Please come and join us for a good time, good food and a great opportunity to meet new friends. Typically our discussion ranges from polyamory to current events, personal stories through our dreams for the future. Bring your questions, and be ready for a fun night of socializing. We do not typically have a planned discussion topic, but if you have one, feel free to bring it up. I also set up a discussion thread for topics.

Dress is always casual, so don't worry about dressing up, though some do dress up if they are thinking of heading out to any number of clubs that are located just over the hill in Hollywood.
Please bring the family, kids too (I usually bring at least my 17 year old, and sometimes my 14 year old). We have had newborns, toddlers, school age kids and teens at our events. The meetup typically has between 35-40+ people, sometimes more. (This is a joint meetup for Loving More and the Southern California Polyamory Meetup Groups)
Robano's has a decent Italian Menu including salads, sandwiches, pizza and Dinner entree's. Everyone will be responsible for their own meals and drinks. Also, seating is outside. We have space heaters and will be under awnings, but please dress appropriate for the weather.
I will be putting up donation envelopes to help cover the costs of running the meetup (Meetup charges me close to $20 a month just to organize the event). Suggested donation will be $2, more is always appreciated.
For those of you who are looking to arrive later, the meetup is typically runs from about 7pm to 10pm, but we occasionally stay as late as midnight.
Basic rules for Robano's
1. The meetup starts at 7pm, Robano's cannot seat us before this time. Please stay at the bar if you arrive early or until the organizers get there and put up the sign.Because of our size, we will likely not be using the couches any more.
2. You must buy your own food and/or drink. Please do not bring outside food or drink into the restaurant. This is standard restaurant policy.
3. Please treat the staff and other patrons with respect. We have a very large group and the staff work very hard to make sure our needs are met. Mistakes can and do happen. If you have an issue, please bring it to the attention of one of the organizers and let us handle it.
