Our Monthly Gathering generally draws several dozen people. We realize that’s a lot of people, which can feel intimidating to some new folks. Sharing the discussion time also means that we can’t always dive into a specific person’s questions in as much depth as we’d like.
We want to make it as easy as possible to get introduced to PolyColumbus and to provide in-depth answers to questions you may have. And so, we hold an event we call Coffe-amory!
Let’s get a beverage — caffeinated or otherwise — and talk about polyamory :-). Whether you’re curious about polyamory, are just starting out, or want help with a specific difficulty you’re having, we’re happy to chat! Coffee-amory is also a great way to get introduced to PolyColumbus, meet some new friends, or gain another perspective on a situation in your life.
We will have a PolyColumbus leader or two present (such as board or staff members) and there is no question too basic! We’re not able to be your therapist, mediator, or other professional, but we are happy to be your friend :-).
To ensure Coffee-amory remains a place to talk through intimate topics in a small group, RSVPs are required, with a maximum of four attendees. Further, we require those attending to have a specific topic they’d like to talk on. Alternately, you can join us if you’re new to polyamory (with lots of questions to ask!), or if you are new to PolyColumbus and want to know more about our community.
We have plenty of other social options — including the new Poly Lounge — for members of our community who are looking for the chance to just hang out with other poly folks.
We meet from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays, and from noon to 2 p.m. on the 1st Saturday, at the Crimson Cup in Clintonville at 4541 N. High Street, Columbus, OH 43214. The venue serves a variety of snacks and drinks, and we can always bounce next door to Panera for lunch or dinner if folks want to share a meal while talking.
Again, RSVPs are required, which you can put in at our Meetup page. We hope to see you there!
