This November we have a lot of excellent First Friday events to be thankful for! Check out our full First Friday schedule below:

312 E Girard Ave
Friday: Wisdom Series – A Higher Taste – Global Transformation | 6-8 pm
We all sometimes lament about the suffering going on in the world. The wars, poverty, and despair that exists. What increases our lamentation is the fact that so many of the problems could be solved if certain things about our institutions, culture, and society simply changed. How can we affect this change? We all hear that change starts from the individual, but how can we channel our compassion into actual change? Does this require self-abnegation for the welfare of others? Or can we develop a taste for working together, a solution where everyone wins? Come and discuss these questions and more at Mantra Lounge and enjoy a great vegan meal.
