What we're about


This is a multifaceted social club because we're multifaceted. Preferential recruitment is extended to LGBTQ people of any gender, but STR8's may be permitted with a chaperone.¹ Those who are keenly in tune with the humor and cultural milieu of Gay Twitter receive additional consideration. We read voraciously (ask us for great queer YA recommendations),² we love to learn, we're super feminist, we play bar trivia and mostly lose, we hang out at the park and other outdoor locations, we like board games, we like meeting new people. And, we're very nice.

LGBTQ-identifying or straight but nice about it. Probably a young professional in your 20's in the SF peninsula area. Looking for friends and things to do. Likes good, wholesome fun. Could be convinced to go for a hike maybe.

- harassment of any kind
- homophobia, transphobia, racism, sexism, derogatory language, or any other behavior that compromises our ability to create a safe and welcoming space for all members
- MAGA behavior

The Fine Print

¹You can come if you're straight, you don't actually need a chaperone. It was just a joke. Also, we won't grill anyone about their sexual orientation or gender identity, so you don't have to disclose anything you don't want to share. Let us know your pronouns though.
²You may be wondering, "If you love to read so much, why are you Book Club Dropouts?" It's because we actually read way too fast for the pacing of a normal book club, plus we like hanging out more regularly than a normal book club does. It's kinda like an Anti-Book Club-Book Club. Something like that. Plus we do other stuff. And we got really tired of trying to pick a cooler name.

Trivia @ The Patio

The Patio at Rudy's

Come join me for another trivia night at the Patio in downtown Palo Alto. Trivia starts at 7 and goes until 9, and happens to somewhat coincide with great happy hour deals! (I dare you to find a better deal on wings in PA). Happy hour ends at 7, so if interested, make sure to get there early! I’ll be there to reserve seats, RSVP so I know how many to save. See you there! Accessibilty: ✔️Fully ADA accessible ✔️5 minute walk from Palo Alto Caltrain stop ✔️Free street parking and lot across the street ✔️Bike racks nearby ❌Can get kind of loud ❌Gendered restrooms only ❌Seats are normally stools without backs but backed stools/seats can be found! ❌Lots of flashy TVs (no sound from them, has captions on)

Book Club: Pulp @ Heritage Park

Heritage Park

Our sixth official club read will be Pulp by Robin Talley! In this novel told in dual narratives, New York Times bestselling author Robin Talley weaves together the lives of two young women connected across generations through the power of words. A stunning story of bravery, love, how far we’ve come and how much farther we have to go. We are hopeful April will bring good weather, so we are hosting the event outside! Feel free to bring snacks, drinks, blankets, whatever you want or need! There is no bathroom at the park, fyi. In the event of rain/inclement weather, we will relocate the event to Coupa Cafe on Ramona.
