Meet and...nibble.

Hi, everyone! After a bit of a rest, we're back in action, and I'm so excited to be joining the leadership team. My name is Leela, and I was so excited when I saw this group on the Meetup list. I've done sex ed, events, writing, community building, and after trying to have conversations about sensuality, sexuality, and personal development in smaller areas, I'm thrilled to be in the Portland area.

We're going to kick off with a few easy gatherings around the region. It's just coffee, conversation, and real-in-person-meeting. We'll use this gathering and conversation to figure out what to offer, next, so come one down and be a part of the future! There's no fee this time, but do come prepared to buy a drink or some food to support the great folks who are providing the space.

This first meeting is at my new favorite coffeeshop-that-is-open-past-five, The Local Buzz. It's in Cape Elizabeth, but totally worth the drive. We're on the lookout for other likely venues for the next few events, so if you have one you love, open past five and space for a group, drop us a line!


Yay! It's tomorrow! A note on the location. The Local Buzz is great but I drove past it twice before I found it. If you've never been, it's IN A LITTLE STRIP MALL. There's a small grocery store or something, and a yoga place is moving in soon, and there's a home health place and a tutoring center. Do not be fooled. The coffee shop/bar is very cool. :)

    A great meet-up to kick off 2013. All new people to meet, seems each meet-up brings out new members. We had a wonderful time exchanging introductions and getting to know each other. Leela, had a great set of questions for everyone to help explore what EROS meant to the group. Everyone was very enthusiastic and eager to participate. Discussing ideas for meet-ups in 2013 brought out a wide range of fun ideas. I'm really looking forward to the year's events and meeting even more of our 100+ members.

    We had a good time. Lots of interesting discussion; Some ideas for future meets. Leela utilized some interactive techniques for us to gently get to know each other. Looking forward to the next adventure. Thanks to all who attended.

    Not organized. No structure.

    I'll be coming from Gorham if anyone needs a ride from that area. I hope to get there early, but the time I can escape from work is still unknown. Send a message if you are possibly interested and we can try to align.

    This is great! Potentially a larger gathering of members then any meet-up last year. An excellent kick off for the new year.

    Hey All, I will be leaving from Hallowell at 5:15 PM; if someone wants to carpool I am willing to take up to four passengers.
