Sounds like fun! I still love the pub / club scene but never fear there's enough Stewie to go around!

@ Shaggy - I'll share it with the group!

@ Loosey - yes, you have, but that's OK - I like it when you call me dirty names.

Some might read it that people who go to pubs to socialise are immature, don't have a life, have terrible music taste, and are helping to enforce a gay stereotype while lining the pockets of evil capitalists.

You've inadvertently hit the nail on the head here.

- its time our community stopped relying on such venues to meet link minded gay people. Its time to abandon the feckless greedy money gay business owners, whose only motivation is to take the pink Euro - We don't have to listen anymore to some trendy fecker playing thump thump thump musak that inhibits conversation and real connections - the worm is turning - As a community we are maturing at last - we are now taking socialising power onto ourselves - we are deciding what type of social scene we want, rather than have these money grabbers f*cke*s dictating to us.

Err . . . At first it seemed like a nice idea but apparently there is an entire and bitterly resentful ideology behind it. Will attendees be obliged to listen to rants from the organisers if they turn up?

By the way, GLBT people have been organising events away from pubs and clubs for years, it's not like you invented the concept.

Here's a tip: DO talk up the positives of your nights out! DON'T pretend you've invented the wheel, and LEAVE OUT the angry fist-waving.

Good luck with it! It's a good initiative at heart xx

omydog, forgiving the outburst, I totally see where you're coming from and I understand your frustration. I think there is a need for this sort of stuff and it definitely appeals to me. I'd say just be careful with the word "mature" - I know what you mean, but people my age might think it's just for an older crowd...or maybe it just sounds a bit high and mighty.

If I'm honest, in my limited exposure to the scene, I have at times thought that there's some sort of PantiCult thing going on. I stopped hitting the scene pretty soon after I started - felt like I was stuck inside the Truman show...or something. Each to their own, but I'm much happier now - but also perpetually single. I might as well be a priest.

Good point.
Gaire has held regular gourmet meets for years, and irregular meets outside a pub/club venue, something im sure the OP has overlooked.

If I could trust myself not to dispense lectures on the state of this or that I'd go but I can't so I won't.

ok guya and gals - all points taken and understood - dident realise i was treading on so many eggshells - am so sorry that what was written by me offended peoples sensetivity. I guess when someone is on the scene (pubs etc) after a while it gets kinda boring and if you are not into the other specialist gay social groups that were alluded to, than somthinh like this is a great alternative to have an alternative social life - no-one is reinventing the wheel - but this type of gay web meet up group is a bit different.

The scene is great ( I enjoy it but not that much as i get older) and so is equally is not being on the scene - This concept is really a web notice board for people who have ideas to meet new people away from pubs etc..is actually a great idea.

Great idea, I would say there are gay people who would be uncomfortable entering the scene solo. People are usually there with their friends with this you know you are entering a scene at a welcoming venue and under no pressure.

I wish it well.
