Darwin Valentine

2nd Annual Sexy Society for the Advancement of Social Studies
Public Assembly (70 N. 6th St., Brooklyn)
7pm
Free

The Society for the Advancement of Social Studies (SASS!) is proud to present a series of lectures designed to both entertain and enlighten. One Tuesday, each month, we will meet to discuss a different historical topic that you probably knew at one point but don’t remember anymore, plus themed drink specials.

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching so we’re gonna have some sexy history lectures to help get you in the mood. Our three speakers will cover:
– History of NYC brothels (steamy!)
– Engagement rings, from ancient times to modern (shiny!)
– Early photographs of handsome dudes, as told by Michelle of My Daguerreotype Boyfriend (internet celebrity!)

BONUS audience members will get a chance to compete in our “Missed Connections of History” Trivia Game, and one lucky person will win two gift certificates to the Brooklyn Brainery so they can take their crush on a hot yet informative date!

Between lectures DJ Kate Pilgrim will break your heart and then teach you to love again with her tunes.
