The TEDxTampaBaySalon team is hosting monthly community nights to engage the Tampa Bay community around big ideas. Check us out on the third Monday of every month from 6:30 PM until 8:30 PM at Tre Amici at the Bunker in Ybor City. We’re gathering to create an inclusive environment free of political, religious, and market-driven agendas. So, bring your ideas and join the conversation.
If you aren’t familiar with Tre Amici (or the Bunker) in Ybor City, take this opportunity to check it out! The Bunker is an historic building with a long history as a meeting place. Tre Amici is continuing this tradition. Tre Amici’s philosophy makes The Bunker a natural fit for TEDxTampaBay community nights. Tre Amici carries organic and fair trade products, supports local artists, and fosters open discourse through community engagement. Along with plenty of soft, comfortable chairs, nice round tables, free wi-fi, and a flat screen TV, they’ll keep the kitchen open and will be selling delicious sandwiches, salads, coffee, beer, wine, and more. So, whether you want to continue the conversation from a recent area TEDx event or you’re new to TEDx, come out and meet others who are passionate about sharing big ideas. Hopefully, you’ll meet new people you might not meet anywhere else.
