A Smarter Happy Hour
Grab your friends and join us for WGBH’s take on happy hour — inspiring conversation plus wine and local craft brews for $5 a glass. Hear from and connect with local experts in a variety of fields while enjoying the great company of your neighbors from Boston and beyond. Each event combines short speaking programs, drinks, and a chance for you to join the conversation.
Happy Hour: Reimagining the Wheel
Local innovators will discuss how they’ve discovered new ways of doing everyday things. Superpedestrian's Andrew Schmidt will highlight how The Copenhagen Wheel is revolutionizing bike riding; Groupmuse’s Sam Bodkin will talk about making classical music “cool” again; and Mei Mei co-owners Margaret Li and Irene Li will serve up insights about food industry innovations. Connect with Andrew, Sam, Margaret and Irene at WGBH’s take on happy hour.
Meet the Host
Edgar Herwick is the guy behind WGBH's Curiosity Desk, where the quest is to dig a little deeper into (and sometimes look a little askew at) topics in the news, and search for answers to questions posed by the world around us. His features can be seen on WGBH's Greater Boston and heard on 89.7 WGBH's Morning Edition and All Things Considered. He also appears regularly with Jim Braude and Margery Eagan on Boston Public Radio. Follow him on Twitter @ebherwick3.
