Starting this June, The Luncheon Society will add a fourth city alongside San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Manhattan—it will be Boston.

The Boston contingent will begin slowly in 2011 and pick up speed as we move into 2012.  The city may be new but the founding principles forged from that first Luncheon Society gathering in 1997 are still the same, when it was just Tom Koch, Tim Farley and myself.

What we are about. We believe in the relationship between great conversation and good citizenship. And so do you.

So here is my question:  Do you have a friend who might want to join The Luncheon Society in Boston?  Here is what you can do.  

  • Forward this link to those who might enjoy being part of The Luncheon Society experience. Have them reach out to me–or
  • You can also respond to me with names of people who might like The Luncheon Society and I will reach out to them on your behalf.
  • Learn about The Luncheon Society at our website:

As we move into the future, I will be sharing the moderating duties.  In Boston, I will be working closely with my old friend Rucker Alex. She joined us often when she lived in San Francisco but left for the East Coast several years ago.  She is a great moderator and one smart individual.  As for me, I will return now and then for some Boston gatherings.

It also means that I can catch the Sox at Fenway.  Everybody wins.

Our first Boston gathering: We will be meeting with Mike and Kitty Dukakis in early June. Invitations will be sent out soon.

The Luncheon Society  is a series of private luncheons and dinners that take place inSan Francisco, Los Angeles, Manhattan, and now Boston.  We essentially split the costs of gathering and we meet in groups of 20-25 people. Discussions center on politics, art, science, film, culture, and whatever else is on our mind. Think of us as “Adult Drop in Daycare.” We’ve been around since 1997 and we’re purposely understated. These gatherings takes place around a large table, where you interact with the main guest and conversation becomes end result.  There are no rules, very little structure, and the gatherings happen when they happen. Join us when you can.
