GROUPIES: the speed meeting party without the one-on-one | Thursday, 25. June 2020
About this Event
WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT
GROUPIES is the speed meeting party where you gather in groups for games, questions and introductions, without the pressure of a one-on-one.
Whether you're single, coupled or part of a group....and whether you're here to make friends or connect with threesomes or moresomes, GROUPIES connects you in small bunches so you can vibe off one another.
We provide prompts and interactive shenanigans to keep things lively.
WHO IS IT FOR?
GROUPIES is for individuals over 18, whatever age, race, disability, body, gender, sexuality, socio-economic status, location.
As with our other speed meeting events we encourage you to consider this as a way to make friends. But with GROUPIES the stress of having to bond with one person at a time is taken away.
