Obviously, I haven't updated this announcement thread in a while. Poly Cocktails
takes place on the first Monday of every month and has been going strong. The information for the upcoming March event follows below.
Many people have contacted me personally for information on this group and Poly Cocktails. However, please know that I am not affiliated with Poly Cocktails nor Open Love NY in any official capacity - I simply post here whatever announcements they send to me in their emails.
To receive the organization's announcements directly, go here to visit their site: http://openloveny.com/
. They have a presence on Facebook and Twitter, and make announcements on Google Groups as well.
BTW, their announcements always ask to bring food. Except for the holiday parties, I've never seen anyone do that at Poly Cocktails - but I haven't been to one in a long time. Personally, I would not eat homemade food brought to a public event by people I don't know, but that's just me. If you have any questions about what to bring, or anything else at all, you can contact the organizers via Facebook, Twitter, or directly to email@example.com
Okay, so here is the latest:
Poly Cocktails - Monday, March 10th @ The Delancey
Last months 7th anniversary celebration was an amazing event and we want to thank all that came out! Lets keep it going! Come and join our community in kicking-off Poly Cocktails 8th year on March 10th, @ The Delancey.
*Who to bring/invite*
We attract a wide range of people who are in consensual open relationships or identify as polyamorous. If you are curious about this lifestyle, or have questions about your current relationship, this is a great opportunity to meet like-minded people, many of whom are available for advice, support and just plain fun. We welcome you, solo or with your loved ones, and look forward to seeing the familiar faces that build this loving community.
Please bring snacks to share. You know, all the interesting people always gather around the food. As usual, please ask the bartenders for our drink specials - $5 whiskey, well-drinks, and selected beers.

Poly Cocktails House Rules
Learn - Poly Cocktails is for learning about polyamory and developing friendships and connections. It is not a play space. No nudity, kink, or sex play is permitted at the event.
Open communications - Poly Cocktails is a place to exercise open communications with intention, foster interactive dialogue, facilitate trust, develop your listening skills, and give and receive support.
Verbal Consent - We encourage everyone to obtain verbal consent and explicit negotiations (as modeled at Cuddle Parties) before initiating physical contact (e.g. hugging).
Expectations - Check them at the door! Interest in polyamory does not signal sexual availability or indicate sexual orientation.
Respectful behavior toward hosts and guests is required.
Safe Space – Poly Cocktails is safe space for all sexual orientations and gender/kink identities, as well as those who identify as monogamous. No photography, video or recording of any kind is allowed without prior verbal consent of all parties involved.
