The idea behind Lunch Beatis simple – ditch your desk for an hour-long party in the middle of the work day. If you dance, you get a free lunch.
Lunch Beat was first brought to Cincinnati by Starfire Council last Spring. These semi-impromptu pop-up lunch events are designed to bring people together, highlight the fun and creative energy in the city of Cincinnati and most of all - to get people of all kinds to DANCE!
