Summertime: Is The Eventing Easy? Practical Tips for (Kinky) Event Prep
When: Friday June 15, 2018, from 7 to 8:30 pm
Where: Bare Bones Cafe, 2908 SE Belmont St, Portland
Whether you’re headed to HOWL to camp with Bad Girls, another kinky camping event, camping with pirates, or simply planning to go to a party for the evening, going to events is easier with preparation.
Come join in a discussion of practical tips for planning for and enjoying kink-related events. We’ll discuss many topics, including:
Setting goals and intentions
Planning a schedule that serves your needs
When to stick to the schedule and when to go with the flow
Eventing primer for introverts and extroverts
Energy – “Help, I’m all out!” and “Hey! I’ve got plenty to burn!”
Preparing for event “drop”
Coffee • Loose Leaf Tea • Vegan and Gluten Free Menu Items • Free Wifi • Freshly Made Pastries • Salads • Sandwiches
We’ll pass the hat ($1-3 suggested donation) and purchases support our venue but are not required.
Accessibility: If you are able to step on or over a 1″ high “lip” in the ground, you can enter through Bare Bones Bar’s side door on 29th St and travel completely on the flat (although with somewhat narrow doors) over to the cafe. If you are on wheels, the venue has a rather steep ramp (covers two steps up) that we will get in place for you.
ASL interpretation: If you advise us two weeks in advance, we will do our best to have a kink-friendly ASL interpreter join us for the evening.
Smoke break: There are chairs for smoking directly out front.
There will be a pansexual social after the discussion group for anyone who would like to gather and chat at Bare Bones Bar next door.
