Quick! What's the sexiest organ in the body? If you really think about it, it's definitely the brain. Whatever your relationship status this Valentine's Day, it's the mind that matters most. Treat yourself to a little mental stimulation at TEDxFlourCity's first TEDSalon, which promises the same intellectual enthusiasm as the day-long talks in an intimate setting, with adult beverages.
On Wednesday, February 13, The Daily Refresher (293 Alexander St.) will host "TEDuary 13th: What Turns You On?" Guest speakers include Todd Pagano, associate professor and director of the Laboratory Science Technology program at Rochester Institute of Technology's National Technical Institute for the Deaf, who was named 2012 U.S. Professor of the Year by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Also presenting will be Danielle Raymo and Stephanie Rankin, founders of the Rochester Brainery (rochesterbrainery.com), a place to take and teach classes that is set to open in the Village Gate in March. The talks will be followed by informal discussions, drink specials, and raffles for local businesses. The event will take place at 7 p.m. and is free to attend.
