In our rushed and busy times, we often don’t sit down to reflect a bit about questions that impact our life, our relationships or our future.
Brussels Greek restaurant Notos has teamed up with Apostrophos to organise themed philosophy evenings merged with an aperitif.
Every month, on a Tuesday different themes from Greek philosophy will be explored. These will be mixed with a Greek wine and some traditional Greek dishes served by chef Constantin Erinkoglou.
The first event was organised in October and centred around Philosophy vs Democracy. The discussion was very topical focusing on populism, fake news and posing questions as to where truth has gone.
The next event which will take place on Tuesday 20 November is titled: The odyssey, or how not to forget: How do we not forget and how are we not forgotten. This is the theme that will be explored. The event (in French) starts at 7pm and lasts an hour. The cost of the session is 28 euros per person which includes a glass of wine and Greek appetizers.
Anyone taking part at the event can stay for dinner at Notos and enjoy the week’s menu (3 courses) for 33 euros per person.
Apart from this monthly appointment, l’Apero Philo, as the event is called, can also be organised privately either at the restaurant or at home, at friends or even in the office. Choosing a personal event allows you to choose the theme and also the date of the event as well as the wines and dishes.
