    Unfortunately the video is missing in action (withdrawn by user). It was a fun event, I talked to literally hundreds of people.

    Whoa, a MMF in Westport? That’s the coolest thing that’s ever happened there. I went to high school in Westport and wished there was something like that out there then.
