“Join us for drinks and go home smarter.” That’s the mission statement of Caveat, a Lower East Side speakeasy specializing in intelligent nightlife. Caveat hosts a variety of events led by entertaining storytellers, comedians, podcasters, and experts in their fields. On July 26th Caveat will host the third installment of their love/hate comedy series about the history of the MTA, Why Your Train is F*cked.
Whether you love it, hate it, or want to compose more informed rage-tweets about it during your next 20 minute delay – this show’s got you covered. Why Your Train is F*cked is hosted by Meg Pierson (TEDx, Alchemy Comedy) and Justin Williams (City College, SirusXM) who in this installment will cover signal problems. At this show Pierson and WIlliams will also be joined by special guests, “busker” Pinc Louds and “passenger of note” Tyler Green. Green is the founder of Transit Techies and just finished riding the MTA to every single stop!
