The Blankenship Chair!


Join our mailing list!

The Blankenship Chair is a live event series I created to celebrate our favorite nooks and crannies of the culture. We’re a community that believes passionate conversation, idiosyncratic games, and a fine selection of wines can foster the boisterous fellowship that makes life richer and more fun. 

We'd love to have you join us -- in real time, in a real place -- for a relaxed and lively gathering. Music, film, theater, books, TV... you name it. We love it all, and we want to discuss it with you.

Plus, our first two events have been announced:

On Saturday, June 1 from 3-5 PM, I’ll be joined by Sarah D. Bunting (co-host of Mark and Sarah Talk About songs) to host a tournament that determines the greatest pop music diva of the 80s. All artists will be thoroughly discussed, and everyone in attendance gets to vote and rally support for their favorites. Get your tickets here!

On Saturday, July 13 from 3-5 PM, I’ll be joined by Tony Award-winner Itamar Moses (The Band’s Visit) and National Alliance for Musical Theatre staffer Adam Grosswirth to discuss the most important opening numbers in musical theater history. We’ll also take breaks so that audience members can play Musical Theater Name That Tune. Get your tickets here!
