The SpeakEasy returns to the Bronx! It seems to have eluded me for several months, but trust, if you are invited to one (hint, hint), I strongly encourage you to try to go. It’s always free, there’s always homemade food and drinks (crafted by Cavalier and Co. for a nominal donation) and the SpeakEasy is a great opportunity to meet talented and positive people.
