NYC: a city of 8 million, and an inspiring story behind every one.
New York City is, for the most part, full of ambitious, smart, passionate and generally interesting people. We come here to cut our teeth, make our way, prove we can do it, and yet, get a room full of these people together and we end up talking mostly about work.
We wanted to change that at Fohr Card, and so, launched a speaking series called TenFohr in which we would ask amazing, driven people to come and talk for 10 minutes, the only rule? Their topic couldn’t have anything to do with their job or work.
Last night we had our 5th and largest #tenfohr. Jeff Laub, founder of blindbarber told us why sometimes it’s good to disconnect. Kata de Solis, managing director of Moving Image and Content defended her hoarding as a by product of growing up in the consumption obsessed 80’s. Lee sang us a song that touched a group of weary travelers on an Indian train and naveen, co-founder of Foursquare, reminded us that sometimes you climb a mountain for the view you get of yourself, not the clouds.
Everyone has a story to tell, most of us just never ask.

There are worse ways to while away an afternoon.
“Kandinsky in Paris, 1934-1944,” is such a stunning exhibition. We highly recommend that you see it before it leaves the Guggenheim in April.

On March 17th, we welcome you to an evening devoted to the most festive wine of all: Champagne! Louis Roederer’s Charles Fournier hosts a dinner that will open your eyes to Champagne’s potential beyond the celebratory toast. Founded in 1776 in Reims, France, Champagne Louis Roederer is one of the very rare Champagne houses to remain firmly in the hands of the family — and every sip of their Champagne belies this dedication to quality.
