Lovenoise Host GZA at City Winery + Conscious Convo & Clerisy Circle Host Election Watch Party

Last week, Election Tuesday dramatic conclusion of the 2016 Presidential boxing, er election.  This year, including the election debates, has been emotional, shocking, year, with the tone of one of the ugliest elections I think I’ll ever witness looming over our heads.  I was stricken with anxiety over the pending results of the election.
