Our first Skip the Small Talk as it exists in its current form took place at Aeronaut Brewing Company in Somerville, MA. We brought the same research-informed structure to help folks feel comfortable opening up to each other, and we refined our cards with thought-provoking questions on them to help strangers get to that magical conversational place where they feel like they can talk about anything. It worked. We sold out days before the event, and we met a lot of fantastic folks who come back for more small-talk skipping regularly. We continue to hold these Skip the Small Talks at Aeronaut monthly.
