- While the din of the national conversation dives to an historical new low (did you ever think it could go any lower?), we thought it was past time for neighbors to have a neighborly conversation on these heated topics. So we’re starting this year’s Dinner at the Square series taking dead-aim at topics facing our city, county and state.Kicking off the series on October 10th, we’ll be tackling penny sales tax in Broward County – a topic that many believe is one of our most pressing issues. From there we’ll be be addressing open/closed borders. So save the date for February 20th. And on May 1st, we’ll complete our year of programming with a deep dive on climate change, sea level rise, and and the environment here in South Florida. It won’t be the same without you as a part of the conversation.
