Default Poly Cocktails in NYC 5th Anniversary Celebration!

The latest announcement from OpenLoveNY:

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

** 5th Anniversary Poly Cocktails, Monday March 12th @ Affaire **

Can you believe it?! It's been five years since we started Poly Cocktails. Wow! What started as a small gathering of 10 friends and lovers has now grown to a mailing list of more than 1,000 people! Our goal was to celebrate polyamory and create much-needed community. We are very proud of what this community has accomplished in that time, the contributions from regular attendees of Poly Cocktails, and our affiliation with Open Love NY and the great work we’ve done together.

As thanks for all your support over the years, we plan to have a big celebration at the next Poly Cocktails on Monday, March 12th. We are still finalizing details, but trust us — you will not want to miss this one! Plan on bringing food to share, and we’ll have some special surprises in store.

We also want to encourage those who have stories about Poly Cocktails and how the event has impacted their lives and their relationships to contact us at openloveny@gmail.com. We’d like to share some of your stories at the event as part of our celebration.

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 might have a serious interest.

Yeah, I stopped going down there about 5 years ago - we had gone to a poly gathering in Central Park for the big NYC poly group and found it didn't really fit with the sort of events that we were looking for. both of us were rather "poly and that's it" and it seemed like most of the others there very strongly embraced the "poly and..." philosophy - the "and ..." being pagan, GLBT, kink, whatever and the crowd wasn't very welcoming of two rather "business casual" folks....
