Default Poly Cocktails - Mon., Nov. 12th - BACK AT AFFAIRE!!

Sorry I was too busy to post about October's Poly Cocktails, but here is November's email announcement:

Poly Cocktails - Monday, November 12th - BACK AT AFFAIRE!!

Poly Family!!

With winter starting to gear up today and the exhausting election campaign behind us, we are moving back to our Poly Cocktails winter headquarters - AFFAIRE!!


Come join us at Affaire (http://www.affairenyc.com) and celebrate polyamory and our community on Monday November 12th! We'll be in the cozy downstairs space.


As always, come solo or bring your wife, husband, "others," girlfriends, boyfriends and theirs and meet like-minded people. If you identify as polyamorous, if you are in an open relationship, or if you want to learn more about this loving and progressive way of life, we invite you to come and get advice and support, have some drinks and laughs, and build our community.


All are welcome... feel free to pass this on to those who have a serious interest. New folks, please come see our hosts and greeters with lighted name tags and introduce yourselves!


Monday, Nov. 12th
7:00 pm 'til midnight

Downstairs at Affaire
90 Avenue B (near 4th Street)

Default Poly Cocktails NYC - Mon. 3/1/14

Hello all,
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 openloveny@gmail.com.

Okay, so here is the latest:

Default NYC Poly Cocktails - Feb. 2015 Gathering

Sorry about not updating this thread in a long time! Poly Cocktails has been chugging along every month, however. Below is the latest announcement I received in an email from OpenLove NY.

If you have any questions, you can contact the organizers via Facebook, Twitter, or directly to openloveny@gmail.com. Do not PM me for more info, as I am only posting whatever they send me and I am not part of the organizing team. Thanks!

Poly Cocktails 8 Year Anniversary!
Monday, February 9th @ the Delancey


Happy happy Poly Cocktailsaversary!
That’s right, Poly Cocktails is turning eight this month! We hope you will join us for cocktails, community, and cake to celebrate Valentine's Day and eight wonderful years of Poly community.

For our eighth anniversary, we are very excited to have both the ground floor and the roof deck of the Delancey! We know things have been a little crowded lately, and while we certainly don’t mind getting a little cozy with all of you, we’d love to see you all out in force this month to celebrate our anniversary, so we got you a little more space!

And, for this extra special night, we thought we’d get a little footloose with our own well-loved DJ Friar Tuck! He’ll be spinning so we can dance all night on the ground floor, while the roof deck will be the usual chatting and snacks we always have (plus cake, of course!)

We'll be dressed in our Valentine's Day finest, and we hope you will be too!

*Who to bring/invite*
We attract a wide range of people who are in consensual open relationships. 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 note: Our venue is 21+

*Snacks/Drink Specials*
Along with bringing snacks, as usual, please ask the bartenders for our drink specials - $5 whiskey, well-drinks, and selected beers. We’ll also have cake to share to celebrate our anniversary!

It's always on a Monday. It's pretty much impossible to get people to show up to regular meetings for any group in Manhattan on weekends, because so many folks who work here live outside the borough. Coming into the city on the weekend is harder than going to a party after work on a weeknight, on your way home.
