis on politics or religion out of respect to the diverse viewpoints of all guests.
The moderator for our first-ever Salon Dinner & Discussion will be A.C. Studio's owner, Kim Summer's Dolleh. The topic will be: Keeping sane with creativity in a busy world.
Starter: Strawberry and Kale Salad with Goat Cheese Crumbles, Candied Pecans, & Citrus Vinaigrette and Homemade Yeast Rolls.
Entree: Buttered Spaghetti with Lamb Meatballs on a saucer and choice of: Traditional Pomodoro or Classic Alfredo Sauce.
Dessert: Italian Cake.
