Likeminds is "an annual conference in upstate New York that brings together creative individuals from an array of disciplines for speakers during the day, music at night, incredible food, all you can drink beer/wine, yoga, swimming at the lake, and a site-specific pop-up shop. Take the Metro North Friday afternoon up to Beacon, where we'll pick you up and shuttle you to camp! Each guest will be assigned a bunk bed in cabins complete with clean linens and a bathroom nearby." It all goes down Sept 15-17 at "Camp Tommy" in Fishkill, NY.
