For those of you interested there is an attempt to start a Weekly or Monthly OKCupid meet up in The Mission @ a cafe that hosts a free comedy night. I am connected to the cafe. But First need to get a sense if there is an interest in attending this sort of thing before setting it up.

 Here's an update peeps. So a got a couple more folks that showed interest via other forums/subjects on OKc. But it totally not enough people.  Come on! Help me help us! I'm talking uber cheap/free entertainment for us.

Spread the word!!

I could theoretically come out to this sort of thing, but I'm kind of a shut-in and have a strong tendency to flake.

But I do appreciate stand-up.

Send out messages to people in your area on here, and ask them to invite friends. I saw this and sent it to a friend that is in your area. Just make sure that you state this is NOT a solicitation, and that it's just to find out if there is interest for this type of 'meet up'.

Yeah, she^ got me all excited thinkin' she's coming, but she's in FLORIDA, land of the Scientologists and wrinkled-up retirees from New York. :P

I've organized a couple of OkC events in Calif and been to a couple of others, the problem is the way things are organized around here these days makes it almost impossible to organize. The forums and journals are invisible to most users and doing mass emailings runs the risk of getting booted for spamming.

Hahaha, you never know, sfguyy, I MAY just fly up there for one of those, especially if I get the chance to meet you!

Would they REALLY get booted if the sent mass emailings and stated as I suggested that it's NOT a solicitation, but a get together?

OH! And YOU, of all people should know better than to lump us Floridiots into either Scientologists groups or NY retirees! On second thought, maybe I DON'T want to fly to San Fran with all you gay pot smokers! *Hugs*

gay pot smokers!

Uh.  That characterization is accurate, though.

But gay pot smokers are cool. ;)

I have repeatedly asked the staff about the whole issue of trying to organize group OkCupid get-togethers over the last year or 2, and all I ever get is a bunch of silence.

Honestly, I'm beginning to think that they view us grassroots group social organizers as competitors to their for-profit group events. (WHICH AREN'T EVEN AVAILABLE HERE, FFS)

See if you can get kink.com to let you use the armory (their headquarters, they own this building).

They do everything they can to be a good neighbor. Good public relations is very important to this company.

They make BDSM videos there, so if they were located in another city, the cops there would figure out a way to get them evicted. They are grateful to their community for allowing them to stay there.

You may even get an opportunity to meet some of the pain sluts who work there.

^You assume that an important goal in one's life is to "meet pain sluts".

Yawn.

The challenge here is not to find a building, it is to find users to go.

Yeah, I personally want nothing to do with kink.com.  Bunch of dumb rednecks that exploit their models and shoot off guns inside their building.

I'd be interested too. Try posting an event like this on sf.funcheap.com

Its no fun if there aren't a lot of people to mingle with.

If you live in the Bay Area, there are so many events you can go to on a Sunday, that you can just arrange to meet OKC people at a festival where the datable people will be.

 

BTW kink.com models are masochists. They like being exploited.
