This month's event will have a dual holiday theme:
First, we'll let people discuss their plans, tricks and dilemmas in handling poly relationships vis-a-vis the year end holidays. Priority will be on sharing our personal experiences, but we might refer to what poly authors have to say, too.
Next, let's get more upbeat and talk about holiday presents: What sexy and/or poly-helpful gifts would you like to give or get? In particular, the options for sexy and kinky toys keeps expanding rapidly. It's hard to keep up with it all. As an example, Tom will show 3 very different male-oriented vibrator toys and 3 different interchangeable female vibrator toys. Bring your own show-and-tell items or just bring the name of a desired item and we'll look it up on the web.
Dining starts at 6:30; discussion starts at 7:30.
The meeting will be at the home of Tom S., 2312 Browning St., Berkeley

In the San Francisco Bay Area, EBPP/DG sponsors a monthly potluck and discussion in the East Bay (usually Oakland/Berkeley/Richmond area and environs), and occasional go-deeper special events.
All are welcome! Poly, poly-friendly, and poly-curious of all persuasions and a variety of ages. As long as you're open and respectful, we're happy to have you join us.
(What's polyamory? See websites like Loving More (www.lovemore.com), Love Outside the Box (loveoutsidethebox.com), morethantwo.com, or freaksexual.wordpress.com .)
The potluck/discussions are social events where poly folks can hang out, chat, and enjoy each others' company. It's a social event, not a meat market or play party. (Nothing wrong with play parties but this isn't one.) Kids are sometimes welcome with adult supervision (depends on the host). Bring a dish to share. Some locations have restrictions, so please read the email and/or the information on the RSVP page.
During the event, we break for a discussion at about 7:30, which usually runs 60-90 minutes. The discussion group is a place to talk about what's going on for you in your poly life, both from the head and the heart. We love to meet and hang out with good folks who are into what we are. Come join our community!
To partially compensate and honor the facilitator/s and host/s, we ask for donations of $20 - 15, sliding scale. On occasions when a host opens their pool or hot tub before the discussions, donations toward the heating and pool maintenance costs are especially encouraged. All donations are voluntary, and no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
We also love volunteers, so if you'd like to contribute and are short on cash, let the organizer or host know what you might be able to offer!
