Several ponies from Fast Horse have been regulars at likemind, a monthly coffee-and-conversation group that meets in downtown Minneapolis. There’s usually a good turnout, with Carmichael Lynch, Space150 and Fallon among the agencies often represented. It tends to attract a lot of planners, which is great from my perspective, because they look at things differently than creatives and account people. I haven’t had any mind-boggling insights come out of the talks, but I usually walk away with a few thoughts that nudge me in an interesting direction.

The next likemind is 8 a.m. next Friday, July 18, at Espresso Royale, 1229 Hennepin Ave. Anyone reading this blog would probably enjoy the gathering. Things usually start cooking by 8:30 and it breaks up before 10. You can come and go as you please — no need to stay for the full two hours.
