Guest Post: An Ode to Indy Hall Night Owls by Hila Ratzabi

This is post is being shared from one of Indy Hall’s members, Hila Ratzabi, about her experience at our weekly Night Owls coworking session:

This is not going to be a poem, despite the title. I just wanted to share with you all my first night owls experience—cause I don’t think you know what you’re missing out on.

Firstly, pre-night owls, I got to have a one-on-one yoga class with Ahava, and it was awesome. I hope and expect there will be more of this. Secondly, I talked to Bridget about her anthropological work on gender and Islam, and now am editing some of her writing on the topic—and it’s seriously fascinating.

The highlight of the evening—Kara and Dana made some seriously kick ass food. Kara’s mac & cheese might be one of the best I’ve ever had, and Dana’s collard greens were just perfect.

I had a deep conversation about the Internet with dude-with-the-handlebar-mustache (what is your name?). I met new member Sam who apparently might be kind of related to me through the Ratzabi lineage of our families in Israel (crazy!). I learned about Kara’s awesome work she recently did in India. I got to learn a bit about Austin’s work creating apps that are geared toward the blind.

And to top it all off I watched Sean, et al., hanging curtains out front and stood there in awe of how these guys just up and hung some curtains just like that.

Seriously, night owls was like a microcosm of what an incredible place in Indy Hall is. I’m happy to be part of this motley crew!

Love, Hila
