How She Revels: Dale Pollekoff

I'm finding so much creativity and fun in the events I do for Revel.

No secrets left. I've capitalized on all my talents by now...I'm 74, after all.

Host Highlight
Age: 
74
Location:
 LA (originally from Washington, DC)

What do you do for work? 

In 2016, I started a group on Meet-Up called Finding Female Friends Past Fifty, which the NY Times featured in 2019. I closed FFF>F to come to Revel in 2021, where I'm now Head of Special Projects.

What’s your favorite thing to do when you have a completely free day? 

I am a perpetual French language learner, and always have art projects to engage with. But, I'm finding so much creativity and fun in the events I do for Revel, that I often find myself 'working' on my days off.

What are you most looking forward to in the next year?

Watching Revel continue to grow, engaging with the new Woolfer addition to our family, and getting together with friends IRL.

Is there anything in particular that keeps you up at night?

I'm sleeping the best I ever have!

What do you like to read?

Almost anything written in French, to keep in practice. And, recently, my subscription to 'Stack' which sends monthly independent zines to my door from around the world —very arty, cutting edge, and sometimes subversive.


Last Google search?

'The Best Comedians of 2021.' (My Seriously Saturday Night at the Movies events need a break from serious.)

Any vices?

Eating more carbs and sugar than I should.

Secret talent?

No secrets left. I've capitalized on all my talents by now...I'm 74, after all.

Do you have any Revel events coming up? 

My ongoing Seriously Saturday Night at the Movies series, and my monthly Eye Candy: Down the Rabbit Hole of Visual Wonders.


Do you have any events in the works? 

I'd like to create something around being childless by choice. Also something on the subject of body acceptance which I learned, while hosting a series called Big Talk, is still a big issue, even into our 50's and beyond.
