Black Singles Picnic!

So nothing's wrong with being Black, single, and sexy. But why not spend a day being Black, single, and sexy together?

Join us for an afternoon filled with getting to know other Black singles in an environment with little pressure. We'll have a day filled with food, games, and good conversation. And if you leave the event with someone's phone number, even better!

Singles from all walks of life are definitely welcome to this event, including our boo'd up allies. But if you're in a relationship, it would be great if you brought along a single friend ;-)

See you at the event!

P.S. Please bring either food, utensils, or blankets for others to sit on.

    Someone left a baby blue blanket and a black folding chair. If these items are yours, please message me and we'll figure out some way for me to give them to you.

    • Astrid

      Hahaha well no one should expect to meet their soul mate at this picnic. But Saturday will be a great way for other Black singles to enjoy each other's company. Black love and unity at its finest!

      2 · July 18, 2013

      July 18, 2013

  • Astrid

    Hello everyone! The picnic is quickly approaching and being that it's a potluck, I ask that you please reply to this post with what you're planning to bring. You can bring either food, drinks (though the park is strict about alcohol), utensils, plates, cups, napkins, or blankets/beach towels for others to sit on.

    July 17, 2013

  • Astrid

    Does anyone have the game Twister that they could please bring?

    July 13, 2013

    I'll be out of town and won't be able to attend. Question though, are any efforts being made to balance the male/female ratio in this particular event? On the strategic tip...

    July 14, 2013

    • Ms. J.

      Yes, Astrid it'll be fun and a good time. And after all as the description says this is about bringing together Black singles is an environment with little pressure. ;-).

    If anyone needs a ride to the event, please comment on this post and I'll do my best to organize a carpool system.

    July 13, 2013

  • Michelle T.

    So if this is a potluck what all is being provided, what needs to be brought? Thanks I'm looking forward to this event

    July 10, 2013

    • Astrid

      Hi Michelle. Basically people can bring whatever they want even though if people bring alcohol, it should be discreet (I heard the park can be strict about alcohol). The week of the event, I'll send out either an e-mail or message asking people to say what they're bringing so there aren't duplicates.

      July 10, 2013

    • Michelle T.

      Okay cool that works..:)
