“Eating is essential to our survival, but it is more than that. Eating is the framework of our society. We all have to do it. It brings us together. Food is life. When we eat, it makes us feel good, and if we are around the people we love, it reinforces these feelings.” The Happy Philosopher The convivial symposium encourages people to eat, drink and talk in a friendly, engaging way. There is no agenda, no advertising, and no theme. Dinner and drinks are included in your ticket. Only 60 seats will be available.
