North Jersey Poly Potluck

  • Sep 22, 2013 · 4:30 PM
  • Private House

Welcome to the inaugural North Jersey Poly Potluck!
Poly Friendly people gathering together to share food and community in Northern New Jersey.

"Relationships thrive when they are supported in a community that holds them sacred." Lisa, Event Host
What to expect: Poly friendly gathering for all ages, genders and relationship descriptions.
This is a relaxed, casual event for experienced Poly's, newbies, curious, sexuality positive and open minded people. And anyone who enjoys community, transparent communication and intimacy.

This is come as you are space. Share what is true for you now; relate with each other, ourselves and grow a community, cultivate relationship skills and to have some light hearted fun!

The formal discussion circle starts with a topic and is open to questions and concerns after the topic discussion. For the first gathering it seems to make sense to discuss "What is Polyamory? :: How Do You Do It?"

For the potluck, bring your favorite dish or dessert, enough for yourself and to share with 6 people. Include ingredients written on index cards for people with food allergies. This is an alcohol free event. Soft drinks will be provided by the host.

The event is Poly Family Friendly, kids are welcome and must be supervised by the adults who bring them. Teens and children are "at choice" to sit with the adults in the discussion group as long as they agree to the rules of the circle. Anyone of any age who becomes disruptive or disrespects boundaries will be asked to leave the discussion circle. Contact Lisa at [masked] for information.

This Poly Family Friendly event will be held at a private home in Bergen County (NJ). (About 20 minutes drive from the George Washington Bridge) Exact address will be emailed to people who RSVP with their contact information or via Meetup.com.
Include the number of Adults and Ages of Children in the RSVP.

Order of Events::

4:30 to 5:30 PM:: Informal Introductions; Eat and Socialize
5:30 to 6:30 PM:: Facilitated Discussion: Sept. "What is Polyamory?"

6:30 to 7:00 PM:: More Informal Socializing

7:00 to 7:30 PM:: Clean up and Good-Byes 'Til Next Time

Contact Lisa at [masked] for information.

    Dear Friends!

    It was great to see those who were able to make it to Lisa's house! The discussion was very open, loving, completely non-judgmental, and definitely something I'd like to continue! All that, and the food was just great!

    If you weren't able to attend the meetup - it's OK, there is a next meeting coming up on Sunday, October 27. In fact, now is a great time to RSVP!

    So let's do it again, come back, bring your friends, Lisa and I are looking forward to seeing everybody again!

    -Alex
