Imagine a world where lunch breaks are parties. Where you can leave your computer monitor for an hour, let out your angst over Excel spreadsheets and lukewarm, instant office coffee on a dance floor, and jam to the tune of a DJ’s throbbing beats – all before 2pm. This world exists. Not just in your mind – but in reality, thanks to Lunch Beat, the international, non-profit lunchtime dance party initiative, which was such a hit in Sweden in 2010, co-founders Sarah Reynolds & Isha Toor decided it was time to bring it to the States – and straight to Flatiron. Next week.
On Wednesday, April 24th, from 12:30pm-1:30pm, ditch your Microsoft Outlook and pass through the velvet rope at Slate, where you can not only decompress for an hour at an alcohol-free, daytime disco, but also eat really healthy vegetarian food – all for just $12. Under one condition: you must dance. You must get down. So pack your dancing shoes.
