February 06, 2013 - New York

Bestselling author, Dan Ariely, speaks about leading more sensible – if not rational– lives. One challenge is what’s good for us right now is often not what is good for us in the long term. For example, dieting and saving are not so much fun now, but good for the future. When faced with such tradeoffs, we often focus on the short term rather than long term goals and get ourselves into trouble. By understanding where we fall short, there are methods we can use to overcome our natural inclinations. RSVP today at or call 202-572-3023.

February 06, 2013 -

Art Garfunkel Charles Grodin Moderator: Bruce Fretts, Articles Editor, TV Guide 1969 America through the Eyes and Songs of Simon and Garfunkel Few documentaries were as controversial and evocative of the late sixties as Songs of America, featuring Simon and Garfunkel on tour and in the studio. Conceived and written by Charles Grodin, Paul Simon, and Art Garfunkel and directed by Charles Grodin in 1969, Songs of America used the duo's music in overtly political montages to comment on the turbulent times. So many classic Simon and Garfunkel tunes are heard or performed throughout this resonant journey, including "Homeward Bound," "The Boxer," "The Sound of Silence," and "Bridge Over Troubled Water." Following this rare public screening, Garfunkel and Grodin, who had worked together on the feature Catch-22, will discuss the making of their documentary and the controversy surrounding the sponsor, AT&T removing their name.

Robert Cuccioli - 54 Below
February 06, 2013 - New York

54 Below welcomes one of Broadway's most popular leading men to its stage for one night only. A Standard Love reflects Robert Cuccioli's love of music from ballad to swing through musical standards from the 30?s and 40?s, lending his rich voice to some of the most endearing American standards ever written, including "The Look of Love," "I've Got You Under My Skin," "How Do You Keep the Music Playing," and "Zing! Went the Strings of my Heart." Each song is part of a timeline that, as Robert says, "features an aspect of my own romantic life that resonates in my heart," of loving and losing and loving again. Robert currently appears in the dual role of Dr. Norman Osborn/The Green Goblin in the rock musical Broadway production of Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. Of course, it was in another dual role that Broadway audiences first fell in love with him when he conquered Jekyll & Hyde!
