Welcome to Bay Area Poly Happy Hour!
We're a non-monogamous happy hour bringing together communities from across the Bay Area.
All attendees need to take a rapid test on the day of the event prior to attending. Those without a recent test may be turned away at the door. *Alternative testing methodologies, such as PCR are ok as well.
If you have tests available to donate, please bring them with you and donate them at the door. Every test donated represents a person we won't need to turn away at the door. - Monetary donations are being accepted to help cover the cost of tests. Our price per test is currently $15, so every dollar helps. (Venmo: @allansteiner; CashApp: $AllanSteiner)
Monkeypox (MPX): While our event is fairly low risk for MPX, it is possible to lower your personal risk further by wearing clothing that reduces chances of skin-to-skin contact, and regularly washing hands with soap and water. For more information about MPX, visit https://mpox.tips
In addition to these rules, Brix581 is required to follow any local requirements. These can change quickly, so please refer to Alameda's "Updated Guidelines" Page for the latest updates. https://www.alamedaca.gov/RESIDENTS/ALERTS-COVID-19/Updated-Guidelines
If you develop symptoms following our event, please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can alert others.
Consent is an important part of the culture of our event. Please ask before touching or hugging others, and only act on an enthusiastic yes.
About Bay Area Poly Happy Hour
We welcome all the non-monogamous, poly-curious, relationship anarchists, queer-of-all-sorts, supportive friends, singles, couples, polycules, et al. to help us create a safe space for all orientations and all kink and gender identities. To this end, please don’t yuck someone else’s yum and practice enthusiastic consent [ask before initiating any physical contact (even a hug) and feel empowered to respond, "no thank you" to asks from others]
Poly Happy Hour brings together the Bay Area non-monogamous community, from long-timers to those just thinking about exploring, for an afternoon of mingling, friend-making and catching up.
No cover or cost to attend, but food and drinks are available to order. - If you're able, please support the folks at BRIX 581 who make this event possible. (buy drinks, come hungry, tip big)
BRIX 581 is located near Jack London Square. Have a drink and a bite, and meet some amazing folks. Menus will be posted when they're available.
We are asking that people who smoke things do so in front of the venue instead of on the patio to support members with sensitivities to smoke.
Our Oakland Happy Hour at Brix581 is a full takeover, which is why Yelp/Google Maps/ etc. will say the bar is closed.
We’re partnering with our friends at Bloom to help people connect before & after our events! Bloom Community is a sex-positive community building app based around events. Match, chat, and meet people before you go!
