Debate The Issues of Our Time - Over Brunch

Enjoy a lively debate over the political, environmental, educational, technological, medical, scientific, economic, cultural, social and/or, dare I say, relationship issues of our time - DC style - over brunch!

Sunday, 22, 2018 at 1:00pm

Graciously Hosted by Mariby Corpening

NOTE:  On reservation, guests may suggest a debate question/topic to "put into the hat" and throughout the experience, randomly pull topics for discussion.  By the time we emerge from the table, 3-4 hours later, my hope is that, while we may not agree, at the very least, we can respect, perhaps even appreciate another point of view, from someone, from somewhere else beyond our own fragrant bubble!

Flyer - The Great Debates.jpg

You should know that I so enjoy living in our multi-cultured DC Metro area. Here, you get a taste, almost a thirst for a good, lively debate over such controversial issues in these historical times.  Am I right?  So, I have thoughtfully orchestrated a brunch experience beyond mere pleasure - that not only invites and delights, but that ignites and enlightens our spirits in good company, good conversation, complemented with just good food!

I believe I was born to serve ... more than one form of hunger - bringing people together in the spirit of uplifting, inherently doing unto us all!

Thank You!

New Year's Eve Birthday Bash

It's My Birthday

And I Want To Dance! 

Come Dance With Me!

Hosted by Birthday Girl Mariby Corpening

When Was The Last Time You Danced? 

You and yours - ADULTS ONLY 21 AND OVER - are cordially invited to My New Year's Eve Birthday Celebration!

You should know that I missed my 50th celebration some years back and unbelievably, in all my years, I have never had a birthday party!  So, this year, I WANT TO DANCE and would love for YOU to join me!

I mean, when was the last time you got dressed up, went out and reeeeally danced?  I know, it's been awhile for me, too, and so, I've summoned one of the brightest up and coming DJs - JaydaRealist, who's specialty is keeping the crowd on their feet, with music from the very latest to the all time greatest, including all our old favorites - some from way back in the day!  I promise you, you will not [want to]  stop dancing!  Now, your knees will tell a different story the morning after! 

"Never Stop Dancing"

My Mantra for 2018!

I haven't seen you, hugged you, laughed with you in a long while!  Come dance with me for my 56th birthday this New Year's Eve!  I've got some really, really great music just for you  and, you know me, plenty of good food, too!

Admission is on me!  You need only bring some bubbly; though, please RSVP!

You learn to dance with the limp...
