History Begins Here: Starting a Legacy in NYC

Presented by Cole Haan

Proving that substance is the best style, earlier this month we teamed up with Cole Haan to present the Inspiration Workshop at Wallplay on NYC’s Lower East Side. Against the backdrop of New York Fashion Week, General Assembly teachers helped unlock guests’ potential via intimate classes like Sales Bootcamp and Cracking the Glass Ceiling. The Sketchbook Project inspired us with their mobile library of thousands of artist, inventor, author, and philanthropist notebooks. And evening panel discussions highlighted the incredible stories, successes, and challenges of driven and creative pioneers like the Mr. Gif team and Jerri Chou of The Feast. We hope you came away empowered. If you missed our Inspiration Workshop, check out our video recap and pics of the entire event, and learn why History Begins Here. … Read More

Gleaned from a season spent exploring the unknown and relishing in it, here are some programs to keep an eye on to open your city. … Read More

Offbeat Adventures in San Francisco

Presented by New Belgium Brewing

San Francisco feels like a city built specifically for oddballs after offbeat adventures. Starting with the Gold Rush waaaay back in 1849 through the counterculture and hippie movement of the ’60s, to the current tech-sector mass migration, SF has proved to be a hotspot for gung-ho weirdos. What follows is our list of suggestions for modern-day urban explorers with a taste for the left-of-center. They all serve as fantastic support for New Belgium’s wacky Tour de Fat, an annual celebration of “bikes, beer & bemusement,” that lands Saturday, September 13th at Golden Gate Park with headliner Reggie Watts and thousands of local cycling enthusiasts. … Read More

Flavorpill has teamed up with Cole Haan to help a new generation write their own history. On September 6th and 7th in NYC, you can attend our Inspiration Workshop at Wallplay on the Lower East Side for programming designed to inform and empower both your creative side *and* your business side.

Presented by Heineken

Our Routine Interruptions campaign with Heineken continues to reward bold moves and inquisitive souls, coast to coast. And it’s not too late to enter your phone number at RoutineInterruptions.com for your chance to win a last-minute, insane experience this summer. Our phone call tally is up to something like 3,000 — you could be next!

Winners in Austin and New York were sent to a private supper club featuring rising-star chefs, care of Dinner Lab. Adventurous eaters were treated to courses inspired by the Louisiana swampland (alligator, anyone?) and the always popular, “breakfast for dinner.” In Atlanta and Chicago, routines were interrupted with secret concerts curated by Sofar Sounds. Sofar Sounds champions emerging artists, sending them to intimate pop-up shows in stunning living rooms (yes, living rooms) and other surprising spots around the world. Check out shots from some of these recent interruptions, and remember to pick up the phone once you’ve entered at RoutineInterruptions.com. If you don’t go, you’ll never know…   … Read More

Offbeat Adventures in Fort Collins, Colorado

Presented by New Belgium Brewing

It’s hard to go wrong in Fort Collins, Colorado, repeatedly ranked as one of the best towns in America and known as heaven-on-earth for lovers of beer, bikes, bands, and boats — but it can be tough to narrow down the choices on your offbeat adventure to-do list. Named for an old military camp, the charming city marches to the beat of its own quirky drum and is in the midst of celebrating its 150th birthday year. With New Belgium’s Tour de Fat getting ready to make its way home to where the infamous brewery was born in 1991 — ultimately launching the epic, craft-beer boom that now defines the city — you can count on the fiercely proud and eccentric locals going out of their way to ensure that this is the fattest stop on the tour. Hip and adventurous without trying, once you get a taste of FoCo flavor you won’t want to leave. … Read More
