    Hey everybody !

    Working every day in New York City, I recently discovered a fun and fairly new company which puts together people with some skill or knowledge with others eager to learn for a social evening of fun and a bit of education.

    My first "toe in the water" with this was to participate in an evening Armagnac tasting - and it turned out that it was taught by the US Armagnac Ambassador who brought 8 or 10 different Armagnacs, the base liquor it is distilled from, and a whole lot of knowledge about becoming a better Armagnac lover. I was hooked.

    On a more Vegas-ey topic, I just saw a posting for two sessions in June - Sat the 15th and Sat the 29th - of a session offered by a "card counting expert" to be held at a "private card club in the Flatiron District". They play it up like a set piece from Rounders.

    The cost is not huge and a lot of these events are set up as an evening party for a small group to dive into a subject. My one experience was really exceptional.

    I just signed up for the June 15 date. If anyone in the NYC area is interested I would love to see you there. There's another session on June 29th.

    Here's the link -

    As a social event, maybe... but I think if somebody wants to learn card counting they should just do a few minutes research on the internet or go buy a book.

    Its one of those skills where if you can't learn it on your own with all the resources available then its unlikely you will ever have any success at it.

    I agree with you. It sounds like a fun social event. Kind of like cooking. You can do recipes out of a book, but it's a lot more fun to make a night of it with a group of people. We can learn a lot from the internet or books, but developing how to apply comes from social interaction. Counting and cooking can be a science but it's so much better when it's an art.

    Sounds like fun. Especially the Rounders part. That movie and the pocket cam turned poker from a game to a (inter)national phenomenom.
