Beyond Small Talk: How We're Redefining Adult Friendship

Written by: Samantha Wolfson


In a world inundated with fleeting interactions and digital connections, there's a longing for something deeper, more meaningful—a space where the art of conversation is cherished and friendships are nurtured through food and wine. 

It's my personal happy place and I've realized how many other women share this feeling. In building this, I've focused on a few key elements in redefining how this experience tackles friendship at any age. 

Transcending Superficiality

The magic of our experience lies in its commitment to transcending superficial conversations. It's a place where the typical questions of "What do you do?" and "Where are you from?" take a back seat to the more meaningful inquiries that dig into passions and shared experiences. Themes and questions set the stage, guiding conversations towards territories often uncharted in everyday interactions.

Sparking Vulnerability

At our heart is the recognition that true friendships are born out of vulnerability. By providing a safe and welcoming environment, the platform encourages women to share not only their stories but their fears, and aspirations openly. This vulnerability acts as a bridge, connecting participants on a level that goes beyond shared interests to touch upon the essence of who they are.

Breaking Barriers

One of our most distinctive features is the intentional limitation of participants to a small group—usually six women. This deliberate choice paves the way for a deeper connection to flourish. With a smaller group, there's space for everyone's voice to be heard, allowing for more meaningful interactions that extend beyond the surface.

Themes and Questions: Catalysts for Connection

Every evening gathering revolves around a theme and a question. These elements act as catalysts for connection, sparking discussions that dig deep into the human experience. Whether exploring the concept of resilience, discussing the pursuit of passions, or sharing stories of transformation, these themes serve as entry points to authentic conversations that forge lasting bonds.

A New Paradigm

We're more than just a supper club; it's a movement that seeks to redefine friendship in a world where connections can often feel fleeting. It's a testament to the power of deep conversations, shared stories, and the unbreakable bonds that form when women come together with open hearts.

In our society, we highly value convenience and quantity, I'm building this so we all stand as the beacon of authenticity. It's a reminder that beneath the surface, beyond the pleasantries, lies a treasure trove of stories waiting to be shared. And through these stories, through vulnerability and empathy, genuine friendships flourish, proving that the art of conversation is indeed the cornerstone of lasting connections.
