So-Cal Polyamory - Dinner, Discussion and 2 (or more) Birthdays

Greetings!!!

Deborah and Arthur (Milton) will be celebrating their Birthdays at this meetup.  Deborah is turning 40, so come out and celebrate with us!

It is once again time to have our monthly Southern California Polyamory Meetup!!!  Our meetup is in the beautiful Downtown Burbank (click here for the downtown Burbank website) Fuddruckers.  There is a lot to do in downtown Burbank before the meetup so I encourage everyone to take a look at the website. Several movie theaters, clothing shops and the Media Center Mall and more :-)

The meetup will begin at 8pm and Fuddruckers closes at 11pm.

Please come and join us for a good time, good food and a great opportunity to meet new friends. Typically, discussions range from polyamory to current events, personal stories through our dreams for the future. I encourage people to move around and get to know one another.  Please also feel free to move the tables and chairs as we have the entire room for the group.  Bring your questions, and be ready for a fun night of socializing.  We do not typically have a planned discussion or group topic, but if you have one, feel free to bring it up.  I also set up a discussion thread for topics (click here).

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 in the past.  There are a few arcade games at the restaurant.  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)

 

The old rules still apply.

1.  Everyone is required to order something to help support the venue, and everyone is on their own bill.  We want Fuddruckers to be happy with us as a group and we want them to welcome us back.

2.  Please do not arrive before 8pm. There is plenty to do in downtown Burbank, including free wi-fi.  There is usually a party meeting in the yellow room before us, so please do not disturb them.  Our area will be roped off for us.  :-)

3.  A $2 donation (or more) is always appreciated to help me cover the fee Meetup charges me to organize the event.

4.  This is a family friendly event, meaning there most likely at least be my children present (ages 14 and 17).  If you bring your own children, please be willing to supervise them.  Because of the children and the nature of the meetup, this I do not consider the event a "pick up" event.  While connections hopefully will be made, this is a discussion and dinner with friends event.

5.  There is a lot of parking in downtown Burbank.  Parking is either on the street, in the lot off of First and Magnolia, the lot on Orange Grove between First and San Fernando, or in either of the lots on Orange Grove between San Fernando and Third. There is also parking at the mall (1 block away) and on the street.  (In other words, there is lots of parking available, but it does fill up, so take this into account when planning your arrival time).

I look forward to seeing everyone there!

Deborah

    I wanted to thank everyone who did make it out despite the weather and the DDOS attack that has had the meetup site down for several days. For those who couldnt make it....I completely understand, this has been one monster of a storm. I hope everyone made it through the storm unscathed. I look forward to seeing everyone at the next meetup. Hugs and blessings.

    My apologies to everyone for the No-Show. The inclement weather made a 1:15 hour trip each way something we thought was not in our best interests. I tried to contact the group to notify you of our decision not to attend, but the weather also had the board down all day. We hope to be able to attend the next get together. Again, our apologies.

    I would like to add my two cents if I may. Now I am neither defending nor criticizing, I am just adding my perspective. My wife and I have attended two of these meet ups now at the Fudd. And although this is an informal gathering with no particular topic I have to say that for us, we have been able to engage in deeply intimate personal discussions with a variety of interesting people, covering many different aspects of this life style, which for us is helping to give perspective and help define what it is we are looking for and how we fit into this new life style we have chosen to pursue. On top of all that we have had a crap load of fun every time we have attended. We plan on coming as often as we can get the chance. Thank you Deborah for continuing to put on this enjoyable event.

    It is misleading to call the Meet-up at Fuddrucker's a "discussion." There is no group discussion. The more accurate description would be "Dinner and Conversation."

      Stephen, this is the second time that you have posted this comment on the page for an event I am hosting. I am not going to change the name of my event. I like the way "Dinner and Discussion" sounds and looks from and aesthetic point of view. I am sorry that you do not care for the terminology. I am very clear in my description of the event that it is a casual event without a set topic unless someone has something specific they would like to discuss. I would also like to direct you to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition of "discussion". I feel that it accurately describes what we do at my events. ::: the act of talking about something with another person or a group of people : a conversation about something::http://www.merriam-we...­

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
