Housing Works’ Bookstore Café (126 Crosby St., Manhattan)
During Ask Roulette, strangers ask each other any question they want, big or small, in front of a live audience. It’s not as intimidating as it sounds. In fact, it’s built on trust — you can only ask a question once you’ve answered one. If you prefer, you can just be part of the crowd.
Questions are serious or silly, and answers are short or long. Over the course of the evening, you’ll get unexpected connections, surprising anecdotes, and honest conversation. You’ll also laugh.
With special guests:
NPR’s Mike Pesca, co-host of Slate’s “Hang Up And Listen” @pescami
Albertina Rizzo, writer for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon @albz
Choire Sicha of The Awl @choire
and, as always, house band Eli Bolin of Sesame Street and the Story Pirates
