Star Wars pop up! Going to the Dolby store is pretty helpful if you need help deciding between watching a movie in IMAX, 3D, and Dolby Cinema. You are able to test out Dolby products, which helps in decision making for either splurging or not splurging on Dolby products.

Happy January! I hope you are enjoying the year so far. For the past 2 weekends, I have been able to go to free conferences.

For this week’s edition of the free NYC event list expect book club, workouts, influencer panel, the band Echosmith, negotiation training , and hands on art painting workshops.
