Default NY Polys?

I figured, what the heck. My hubby and I are in NYC and have decided that, after the baby is born, we're going to start immersing ourselves a bit into the world that is poly. I'd like to maybe go to meetings, clubs, whatever's out there but I don't know where to start. He's found websites and events but I am SO shy about just showing up. I'd love to get to know people who are into the lifestyle and willing to show newbies around or at least help us be prepared for what to expect in the NYC scene. I'm only interested in friendships so not unicorn hunting or trying for hook ups. The best relationships are those I fall into, not those I seek out. Anyone else in NY willing to make friends? I know we're not known for our friendliness, but I've always been told I don't belong in the city.

Im in NJ, my bf , P, attends Poly \Hour a poly meetup once a month @ a bar in nyc. I however, have not gone yet as 1) I am bad at socializing in the best of circumstances and would be suuuper shy. I would probably end up just standing around while P the social butterfly does his thang 2) I am 100% new to poly and consider myself mono for the time being 3) I am not 21 untill september. Sad really =\ so P goes without me. but i hear its a lot of fun.
