Good People Dinners

Lohika Good People Dinner (New York)


Good People Dinners are all about inspiration, community and friendships. Meals are served family-style, for 30 to 40 people at a time. This exclusive, invitation-only dinner took place on May 5, 2022, in New York City.

Meet with CEOs, founders and product/engineering leaders from our community of clients, partners and friends.

Our Speaker

Ari Wallach is an applied futurist and social systems strategist who’s the founder and executive director of Longpath Labs.

Ari helps organizations and individuals discover and leverage a new version of “why” for their work that leads to deeper and more meaningful motivations for all stakeholders. 

Ari is the author of the book “Longpath: Becoming the Great Ancestors Our Future Needs – An Antidote for Short-Termism.”

Attend the dinner and you’ll receive a free copy of the book.

Our Chef

Chef Thomas Owen has always felt at home behind a range. Whether in the mountains of Colorado or the lakes of Madison, Wisconsin, he found that cooking and community go hand-in-hand. Thomas started at a young age in the kitchen and became drawn to the fast pace and creativity of the culinary world through high school culinary competitions.

After graduating from Madison College with a degree in Culinary Arts and working in several of Madison’s most iconic restaurants, Thomas transplanted himself to San Francisco to be among some of the world’s highest-regarded chefs, including a stint at Quince, a Three Michelin Star restaurant.

Now he is moving his vision for amazing food with friends, family, and community outside the restaurant through pop-ups, dinner parties, and private in-home tasting menus. Fostering connections is what drives him to create an atmosphere of everlasting discovery, on the plate and with the people sharing our tables.


The attire is relaxed and informal. If you’re a vegetarian or have other dietary needs or restrictions, please let us know.
